Rice is always a great side dish but if you are eating keto or low carb, it won’t work. The solution? This amazing cauliflower rice recipe. It really is fabulous!

Now, I have had several skeptical people try this cauliflower rice and they have all been very surprised by how delicious it actually is. It isn’t your normal rice, but you will be surprised by how much you love it.

We love to use this cauliflower rice in my Taco Rice Casserole. I just toss it in raw and it is so delicious. No one even misses the carbs!  I wouldn’t microwave it for this recipe though. Just toss it in raw.

The entire family loves Crockpot Taco Rice Soup and cauliflower rice is amazing in this recipe too! Another favorite is this Crockpot Stuffed pepper soup.

This cauliflower rice recipe is that easy!

However, it tastes great and works well to replace your regular rice in any of your recipes. If the thought of loosing all of your rice scares you mix it in with your brown rice. My kids didn’t even notice it when we did it.

We have also put this cauliflower rice in our soups instead of regular rice and our kids didn’t even question us. I loved it because I was adding a vegetable into our meal where we normally wouldn’t have it.

Once you try cooked cauliflower rice, you will see how easy it is. It only takes a few minutes to turn a head of cauliflower or cauliflower florets into delicious cooked cauliflower rice.

Try this side dish for a great recipe. It is one of our favorite cauliflower rice recipes and gluten free. You can use this to make fried rice in stir fries with a little olive oil.

The ideas are endless and your entire family will enjoy it. My kids were hesitant at first but really loved it once they tried it.

Let us know how it turns out for you! It is really so good and very easy to make!

  1. Yes, you can. Just add some water, and steam it slightly in the a pan with a lid. It should still only take a few minutes. Come back and let me know how you like it.

  2. I make cauliflower rice, freeze in portions for my family. Then heat in butter in frying pan along with chopped onion, peppers, garlic and herbs ,whatever you like. Eat with a bit of soy sauce. Just another way to cook it.
