Cauliflower no longer is a strange, mushy white vegetable, smothered in a creamy or cheesy sauce. It is now a staple food in homes and in restaurants, often taking the place of meat, flour or rice.
Cauliflower has grown so popular that a gadget was created to make cooking the crucifer easier. The new Veggie Ricer from Lékué turns cauliflower or its cousin, broccoli, into rice for nutritious, tasty pizza dough or nutrient-packed rice bowls or salads.
"Cooks use the new Veggie Ricer to lighten up their favorite comfort foods," says Lékué USA Marketing Director, Tara Steffen. “We’re finding that it is helping people change behaviors. The ricer grinds veggies into a bowl of low-carb rice that can be used in recipes as a healthy exchange for high-carb long or short-grain rice or pasta. It’s a simple change but it makes a difference."
