Recipe: Paleo Cauliflower Rice made in a Thermomix

Cauliflower rice made in a Thermomix is a match made in heaven. It’s super easy! This is another keeper like how Zucchini was a great replacement for noodles in our Chicken Curry recipe.

Firstly, why cauliflower? From Self Nutrition Data I found the graph below. 77% your daily requirement of Vitamin C, who would of thought. Now that’s much better than rice which only gives you only sugar 😛

  • Cooking time: 7min
  • Touch time: 5min


  • 1 whole cauliflower – chop roughly just so that it’s small enough for the TM bowl
  • Coconut oil
  • 2 red shallots or 1/4 of an onion
  • Concentrated vegetable stock. For recipe, click here.


  1. Chop red shallot or onion in the TM bowl. Speed 8 for 8 seconds or until the sound changes.
  2. Scrap the sides of the TM bowl so that the shallot or onion fall back to the bottom. Add 1 tablespoon of coconut. Varoma for 2min on speed 1.
  3. Add half portion of cauliflower. Chop at speed 5 on reverse mode for a few seconds. Be weary not to over chop. Empty TM bowl. Add the rest of the cauliflower, once again chopping at speed 5 on reverse mode.
  4. Cook at 100 degrees, reverse mode at speed 1 for 7-8min or until soft. Note: Halfway through the cooking process, add 1-2 tablespoon of concentrated vegetable stock and a little seasoning to your liking.

Serve as you would rice. I made some Stir Fry chicken with homemade XO sauce. The XO sauce went really well with the rice. For the XO sauce recipe click here.

Tip: I sprinkled a little magic mushroom powder over my cauliflower rice. Will have to blog about that one next time. It’s so simple and give a burst in flavour.

  1. This is becoming a very popular recipe. i suggest you chop your cauli on reverse speed 5 for 5 seconds. you will retain a nice texture without the risk of over processing.

  2. Tried this tonight for the first time. I can’t believe I’ve gotten 10months into a ‘not paleo’ but carb free dinners, without trying cauliflower rice. And in the thermomix, it was a breeze.
    Maybe I used to much cauliflower, but I ended up using the butterfly attachment thingy to help the stirring. Will definitely use that again.
    Thanks heaps for posting 🙂

  3. Hi, you mentioned mushroom powder, any more comments to this? Do you make is yourself? Chopping dried mushrooms with the Thermomix?
