How to make cauliflower rice without a food processor

Don’t run out and buy a food processor! You can use a box grater. It’ll just take a bit longer (as well as a little more elbow grease), but this method has some advantages. Simply cut a head of cauliflower in chunks (think large florets) and grate using the medium-sized holes.
