If you like rice but want to avoid the extra carbs, try cauliflower rice. Check out the recipe below. The nutrition profile is a lot better than regular rice. You can also add less olive oil, if you want even less calories.
Cauliflower Rice (140 calories)
Serving Size-1 Cup.
- Protein-3 g
- Sugar-4 g
- Total Carbs- 10 g
- Dietary Fiber-3 g
- Fats-11 g
1 large head cauliflower, separated into 1-inch florets
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, finely diced
1 tsp Salt
black pepper to taste
2 tbs fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped
Juice of 1/2 lemon
- Trim the cauliflower florets, cutting away as much stem as possible. In 3 batches, break up the florets into a food processor and pulse until couscous-like.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, and stir to coat. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until the onions are golden brown at the edges and have softened, about 8 minutes. Add the cauliflower, and stir to combine. Add 1 teaspoon salt and black pepper, and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower has softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
- Spoon the cauliflower into a large serving bowl, garnish with the parsley, sprinkle with the lemon juice and season to taste with salt. Serve warm.

Hi Dave, great recipe! My fiancée introduced me to cauliflower rice when she started doing the Keto diet, she needed to find low-carb substitutions for a lot of our staple foods, and I got hooked on the stuff! Once I figured out that a lot of my digestive issues were caused by inadvertently carb-loading, I started appreciating foods like this one a lot more. I actually like cauliflower rice more than regular rice now!
I like this recipe for its simplicity, a little salt and pepper, lemon juice, parsley and onion. That’s an easy to remember and highly effective flavor profile, which is a huge plus for me as I have a tendency to get lost in the kitchen, always trying to over-season everything. My fiancée usually just runs me off and takes over the stuff I’m making before I tragically ruin the flavor.
