Commercially prepared dehydrated cauliflower rice and broccoli rice are now available! These convenient packs are perfect for stocking in the pantry.
Are you a fan of convenience foods? Do you miss stocking up on easy to make packaged foods like instant rice?
If this sounds like you, take a look at the new dry riced cauliflower and riced broccoli made by Keto and Co Each packets contains 100% air dried vegetables!
The great thing about the dehydrated cauliflower rice and broccoli rice is that they stay fresh in the package for up to 24 months. So, you won't have to worry spoilage if you don't cook it right away.
I can't tell you how many times I've bought fresh produce only for it to spoil in the refrigerator before I got around to cooking it. As a busy working mom and blogger, I don't always have a lot of time for cooking.
You may think that I cook a lot since I post so many recipes. But, I typically only batch cook on the weekends when I have more time.
That's why I love the idea of buying dehydrated cauliflower rice to stock in the pantry. It's great to have on hand for a quick side dish for dinner.
With the dry riced cauliflower, I'll always have the main ingredient handy for making cauliflower fried rice. And, it only takes about 15 minutes to prepare.
You simply dump the dried cauliflower in a pan with oil and water. Then, you simmer after reaching a boil until all the water has been absorbed.
It's the same procedure for preparing the dry riced broccoli. Both are fantastic substitute for high carb rice and can be enjoyed served with butter, salt and pepper. Or, you can use them as an ingredient in your favorite recipe that calls for either riced cauliflower or broccoli.
If you need some ideas for using the dehydrated cauliflower rice, check out the recipe collection here. The riced broccoli is perfect for adding into one of the many low carb chicken casserole recipes.
Keto and Co also sells other low carb keto products so give their website a look. You'll find shakes, coconut oil, MCT oil, and a few other low carb staples.

Wow interesting, wonder if this could be used in a low carb pizza crust?
I don't see why not!
I would be curious if you grind up like flour how it would be for cauliflower pizza:)
You wouldn't need to grind it up. You just rehydrate and use like that for a cauliflower crust.
Could you post a pizza crust recipe starting from dehydrated? I just re-started low carb last week, and squeezing the water from frozen cauliflower rice is more work than I'd like to do!
It's basically the same, but with dehydrated, you will need to add some water to equal the fresh and frozen riced cauliflower.
Lisa and Connie, I was actually wondering the same thing. Could the dehydrated product be made into a fine flour in the blender (NOT re-hydrated by water and cooking) and then the flour made into a pizza dough or other bread type product, how would that bake out. Or would the carbs per cup be way too high because it's concentrated into less volume?
It would be a bit concentrated, but it's an interesting thought. I don't see why it wouldn't work.
