Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower Rice

This delicious, savoury cauliflower rice is a great low-carb side dish for Thanksgiving dinner.  It can also be used as a base for any protein/veggies of your choice!


  • 4 cups riced cauliflower (either from food processor or bagged; if frozen, allow for more cooking time)
  • 5 cups shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs of choice (i.e. rosemary, thyme, basil, Italian, any combination)


  1. Preheat oven to 425-F.
  2. On a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper (or silicone sheet), combine all ingredients except ½ cup of the parmesan. Mix to evenly distribute the oil, cheese and herbs over the cauliflower. Spread in an even layer. Top with remaining ½ cup parmesan cheese.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 min. No need to stir during cooking. Enjoy!
