Making Low Carb Buns With Cauliflower Rice
I’m always pinning low carb bread recipes, but these low carb buns made with cauliflower rice seem over-the-top good. These are a must try!
Now if you haven’t been watching the new healthy recipe trends of late, you may have missed all the nifty new recipes with cauliflower, all sorts and sizes and shapes of cauliflower.
Recipes with cauliflower are found in abundance on many healthy diet food blogs these days.
Even those who don’t necessarily watch carbs closely are moving more and more to all the great new cauliflower recipes going around these days. They are just that good!
Actually, people are discovering just how versatile this veggie really is. The fact that it can so easily be substituted for potatoes, rice, and other grains without adding all those unhealthy carbohydrates just adds to its value.
What’s even MORE?
It’s healthy for you “just because”! 🙂
Cauliflower is rich in vitamins and minerals. It detoxifies. It helps maintain blood pressure AND blood glucose levels, AND…. it aids in digestion. Bet you would never know it is also anti-inflammatory. Well, it’s that too!
Enough of the healthy aspects of cauliflower. How does it work as a low carb substitute for bread?
Well, I’ve made some really yummy loaded baked cauliflower (yes, that’s like loaded baked potatoes).
So seeing a bread recipe using cauliflower just makes so much sense!
The recipe here calls for riced cauliflower.
You can make cauliflower rice by pulsing cauliflower florets in your food processor until it has the consistency of rice. Granted, that will take several times of pulsing, maybe as many as 15 to 20 or even 25 pulsations.
But it’s a food processor. That’s not so much work!
If you don’t want to mess with even that much prep, Trader Joe’s sells cauliflower rice now, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see it in other stores as well now.
Processing your own food shouldn’t be a mind-blowing experience though.
Hey, use it as a reason to get yourself a new food processor!
The important message here is to make good use of cauliflower in recipes.
It’s healthy. It’s low carb, and the food you can prepare with cauliflower can be as tasty as it comes.
Making low carb bread with it just seems like icing on the cake.
Oops, maybe that’s not a good analogy? LOL
If you are thinking about purchasing a new food processor, this KitchenAid 7 Cup Food Processor is a best seller on Amazon for a reason. Click below to see this KitchenAid food processor or to see others available on Amazon. (Amazon Affiliate Link)
So we’re good now on processing your own cauliflower rice for cauliflower bread, yes? That’s good (if you said “yes”) and even if not, we’re good with the help of great stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods Markets. 🙂
