Hip Cauliflower Rice Cooking Tips: 

    • These ideas are all very adaptable to meat and veggie add-ins you may already on hand like leftover taco meat, grilled chicken, or a rotisserie chicken. It’s a great way to use up any odds and ends in the fridge. Use these cauliflower rice recipes as inspiration and feel free to tweak and season to taste!
    • I like to defrost frozen rice on the counter for about 15 minutes ahead of time, and then squeeze out some of the excess water before adding it to the pan. You could also instead microwave it for 30 seconds or so. I open the package, twist the top part, and then squeeze down. The moisture goes to the top and you can pour it out.
    • Try to wait to the end of cooking to season cauliflower rice with salt. That way it’s less likely to become soggy, as salt tends to draw out moisture.
    • My bag of cauliflower rice was 8 oz. and made a pretty decent meal for 2 servings. Our recipe tester was also able to use a bit larger 12 oz. bag, and stretch it to 3 servings or 2 larger servings.
