Have You Ever Tried Cauliflower Rice?

Cauliflower is a low glycemic vegetable and a great alternative to rice. Here is an easy way to prepare cauliflower for rice, and a recipe to pair with some lean protein for a balanced meal.

How to “rice” cauliflower:

Wash and remove leaves from a head of cauliflower. Cut the cauliflower into flowerettes. Place it into a blender and fill the container with cold water. Pulse the blender and the cauliflower will swirl around and become finely “riced”. Drain into a colander. The cauliflower rice can be stored in the fridge for up to a week in a mason jar.

A simple tasty recipe: Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

2 cups riced cauliflower
1 teaspoon Smart Balance
1 teaspoon olive oil
juice of 1/2 lime
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
1 small garlic clove, pressed
Sea salt and Fresh ground black pepper

Heat butter and oil in a saute pan. Add garlic and cauliflower and saute until softens. Add lime juice and cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.

The great thing about this “rice” is that it takes about 10 minutes to prepare and is low glycemnc.
