I’m just wondering why there hasn’t been a recipe for cauliflower rice on my blog before. I love the low-carb rice substitute, which even tastes slightly like cauliflower with delicious toppings. Whether with Thai curry, chicken vegetables, or salad, the vegetable rice is a natural alternative to conventional rice. And the cabbage variant is also ideal for children. So what are we waiting for!
Low carb replacement products
There are so many low-carb alternatives to wheat products, and I’ve tried a few. So, there is, for example, the so-called konjac circle, which is made from the konjac root. There is also a konjac version of low-carb noodles. But between us – you can hunt me with konjac products. I don’t like them at all!
Much, much better. I like low-carb alternatives made from vegetables.
You probably know what’s coming next! Oh yeah, my beloved zucchini noodles. For me, THE alternative to pasta. Wonderfully crunchy, healthy, filling, and with the right sauce, simply heavenly delicious!
You can also prepare rice from vegetables. Quite simply, quickly and without pre-cooking! By the way, the preparation takes no longer than cooking rice.
Forget the slimy konjac circle and give cauliflower a chance.
Cauliflower rice – the low carb classic
Then let’s get started! Take a medium-sized cauliflower. This is divided into slightly larger florets and chopped in portions in the mixer until it is roughly the size of rice.
Now it’s time to sear. For this I use coconut oil, which gives the cauliflower a great basic taste. The cauliflower rice is fried in the pan over medium heat for about six minutes. Then seasoned with salt and pepper and your low carb rice is ready!
I still add some lime juice and mixed herbs (for example coriander) to my cauliflower rice.
Freeze cauliflower rice
Cauliflower rice is great to freeze. It is best to fill it into freezer-safe cans or freezer bags immediately after chopping. After thawing, all you have to do is fry the low carb rice in a bit of coconut oil.
