How long does cauliflower rice last?
Raw Cauliflower Rice
We find that if you turn cauliflower into cauliflower rice and leave it in the fridge for a few days, it develops a strong and unpleasant sulfur smell. So its best to use it right away or freeze it.
Cooked Cauliflower Rice
Cooking cauliflower rice prevents it from developing a funky smell as quickly. Cooked cauliflower rice keeps for approximately 4 days in a sealed container in the fridge.
Firstly, cut the cauliflower into evenly sized florets. Then you can place it into your food processor or a mixie jar or use a garter. Blend the cauliflower using the pulse setting mode. Continue to pulse until it resembles rice. If there are any large pieces, remove them and blend them separately.
