Favourite ways to eat cauliflower rice?

Tonight I made butter chicken with cauliflower rice, it was so amazing. I used half a cup of rice mixed with 1 cup of cauliflower rice and I legit couldn’t even notice a taste difference but I cut the calories way down.
I wanna mix it with Mexican rice next!!

    I use as a direct replacement for rice in stuffed peppers (with sausage and pasta sauce) and in jambalaya. Both meals are ones we enjoy at least a couple of times/month.

    It's good with curry. Otherwise, it's just cauliflower pretending to be rice but fooling no one :tongue:

    Pretty much this.

    I primarily use it as a bulking agent in recipes. It adds volume for very low calories which reduces the total calories per serving.

    The trick is to not think of it as rice. I use it a lot in place of rice to control my calories, usually any recipe that has a sauce. After I heat it up I squeeze out the excess water using a kitchen towel to prevent it from watering down the dish. This way it absorbs some of the sauce, works real well!

    I like to make a fried rice using garlic, olive oil, sesame oil, soy sauce, and egg.

    Same here, it's nice and mild so it mixes in well with many recipes and sauces without adding a weird taste or texture. As a replacement for rice, though, it is very meh. I do, however, prefer cauliflower mashed potatoes over the real thing.

    I don't want cauliflower in my mashed potatoes. It would throw off the texture.

    This is the only way I've eaten it, and I like it.

    It's cauliflower cooked and then blended to be like mashed potatoes, rather than cauliflower in mashed potatoes. Definitely a similar texture to mashed potatoes, although a little thinner (which I like).

    I love Birds Eye meals. I eat their cheese rotini with broccoli a lot.

    I make it into fried rice. Add veggies, soy, chili sauce, butter, and some protein (egg/shrimp) Pretty good and keeps the calories down (ok, except for the butter...) But still helps. easy for when I'm home alone a night.

    Then it is mashed/blended cauliflower not cauliflower mashed potatoes.
