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?
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.
