Cauliflower, now known as a versatile vegetable – and rightfully so when it can be made into a low-carb mashed potato alternative, tortillas, rice, pizza crust and more. For this roundup though, we’re focusing on cauliflower rice.
Cauli-rice is just as versatile as a cauliflower floret and can be made into so many dishes, especially those made with traditional rice, making it perfect for Paleo eaters avoiding grains. And as we already mentioned, it contains less carbs, fitting right in on a low-carb or a keto diet.
These 14 Paleo cauliflower rice recipes are creative, flavorful, many are also vegetarian, and can be either a side dish or star of the dinner table. So pull out your food processor and shredding attachment, or buy it pre-riced to create these recipes.
