Riced Cauliflower

riced cauli w herbsGuess what? Trader Joe’s now has bags of fresh riced cauliflower! This calls for a recipe.

It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been busy, and it’s been “good busy”. I’m nearing the end of a weekly mindfulness intensive, and it’s been fantastic, but also has cut way down on the amount of time I spend online.

If you haven’t already seen it, do check out the updated list I posted of the Nutritionist approved best of gluten-free grab & go! It’s a roundup of the healthiest pre-packaged options out there, and I update it yearly-ish. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Onwards towards the recipe:riced cauli

I love cauliflower in pretty much any way. “Ricing” cauliflower myself in the food processor is a pain because the pieces are always different sizes, so this is a great shortcut.

I was so excited to see the bags of riced cauliflower at TJ’s that I got two bags, and I think 1 would have been enough for the two of us.

  • a few glugs of olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2-3 sprigs thyme
  • 1 bag riced cauliflower
  • handful fresh basil, chopped or shredded
  • salt & pepper

Heat olive oil over medium heat and saute garlic until browning. Add in the thyme and cauliflower, stirring, and cook until it softens and starts browning. This took ~8 minutes. Stir in fresh basil, other seasonings & enjoy!

E and I both loved this. I was enjoying the rice so much I forgot to eat the main dish.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. How I wish I had a TJ’s! This would really get me to eat more cauliflower if it were available to me. I hope other stores like Wegmans start carrying their own versions as well. Your recipe sounds delicious, Cheryl!


  2. I love this news! It takes me forever to clean and pull apart a head of cauliflower. So long that I swear it off for months. My closest TJs is a madhouse, so I rarely go, but I just heard that they are putting in a new one IN my neighborhood! I can’t wait for all the time saving products like this one that I’ve heard about!
