I like working with smaller size of cauliflower. My cauliflower was about 2lbs. Try to keep your Cauliflower under 3 pounds.
Remove as many of the green stalks as you can. The base remains uncooked, if you keep to many stalks.
I set my Instant Pot setting to "steam" for 1 minute and put it on low pressure. If you have a cauliflower that is larger than 2.5lbs, set it to 2 minutes.
Use a container to place the cauliflower in before putting it in the Instant pot. It will cook the cauliflower more evenly.
Instead of using oil in this recipe, I went with grass fed butter and that made ALL the difference. Butter is so much better because it made the cauliflower practically melt in your mouth.
You can u se vegan butter too, but, I preferred using regular butter in this recipe because it doesn't have any additional seed oils.
Once you have cooked your whole cauliflower, use your food processor to turn it into rice. It's faster and easier than trying to cut it by hand.
Be sure to make it cool down first before chopping the cauliflower. It's better for your food processor.
Don't make it too mushy in the food processor. I didn't press the chop button for more than 3 times. Eyeball it and see if it looks mushy or not. It will depend on your food processor.
You may have to put some of the large pieces back in the food processor to make them smaller.
Use as many organic ingredients as you can in this recipe.
