Why I Bought 21 Bags of Riced Cauliflower

Have you ever tried riced cauliflower? Yeah, it’s good, huh? Well, have you ever tried to rice your own cauliflower? Yeah, it’s a pain in the blender, huh?

While I don’t like ricing my own cauliflower, I sure like adding it to meals – mainly at dinnertime. (I try and stay away from carbohydrates in the evening, but instead eat them earlier on in the day.) Well, Trader Joe’s sells organic riced cauliflower in the frozen section!! The trouble is, everyone and their mother (literally) are snatching this goodness up making this convenient option totally elusive most of the time. So, whenever I see it in stock at Trader Joe’s, I’m all, “Come to Mama, baby.” Which is how I ended up with 21 bags in my cart.

These babies have a dedicated drawer in my freezer and I whip them out whenever I need to add a little “rice” to the meal. It takes a few minutes on the stovetop to prep and could not be less of a pain in the ass. I spray a pan with olive oil spray and sauté the cauliflower, stirring every so often.

My favorite ways to use the cauliflower rice…

  1. Topped with a good veggie and chicken stir fry
  2. Topped with shredded chicken
  3. In the mix for stuffed bell peppers
  4. Topped with red or green lentils

    I would definitely do this too! I made cauliflower rice in my mini food processor one time and it was SUCH a pain. Since it was a mini food processor, I had to do it in several batches and then got the “rice” everywhere when I was transferring it into the bowl. My trader joe’s is always sold out as well so I’ll definitely be grabbing several bags when I see it next.

      I’ve hear rumors of some stores asking patrons to limit their purchase to 2 bags. I get it – but, I just want them all. Every single bag. Ha!
