Cauliflower Rice - Amazing!

I've made an amazing discovery! If you substitute cauliflower for rice in a fried rice recipe you cut a ton of calories and carbs. Okay, that may not be news to you, but it was to me.

I kept seeing recipes on Pinterest for cauliflower fried rice, but the thought of chopping a whole head of cauliflower into tiny rice-sized pieces kept me from trying it. (Just call me the Lazy Chef!). Then I found it - riced cauliflower in the frozen food section of my favorite grocery store.

Grabbed a bag of it and a bag of frozen peas & carrots. Went home, looked up a recipe and made this.

It was amazing. This was a meatless version,, but the next day I added grilled chicken to the leftovers - more amazing!

Tonight, I plan to make another batch and add shrimp!

So, what's the big deal? Check out these stats...

Rice - 204-218 calories per cup/43-46 carbs per cup
Cauliflower - 25 calories per cup/5 carbs per cup!

That's a huge difference and now, I can enjoy one of my favorite foods and feel good about eating it.

Want to try it out for yourself? Here's a great recipe -

Give it a try and let me know what you think.

  1. I just bought a bag of this and am anxious to try it. I've never used it before, but it was a markdown at Fry's so I grabbed it.
