How to make Bacon Cauliflower Rice with Multo® by CookingPal®?

Bacon Cauliflower Rice

1. Prepare cauliflower.

The most common type is white cauliflower. You can gauge its freshness by its bright white color, making sure it has no dark spots. You can also find orange, green, and purple cauliflower that cook similarly and can be used the same way. 

There is also Romanesco cauliflower which is green and resembles broccoli in look and taste. It can also be used in this recipe, but may result in a slightly different flavor. 

2. Sauté bacon.

Bacon is used in this recipe to give a salty-sweet flavor to the cauliflower rice. It also adds some crunch to the final taste. Bacon can be substituted with pancetta and prosciutto. Both will give similar flavors, but their textures and consistencies are different. Prosciutto is a thinly-sliced meat that almost disintegrates when cooked, whereas pancetta is thicker like small pieces of ham. 

3. Prepare other vegetables.

This recipe adds courgettes and mushrooms to the cauliflower fried rice mixture, but there are other vegetables you could use in their place. Add carrots, frozen peas, peppers, corn, onions, or peapods based on your preference. If you choose to substitute the vegetables called for in this recipe, prepare and add equivalent amounts of the replacement vegetables at the same time as you would add the courgettes and mushrooms. Feel free to add other vegetables in addition to the ones used in the recipe as well!

Tips and Tricks

  • What is cauliflower rice? Is it good for health?

    Cauliflower fried rice is finely chopped fresh cauliflower that, when cooked, looks similar to rice. It can be used in place of white rice, brown rice, or any other similar grain in different recipes. Since cauliflower is a naturally gluten-free vegetable, this dish is suitable for those following gluten-free diets. It can also be prepared for vegetarian and vegan diets with a few alterations (e.g. no bacon, vegan cream cheese). It is also filled with essential nutrients such as vitamin B, fiber, and antioxidants.

  • How can I store cauliflower rice? Can it be made ahead of time and frozen until I need to use it? 

    Any leftovers of this dish can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days in a well-sealed container. Cauliflower can also be diced into its rice consistency ahead of time and stored in the freezer until ready to use. Riced cauliflower can stay in the freezer for 4-6 months in a freezer safe bag or container. 

  • What spices/ingredients can be used to make cauliflower rice taste good?

    Like any other vegetable, cauliflower fried rice can be flavored with different ingredients. This recipe calls for parsley, salt, and pepper, but there are other spices that would work as well. Fresh basil and thyme, garlic, and red pepper flakes are other common ingredients that would add yummy flavor to this dish. For a more interesting taste, try adding chili powder, fennel seed, or turmeric. You could also add fresh scallions or mix in a tablespoon of butter.

Creamy, salty, and packed with flavor, this cauliflower rice dish is an easy recipe to make as a main dish or as a side to serve with your favorite protein. Bacon and added vegetables give this dish extra nutrients and crunch. Naturally gluten-free and rich in essential vitamins and minerals, this is a healthy weeknight meal that takes less than an hour to make.
