How To Rice Cauliflower
Cauliflower rice is one of the most easy and versatile dishes you can eat when changing to a low carb diet – it is packed with flavor, fiber, nutrients – and NOT carbs.
To make riced cauliflower, I prefer to use a boxed grate with uncooked cauliflower.
I have seen a lot of people rice cauliflower after cooking to soft – but that way always ends up being super mushy for me, since boiling cauliflower first will cause a lot of water to be absorbed by the cauliflower.
If you use a box grater to grate your cauliflower, it makes a perfect rice shape that is easily pan fried, baked, sauteed, or stir-fried – so it cooks quickly, without taking on or releasing too much water into your dish.
Keto Soy Sauce Alternative
If you’re looking for the perfect keto soy sauce alternative, since soy often contains gluten as a preservative, I suggest Coconut aminos!
I love Coconut aminos – and they come in a variety of flavors, like regular (which tastes like soy sauce), Teryiaki, Garlic, and more.
Because coconut aminos come from coconut, they are a healthy, low-carb, keto friendly soy sauce that also works for celiac eaters as well (be sure to always check labels carefully to be sure you are eating items that do not have pesky gluten preservatives!)
