With a trusty piece of kitchen equipment, a food processor.
Whiz that cauliflower around in the processor for a few seconds, and tah-dah! You have rice! I first made cauliflower rice after watching an episode of one of Jamie Oliver's shows. He made curry over cauliflower rice, and I was shocked how amazing the rice turned out...it absorbed the sauce of the curry wonderfully. Add in some soy sauce, sesame oil, veggies (plus the leaves from the cauliflower) and you have the ultimate fried rice! Watch it all come together on camera here:

-1 medium cauliflower cut into rough florets
-Leaves from the cauliflower, chopped (Don't use the tough outer leaves...use the softer inner leaves)
-3 scallions, chopped
-3 small carrots, chopped (or 2 large)
-1/3 cup corn
-1/3 cup peas
-2 eggs, beaten with a little salt
-3 cloves garlic, minced
-1 1/2 teaspoons minced ginger
-2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
-2 tablespoons soy sauce
1. In a wok over medium heat, pour in one tablespoon of the sesame oil. Add in the eggs and scramble. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Wipe out the wok.
2. Add in the second tablespoon of sesame oil to the skillet. Add the carrot, and cook for 3 minutes, until almost tender. Add in the garlic, ginger, and scallion, and frozen corn and peas if using, and cook for 3 more minutes.
3. Meanwhile, place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse for a few seconds; you want the cauliflower to be in very small pieces but still have some texture to it. This is your "rice".
4. Add the rice into the wok with the vegetables and cook until it develops a light brown color, about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. About 5 minutes in, add the cauliflower leaves. Stir to combine.
5. Add in the soy sauce and cooked peas and corn if using, stir to combine. Enjoy! :)
