Stir fried cauliflower rice with Asian vegetables and sriracha marinated pork


February 11 2020


It's not only a low-carb option for rice, this powerful veggie packs in a lot of protein and other nutrients, too. We couldn't help but explore the many uses of riced cauliflower in the kitchen, including a hot breakfast "cereal," a quick "risotto," and a healthy take on shrimp and "grits."

Of course you can always rice your own cauliflower in the food processor, but if time is not on your side, look for the Hy-Vee Short Cuts riced cauliflower in the produce department or find cauliflower rice in the frozen food aisle. 

  1. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cauliflower "Oatmeal"

    The irresistible flavors of peanut butter and chocolate make cauliflower taste like a treat—trust us. Plus, you get an extra helping of vegetables.
