Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower Review

Carbs for some people no good.  For some of us we can polish off a whole plate of rice when it is presented to us.  So an an effort to cut calories, I picked up this bag to see if it was any good and if it can replace rice in a dish.  For only 25 calories per serving and $2.49, it was worth a try.

What do you do with this?   Unlike so many of my other posts you’ll have to do a little bit of actual cooking (but not much).

How much “rice” is in this bag?  Enough to fill a 12″ skillet.   Trader Joe's Riced Cauliflower

Sautee this with a couple tablespoons of olive oil, perhaps some shallots or onions, wait for it to soften (about 5-6 minutes) and serve.  You’ll want to test to make sure there are no crunchy pieces.  Trader Joe's Riced Cauliflower

So what did I think of it?  It was good, but I’m not sure I’m willing to give up rice completely.  I served it with some Trader Joe’s Palak Paneer.  I found this rice to be much more filling that traditional rice.  The taste was good and close to rice like.  I also didn’t feel as sleepy as I would after polishing off an entire bowl of rice.  So if  you are looking to cut calories this maybe a good starting point.   There is also a time saving factor here.  You could make this yourself by putting cauliflower into a food processor yourself, but for $2.49 for a pound of already riced food, why deal with the mess?
