Rice pudding was never my forte, but who knew I would end up with this bomb recipe while experimenting with cauliflower? That’s right, this easy cauliflower rice pudding contains no rice at all, but cauliflower florets and some other paleo-friendly ingredients. You can, indeed, make rice pudding without rice. In this case, I’ll be making use of riced cauliflower, which will make up the bulk of this recipe

Creamy Cinnamon Cauliflower Rice Pudding

What is Riced Cauliflower?

Riced cauliflower is cauliflower that has been processed in a food processor until it’s small enough to resemble rice. This is accomplished by pulsing or using a specific attachment in the food processor to give it the desired texture.

Is Cauliflower Rice Paleo-Approved?

Since cauliflower rice is made up of only cauliflower, it is absolutely 100% paleo-approved. It’s actually one of my cooking and baking staples, so if you’re not already familiar with how versatile it can be, I’m sure you’ll figure it out in no time.
