Riced cauliflower is so easy to make and this post will show you how. Since cauliflower is a very versatile vegetable used as a substitute for rice in low carb diets this post will help you prep this vegetables ahead of time.
I had heard a lot about store bought frozen riced cauliflower and I have been curious to know what this cauliflower was all about. I was wondering if it was any different from the riced cauliflower I made at home using my box grater or food processor.
Each time I passed by the freezer aisle in Costco I see customers stretching their hands and taking the frozen riced cauliflower and believe me it finishes super fast.
One day my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to buy a pack and give it try. In fact I think I picked up 2 packs because I I was going to have a super busy week so i wanted to have riced cauliflower on hand for my various cooking escapades.
When I got home I dumped them both in the freezer. The next time rice and stew was in the menu, I went to the freezer to try my store bought riced cauliflower.
First of all I was pleasantly surprised that there were 4 individually packed bags in there which made the frozen cauliflower rice easy to handle.
Then microwaved it as per instructions and it turned out fine. And I said to my self yes this looks good and saves time but why not make yours ahead and freeze in smaller freezer bags and boy has it saved me lots of money. Dear low-carber if you are reading this and you also buy frozen riced cauliflower from the stores, you need to try this homemade version with same benefit of time saving but an edge over the store bought one since it saves you some $$
You can use the large perforated holes of box grater, a food processor or even your ninja blender which is what I eventually used.
How is Homemade Riced Cauliflower stored?
Simple! Just like the store bought one. Just transfer the riced Cauliflower into a freezer bag like this one push out the air in the bag and seal. Store in the freezer for later.
What recipes can I use the this homemade riced cauliflower for?
- Butter cauliflower rice
- Fried cauliflower rice
- Jollof cauliflower rice
- In cauliflower salads
Whenever you want to use the frozen riced cauliflower, either you let it thaw before using or you remove it from the freezer bag to a microwave safe plate then cook it in the microwave for about 5 mins. Enjoy
