What's your favorite recipe with riced cauliflower?

I got a couple of bags of frozen riced cauliflower to use in recipes and I'm trying to decide what to use it in first. I'm not a fan of just cauliflower so the less it tastes like cauli the better. I bought it once before and used it in place of rice or noodles in a saucy stroganoff and it was pretty good.

We like fried cauli-rice - I use small diced red bell peppers, green onions, the cauli-rice, soy sauce, a beaten egg, and at the very end, I toss in a small handful of frozen green peas and stir just enough to defrost/barely cook them. If you want meat in it, diced ham or chicken or pork is really good too!

That actually sounds edible. Not a fan of cauli rice either...I can eat it but...

I wonder if it's good soaked with salted butter? Anyone tried that?

All my years of eating keto, I have never tried cauli rice! I think it might be good with a stir fry or a chicken curry. I gotta try it!

Jambalaya! A bag of "rice", squeeze the water out. Creole seasoning. Raw shrimp. Sausage (andouille if you have it). Chunked cooked chicken breast (frog legs are better!). I don't measure either, add a little butter, chopped red and green peppers, onions, sautee til the shrimp is done.

These sound like great ideas. I was thinking of things like pizza crust or mock mashed potatoes. Has anyone tried those?

I've made "mashed potatoes" and they are good. I make them pretty much the same way as regular mashed potatoes, and they are especially good if you put them back in the oven with cheese on top and brown.

Hey, been here, look at the second post!

I like mashed cauli but I don't do it with the riced stuff - I use a fresh head, cut off the florets, micro-steam til very tender, drain VERY well, then I add butter and chunks of Brie cheese or cream cheese and some garlic salt and take the immersion blender to it. It's never gonna be "just like mashed potatoes" but if you take it for what it is, it's actually quite good. We like it as well as mashed potatoes, you just have to keep in mind it's mashed CAULIFLOWER!

Anywhere you'd use cooked ride, it works (but as Char said, it's still cauliflower lol).
Personally I find a lot of the recipes call for you to cook it too long, so it's kind of mush.
I prefer to just heat it through and give it maybe 1-2 minutes tops.
Some call for 10 minutes!
Pinterest and some paleo blogs (like nomnompaleo) have good recipes

I love it! Two of my favorites- chicken fried rice, just like Charski said up above. Stir in all your favorite fried rice stir-ins, add a protein, season with soy sauce, a splash of sesame oil, some red chili flakes if you like a little heat. I also love it as a side for Mexican, with Mexican seasonings- like the rice you get as a side in a restaurant. Makes a delicious base for a chipotle bowl.

We use it to get some good fiber into our low carb diet. So I actually add it to hiney helper, taco meat, loaded cauli, all kinds of soups, chili, etc. What I have found the key is is cooking it with the meats and seasonings. Don't wait until the end to add it. Add it right away and it will take on the flavors of the other food. Also, do not add to much, just use the serving sizes that match the dish you are making. In other words if it will make 6 servings, only add 6 servings of cauli to the dish. I hope that makes sense.

I either make fried rice with various flavors and meats, or I use it as a base for a dish with a flavorful sauce/gravy. I like the added texture and the sauce/gravy makes it more like I'm using a base of rice.

I have discovered I don't like all brands of frozen rice cauliflower though. So if you don't make it yourself and buy the pre-riced frozen stuff and don't like it, maybe try another brand.

If you like curry, you can also just steam it with a little salt and pepper and serve the curry on top like you would rice.
There's a really good butter chicken recipe on here that it works very well with

I've made a potato salad kind of dish..

Cook cauliflower and cool. Add mayo to taste, diced green pepper, onion and celery and two chopped hard boiled eggs.. Chill. You could also add bacon if desired.

The caulirice and broccoli casserole sounded good to me, too. I googled and found several recipes, but some included flour. This one does not. I think the cream cheese thickens it. I might try it.

4 Servings


Ingredients

2 cups broccoli florets
2 cups cauliflower florets
½ cup chicken broth
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
2 oz cream cheese
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese (to sprinkle on top) optional.

Instructions

Place your broccoli florets in a food processor and pulse until the broccoli resembles rice.
Do the same with the cauliflower.
Spray a large saute pan with cooking spray and and heat your pan to high.
Add broccoli and cauliflower rice and stir for a minute or two until the veggies get hot.
Add broth, cover and steam for 5 minutes.
Add the cream cheese and cheddar cheese and cook until melted.
Mix well.
Spoon into a serving dish and sprinkle remaining cheese on top if using.



Note: These directions call for ricing the broccoli as well as the cauliflower. I wouldn't do that, as my memory of broccoli rice casserole has florets of broccoli in it, but that would be personal choice.

I searched for this thread looking for information about cauliflower fried rice. The first time I made it I didn't like it, because the caulirice didn't have the flavor or texture of rice that I expected. I made it again today and loved it. I guess I no longer expected "rice." I didn't have any sesame oil. Other than getting some, what else could I do to it to give it more of a "fried rice" flavor? I did sprinkle in some soy sauce.

I made mexi cauli rice last night- straight from the freezer in to a hot pan, with a light drizzle of avocado oil. I added a couple of TBS of chicken broth right away, and cooked it pretty hot until all the liquid was cooked down. Seasoned with my typical mexi rice seasoning, and a small dollop of tomato paste. It was delicious! Cooking the broth in to it really gives it good flavor.
