Cauliflower rice is a staple in our home. It’s toddler approved and a great way to up the veggie content at each meal. When I was pregnant, I became pretty sensitive to carbohydrates. My blood sugar would spike pretty dramatically with simple carbohydrates, like rice, so cauliflower rice was a great way to add some oomph to a meal without the blood sugar spiking consequences.
We keep our cauliflower rice budget friendly by buying the frozen 3lb bags at Costco. Not a cilantro fan? You can mix up the seasonings to your taste! Parsley or a bit of chopped rosemary is delightful.

Note: You can find cauliflower rice in the freezer section at most grocery stores these days. We snag ours at Costco for a screamin’ deal. If you aren’t working with pre-riced cauliflower, don’t worry! You’ll need about a head of cauliflower for this recipe. To “rice” it, simply grate it with a box grater or pulse the florets in a food processor until a rice like texture is reached!
