    I think they make a black bean pasta. check your local "health food" store. 25grams of protein and 9 grams of fiber per serving me believes.

    The calorie count is pretty much the same as regular pasta though.

    I enjoy the Birdseye Vegetable the frozen veggie section; They have a really great texture but as others have pointed out, the calorie count is not much different that regular noodles.

    I have a really good rice pilaf recipe I got from a former coworker. I sub riced cauliflower for the actual rice and it turns out fine. (Of course I like cauliflower a lot so it's NBD to me.)

    I like making curry dishes and putting that over riced cauliflower. I've never been a big rice fan (we ate too much of it growing up), but this works nicely for me.

    I tried it and thought it was yucky, for lack of a more technical term :tongue: Did not care for the taste or texture, even buried in a flavorful curry sauce. I'll just have to stick with rice in appropriate portions, I guess!

    I pair cauliflower fried rice with the following sauce:
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    2 tbsp brown sugar
    1 tbsp sriracha sauce (I add more because I like heat)
    1 tsp sesame seed oil
    2 tsp rice wine vinegar

    I always stirfry other veggies in and it’s delish. Sometimes I’ll add brown rice.

    I like a little butter and pepper on my cauliflower rice. So good!

    Cauli-rice and zoodles, faux foods. I've tasted cauli-rice pizza and zoodle courgetti spaghetti. I'd rather eat twigs, pinecones, dirt and old tennis shoes. So I eat the real things and pay as I go. Simply track my portions and enjoy every single bite. Faux foods have a blowback component. The food reckoning. They leave you lingering long and having thoughts about the real things.
    If you don't consider vegetables real food I guess.

    Well, cauliflower is a real food that I like. As is rice. But I can't argue with calling cauli-rice a faux food. I made it...once.

    I made spaghetti squash once as well. That was plenty.

    I love veggies. But I also love carbs, and IMO non-starchy veggies make terrible substitutes for carbs.

    I just made cauliflower risotto this evening. I just cook it like rice risotto and it turns out great. This time, I minced garlic with it. I used the hot low sodium veggie broth method. Takes a good 20 minutes and somewhat a hands on process but the end result was a flavorful, creamy dish that I can't wait to have left overs tomorrow.

    I love cauliflower rice. I make it mexican, greek, chinese...just about any type of cuisine. To me, rice has no flavor without adding herbs and spices much like cauliflower rice.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions and tips. I will look into seasoning and make sure I don’t over cook.

    As for pasta, I knew that was too good to be true. I’ll just have to be super mindful when I eat it, and make sure I enjoy every. Single. Bite.

    You can buy low carb pasta in places like health food shops. Some are made with edamame beans for example.
