From mashed potatoes to pizza crust, at this point, cauliflower has been turned into just about everything — thanks to the popularity of low-carb diets such as keto. Cauliflower in a rice form may have been one of its OG shapeshifts, but lately cauliflower rice has been gaining traction as an option to keep your sushi rolls while nixing the carbs and keeping it keto. It’s even popping up as an option on popular restaurant menus like Bondi Sushi in NYC. Safe to say that trend may travel.
Cauliflower rice only contains 3 grams of net carbs per cup — that’s 18 times less than white rice, according to Healthline (not to mention the additional vitamins and minerals that accompany opting for the vegetable). The best way to turn a head of cauliflower into rice is with your friend, the food processor (via Food Network Kitchen). If you skip the sugar and opt for monk fruit as with The Synchro Life’s recipe, your keto diet will be none the wiser.
