Even though I’m totally down with white rice (find out why it’s healthier than brown rice here), I often like to use riced cauliflower instead. It tastes great and it’s incredibly nutritious. Cauliflower is a great source of vitamin C, folate and a whole buncha’ minerals. Another benefit is that it’s low-carb. While I don’t think low-carb is necessary for everyone, it is helpful for certain people, especially those with digestive issues.

Subbing cauliflower for rice is an easy, healthy and tasty swap. It’s also really easy to make riced cauliflower. Just break apart a head of cauli into florets, then add them to a food processor and pulse until it resembles rice. If you don’t have a food processor, you can grate the cauliflower.
