Cauliflower: The Versatile Substitute for High-Carb Veggies

If you'd like to lighten up on carbs without compromising the taste of dishes you love, make cauliflower "rice" your go-to substitute ingredient.

Cauliflower is among the healthiest of all vegetables, high in vitamin C, fiber, and folate. "Ricing" it simply means pulsing it in a food processor until chunks become the size of rice grains. Then use them for dishes that call for rice, pasta, and even potatoes.

The recipe below is a great substitute for traditional fried rice, and you can customize it with additional low-calorie vegetables of your choice. For a complete meal, toss in cooked shrimp or chicken cubes at the end.
