Herb Cauliflower Rice


Moms are the best. For so many reasons. And especially when they give you recipe tips that you can use on your blog. ;)

Mom pointed me towards this perfect bag of frozen cauliflower rice that is available in the grocery store, already flavored beautifully, quick to whip up in a skillet or microwave, and not overloaded with preservatives or funky ingredients. 

Cauliflower rice is a trendy alternative to carbs and a crafty way to pack more veggies in your diet. Although it doesnt have the fluff of a starchy rice, it is pretty tasty as a side or a base and the texture is lovely. If you make it from scratch in your food processor, make sure to give it a flavor boost with herbs and spices. This pre-made, working woman's dream comes in a savory herb variety that was delicious. Add some sauteed tofu or avocado, and it is perfect for a work lunch or light dinner. 

I spontaneously decided to see a movie after work one night because hubby was busy. I saw Overboard - it was really cute and heartwarming! I had some cucumber and hummus right after work to tide me over through the movie, but when I got home at 9pm, I was desperately in need of something quick, delicious, and healthy to eat. Cue frozen cauliflower rice - thank god I had you waiting in the freezer!
