Cauliflower rice is an easy ketogenic carb swap that is invaluable in your menu repertoire. When the rest of the family is eating rice, you can whip up some cauliflower rice.

I love the taste of cauliflower rice when cooked with butter. It adds a wonderful flavor to the meal compared to rice which merely carries other flavors. Create a variety of flavors by adding spices (dry or fresh), lemon juice, garlic or pine-nuts.

An added bonus with cauliflower rice is that it is much quicker to prepare than regular rice. You will have it on your plate in 10 minutes.

 

How to store fresh cauliflower rice

After blitzing the cauliflower in your food processor, it can be stored prior to cooking, in the fridge for 4 days or in the freezer for 2 months.

When frozen cauliflower rice defrosts, it looks quite gluggy. Don’t worry though, it comes back to life when pan-fried!

How to cook cauliflower rice in the microwave

Microwaving cauliflower rice is super easy to do but doesn’t require any butter or fats so is not as keto friendly. To make it – place cauliflower rice into a microwave safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Cook on high for 3 minutes.

 

Store bought cauliflower rice

Cauliflower rice has become so mainstream now that you can buy it in pre-packaged and frozen forms. You’ll find it in grocery stores like Trader Joes and Wholefoods. The large chains like Aldi, Walmart and Costco also carry cauliflower rice.

Cauliflower rice can also be found now in Europe and Australia, so check your local supermarket or grocer.

Look for it in the produce aisle or in the frozen section.

Pre-packaged cauliflower rice can even be found on Amazon. These packets would be great to have in your pantry! There’s even one that combines cauliflower rice and broccoli rice! Perfect for busy nights…
