We love cauliflower rice for its low-carb versatility, but can't get over how quickly it goes bad. The pre-made fresh stuff only lasts a few days in the fridge! Sure, we could make cauliflower rice from scratch to replace our mushy bag, but it's so much more convenient to buy it pre-made. And, thanks to Costco, you'll never again have to worry about your cauli rice going bad before you can use it!
Costco is selling Nature's Earthly Choice shelf-stable cauliflower rice packets (that's right, it'll last in your pantry for months!) But, since cauliflower rice is naturally super healthy—filled with Vitamin C, Vitamin B folate, and potassium—we were worried about how the nutrient content stacked up to fresh cauliflower rice.
Expecting added salt, sugar and unhealthy fats, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the packets only have three ingredients. Aside from malic acid, which is an organic compound commonly used as a preservative, there's just cauliflower and water. Now that's a packaged food we can feel good about eating!
Here are the nutrition facts for a ½-cup serving of Nature's Earthly Choice Cauliflower Rice:
Saturated Fat: 0g
Unsaturated Fat: 0g
Added Sugar: 0g
We can't wait to get our hands on this healthy, shelf-stable rice alternative. Thankfully, Costco is selling 6-packs for $9.99—that's less than a dollar per serving! Nutritious and inexpensive, these packets are perfect for all of our favorite cauliflower rice recipes. We also love that the cauliflower isn't flavored, so we can swap it in for rice in just about any dish. We especially can't wait to try it out in Cauliflower Rice Risotto, Cucumber-Avocado Cauliflower Rice Sushi or Cauliflower Fried Rice with Steak!
