Riced Cauliflower- the easy way

If you are grain free, want to eat less carbs, or eat more healthy vegetables , then you MUST try
" riced cauliflower"- You can make your own or now you can buy it frozen in Trader Joe's. It's also available in lots of other stores now- so look for it in bags fresh or frozen.



Do you love "cauliflower rice", but hate to make it?  Problem solved!
Trader Joe now sells bags of organic cauliflower rice in their frozen section.
Maybe I'm late getting on the band wagon, but I just discovered it, and I just can't get enough.

How do I prepare it? I take a skillet , spray it with olive oil, add the package of frozen cauliflower rice and allow it to cook down until nice and hot. I then serve it as " rice"

or sometimes, I sautee some onion first and then add the cauliflower rice-

How else can you use it?

If you are a regular reader on my blog, you know that I've posted quite a few "mock" ideas using the low carbohydrate, low calorie vegetable..:

Cauliflower Pizza,  

Cauliflower breadsticks ,

Cauliflower snow patties.-

Cauliflower Pilaf

The crust is made from cauliflower rice

These are made from cauliflower rice- YUM

Great Pilaf from Cauliflower rice!!! Less Carbs, more veggies

 All the taste without the carbs!  If you have not made cauliflower rice before, it's time you tried it.

Riced cauliflower is absolutely a fabulous substitution for rice.
It tastes delicious, and it is uncanny how much this low carbohydrate vegetable tastes and has the texture of high carbohydrate rice.

Make Your Own Cauliflower Rice

Yes, I know that I can make my own. 
I've been making it for years.
But it was time consuming and messy.  I had to I've take out the food processor , place in the metal blade, cut the cauliflower into flowerettes, add the cut up cauliflower to the bowl, process it with 2-3 blasts to have perfect riced cauliflower. Easy right? Yes,  but it took 5-10 minutes to prepare and then I had to clean up the processor and the counter.

 Thank you Trader Joe's !

    1. I love cauliflower rice, but was often too lazy to make it ,or just didn't have a fresh cauliflower in the house. Now my freezer is full.. call first and have them put away a few bags. It goes like hotcakes when they get it in..
