  • 1 whole cauliflower
  • 1 lemon
  • Handful soft herbs, e.g. mint, parsley, basil
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Grate, finely chop, or place cauliflower florets, stalks, ribs and leaves in a food processor, until it resembles a texture similar to chunky breadcrumbs.
  2. Place in a large microwavable bowl with a splash of water and cook for about 5 minutes, the steam produced as it microwaves will cook it. Stir and check if it is cooked; if needed microwave for longer.
  3. Zest and juice the lemon, and chop the herbs. Add to the cauliflower rice and mix well, season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add extra vegetables and serve as a summer salad  or use with any dish as an alternative to rice.
