  • 1 large head of cauliflower.
  • 2 tsp garlic powder.
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt.

  • 1/2 cup broth.
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley.
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil.


  • Chop cauliflower into florets and place into a food processor. Process until it resembles grains of rice.
  • Place all your spices into a small bowl and mix.
  • Heat a large skillet or wok with oil, when hot, add your cauliflower and toss to coat.
  • Sprinkle on your seasoning and cook for 2 mins.
  • Reduce heat to medium and pour in your broth, stir and cover with a lid to cook for a further 5 mins.
  • Remove lid, check that the cauliflower has absorbed the liquid and is tender. Fold parsley through and serve hot.


You can use frozen cauliflower that has been riced already. If fresh is not available. You may however only need to use 1/4 cup of broth.

To make your own mushroom powder, simply purchase some dried mushrooms, I use shiitake, place them into a food processor and blitz until powdered.

This dish freezes very well.
