Easy Cauliflower Rice

Easy Cauliflower Rice

Riced cauliflower is a great alternative to regular rice and grains, especially if you are watching your waistline.  Here is a simple, quick recipe that you can have on the table in 10-15 minutes. Serve with a side of protein of your choice and a salad, and you have a well-rounded meal.

In this version, I used Trader Joe’s frozen riced cauliflower, which I kept on hand for quick week day meal prep.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 oz sliced baby bella mushrooms
1 bag frozen Organic Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower (12 oz)
1 teaspoon dry dill weed

Method:

  1. Heat pan on low heat.
  2. Add extra virgin olive oil once pan is hot. Heat oil for one minute.
  3. Add minced garlic and mushrooms
  4. Cover and increase heat to low-medium.
  5. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Add dill weed at the end.
  7. This will result in an “al dente” consistency.
  8. If you prefer it cooked softer, you can cook covered for additional 5 minutes.
