Need suggestions for how to make cauliflower rice not taste like cauliflower. I love rice, eat it almost once week (significantly cut down from eating it almost every day as a child through college 😅) so switching to cauliflower rice is a challenge since texture and taste wise, I just KNOW it’s not rice. Usually eat it with seasoned chicken and veggies. I like regular cauliflower but for some reason, riced cauliflower has a stronger cauliflower taste for me?

I sauté it with butter and garlic, and have made the fried “rice” someone mentioned above as well. I go through phases where I like it and others where I can’t stomach it 🤷🏻‍♀️

Sesame oil, soy sauce (or coconut aminos), fish sauce, scramble an egg and add other veggies like peas/carrots for a “fried rice”. You could also start with half rice half cauli rice. If you really want rice though, cauli rice won’t ever be as satisfying no matter what you put on it

Yeah I’ve seen that! I also prefer making it myself for health reasons

A woman I follow on Instagram “Lillie Loves Macros” has an amazing cauliflower cream sauce recipe which tastes just like garlic mashed potatoes. If I knew it off the top of my head I’d share but it’s free on her blog

I second this! She also has a casserole that’s cauliflower, rice, and broccoli. Everything I’ve made of hers is so good

Honestly I don't eat it as a normal side to a dish. I put it in tacos, stuffed peppers, "taco" lasagna, etc...where you would have rice made in the dish itself. I've also used it in an egg white scramble. I haven't found a noticeable taste difference with these substitutes.

Have you tried quinoa?

Yeah not a huge fan, plus cooking it is a pain

Have you tried Konjac?

It comes in rice, noodles and pasta. The texture is a bit different and there is an odd smell when you first open the packet but honestly I can’t tell difference when I have it with a curry or as a fried rice. I tried this because I could never get cauliflower rice to taste good and I’m not disappointed.

I switched to black wild rice. Takes longer to cook but delicious and nutritious.

OP - I love my basmati white rice too. Off late is started making a stir fry with tons of veggies , black beans and just a handful of white rice. I literally went from 1 big cup of white rice to 1/4 cup. Satisfies my cravings while keeping me full.

I use strictly cauliflower rice and here are my tips:
Cook, drain, and then dry it before eating as-is or adding sauces/ additional flavors (Drying helps quite a lot with the flavor issues)
Add other flavors like chicken stock or butter, even onions and garlic
Treat the CR as an ingredient (like the fried rice suggestion above or as a rice-salad base)
Learn to enjoy it for what it is and stop comparing it to rice OR Recognize it will never be rice, it’s just a great substitute

I’ve made it with garlic and nutritional yeast before and it was really good and cheesy! I also make it regularly mixed in 1 part normal rice 2 parts cauli rice

Cook it in a pan with no water or oils; allow it to burn a bit for flavor. Like it waaaay better that way

Cauliflower fried rice!

Any particular reason why cutting down on rice? Brown one especially is one of the healthiest carbs out there, much better than pasta, bread or potatoes.

Me and my husband were planning to start trying to have a baby from next month. With this COViD-19 situation right now we are thinking of we should wait for few more months and see if the situation gets under control. Data related to CoViD -19 in pregnant women and new burns is very limited. Plus hospital visit during pregnancy and having family around to help out may be challenging if CoViD -19 lingers longer than expected. I am 34 and hubby is 37 body clock is ticking as well - tough decision.
