Riced cauliflower is tasty and healthy side dish, good substitute for the regular rice. Cauliflower rice is a low-carb dish, packed with fiber. It is surprisingly easy to make!

Here is video recipe:

Flavor

To boost the flavor and color, add spinach and spices to your taste. I decided to add chili flakes for the spicy hint and beautiful look. On the other hand, cumin seeds makes cauliflower dish more aromatic.

Try also adding beans or peas, carrot or zucchini and some mushrooms to the cauliflower rice. Cauliflower will absorb all these delicious flavors.

Cauliflower rice for every day

If you are on a low-carb diet, you must take a look at cauliflower rice and consider it as your side dish. It is a quick recipe, because it doesn’t need much time to cook! Moreover, it tastes beautiful, it has mild sweet nutty flavor.

Make your cauliflower rice at home

There are some brands available in the store, where the cauliflower is already riced. But, to my mind, raw fresh cauliflower may be cheaper and will have more flavor. It is better to invest in good food processor, but you can also use old-school grater to make cauliflower rice. Once you prepare raw cauliflower rice, you can store it in the fridge for about 3 days or a month in a freezer, until you’re ready to use it.

Cooking cauliflower rice

There are different ways to cook cauliflower rice. I stir-fried the rice with a cup of water for the light and moist texture, but it would be great to steam the rice as well. However, be careful not to overcook it, as it will become mushy. On the other hand, if you bake it (it’s more time consuming), you will have more nutty flavor from cauliflower.

Enjoy your bowl of cauliflower rice!
