Have you ever noticed that several recipes that you have made called for orange zest but you just squeezed in some orange juice and called it a day. You thought that making orange zest was just too difficult of a process. You were wrong! It really could not be any easier and we are here to help you with all of the steps.
First you must know where the zest can be found. It will always be on the outside layer of the skin. Keep in mind that a little bit of zest is all you will need. The white part of the peel is very bitter so try to avoid using that in your zest.
The easiest and most convenient way to zest an orange is with the fine side of a grater. Sometimes it is common for a recipe to ask for different sizes of zest. If the recipe calls for a thicker zest then you should use the thicker side of the grater. While making this recipe Baked Orange Cauliflower Rice Bowl the size of the zest is not of great importance.
Having a surplus of zest is not an issue. Freezing the excess zest is a possibility and it can be used at a later date. An easy way to store the zest is to spread it out in a thin layer on top of a cookie sheet and then freeze it. You can freeze it in a ziplock bag for up to a month.

Make sure that you are cooking the rice long enough, otherwise it will turn out hard and crunchy.
It will also turn out mushy if it is not cooked long enough.
