One of my kid’s favorite foods is by far fried rice. We love to go out for Thai or Hibachi food and fried rice is always part of their order.

Is cauliflower rice better for you than rice?

Cauliflower has several different health benefits. It is high in fiber, contains many valuable nutrients, helps aid the digestive system and has even been known to help with weight loss! Not to mention, it is lower in carbs than rice, so we LOVE using cauliflower where we can!

Can I use frozen, pre-riced cauliflower?

Definitely! I prefer to use fresh cauliflower when I can because I think the texture is slightly better, but using fresh adds a bit of extra work for not that much of a difference! When I want to go easy, I use 2 bags of frozen, pre-riced cauliflower that you can find in any grocery store. When using this, pour the frozen cauliflower into the wok, but do not pre-cook it as that will make the rice mushy! Follow recipe directions as normal.
