Cauliflower rice is a trendy and nutritious replacement for white rice, especially for those on a low carb diet. It contains only 4g of carbohydrates and 20 calories per cup vs 45 g of carbs and 204 calories per cup for white rice. For the long haul, however, what most of us want to know is, “how good does it taste?”. In the case of cauliflower rice, flavor and texture depend on how it’s cooked. As with rice, cauliflower lacks a strong flavor, so the taste depends on what ingredients are added to it. Texture depends on how it’s cooked. The trick is to squeeze as much water out of it as possible before cooking, so it doesn’t steam while cooking. After squeezing, saute it in a small amount of oil. For a delicious cauliflower rice side dish, try adding combinations of lemon, garlic, herbs and sautéed chopped vegetables.
