Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower is pretty much the best thing to hit Trader Joe’s in a long, long time. In fact, it is so good (and so popular) that I’ve had trouble getting my hands on some. It’s one of those buzzy ingredients (lovingly known as “Paleo crack”) that’s sweeping the nation. If you’re anything like me, you’ve nabbed a bag as soon as your local Trader Joe’s restocked it.
If you have a bag in your freezer you’ll probably start to wonder what, exactly, you’re supposed to do with the grainy white. The answer? Just about everything. Anything rice, couscous, and risotto can do, Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower can do just as well. And if you’re thinking, “Yeah, but will my kids eat it?” the answer is yes to that, too.
I’ve put together a luscious list of supremely awesome cauliflower rice recipes that aren’t just delicious, they’re kid-friendly, too.

Okay, to be perfectly honest, I don’t know if my kids would get on board with this one, but it looks insanely delicious and there are plenty of adventurous sushi-eating kindergartners in my daughter’s school, so I’m going out on a limb here.
