One of the things I hear a lot from carb lovers when I talk about eating low carb or keto is, "Don't you get tired of cauliflower?".

Even my beloved hubby has been guilty of giving me the eye roll when I tell him we are having cauliflower in a recipe.

Then I pointed out how many times we had potatoes, or pasta, or rice per week before I went low carb. 

All of those things are basically a nice neutral vehicle for sauce, or cheese, or other flavorings right?

ENTER CAULIFLOWER!

I cheese it up like in this Cauliflower "Mac and Cheese", sauce it up in this Deviled Egg Cauliflower Salad, and flavor it up in this Lemon Garlic Mashed Cauliflower "Potatoes".

Even though he will give me the "look" he always loves the way my cauliflower dishes come out.

He just really loves to give me a hard time.

A lot of stores sell cauliflower rice and don't get me wrong, I have bought bags of both fresh and raw before to save a step here and there.

But, what I find is that the fresh cauliflower rice gets a funky smell to it if you don't use it immediately (because you never really know how old it is), and the frozen, more times than not, reheats soupy and/or mushy. The only frozen cauliflower rice I have found that doesn't is Bird's Eye.

Honestly, it is the storing of the heads of cauliflower that is more of a pain than actually making the cauliflower rice.

I have been trying harder to do more meal prep to make my life easier through the week and cauliflower rice is one of the best meal prep ideas out there! Just a bit of a chop and a go-round in the food processor and you can pop it into a freezer-safe bag or container and it is ready to go!

How to Make Cauliflower Rice

  1. Rinse the cauliflower and chop it into chunks, including the stalk. 
  2. Discard the leaves and, if you have it, give it a spin in this vegetable spinner to make sure it is as dry as possible.
  3. Place the cauliflower into a food processor.
  4. Pulse until the cauliflower resembles the texture of couscous or rice. 
  5. Work in batches, if necessary, and be careful not to over-process or it’ll get mushy when you cook it.
  6. Cook immediately or place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 2 months.

What to Make with Cauliflower Rice


Cauliflower rice can be served raw in dishes like this Mediterranean Cauliflower Salad, or subbed for the cooked cauliflower in this Cauliflower and Bacon Salad with Mustard Herb Vinaigrette.

If you are looking for a cooked dish, you could give this Garlic Herb Cauliflower Rice, or this Mexican Cauliflower Rice.

If you are looking to really snaz it up, give this Shrimp and Bacon Cauliflower Fried Rice a try.

I even use it in my meal prep for things like this recipe for Mediterranean Meatballs.

It is also great in casserole type dishes like this Italian Beef Bake.

I am experimenting with some of my favorite rice-based casseroles with great success as well!
