Low Carb Spanish Cauliflower Rice Recipe

Keto spanish rice is a side dish I like to make to go along with any Mexician inspired meal. It is one side dish you can meal prep ahead of time and serve thoughout the week. Enjoy it with along with lettuce wrap tacos, keto enchiladas or low carb fajita rice bowl.

How to Rice a Head of Cauliflower

head of whole cauliflower

I usually purchase cauliflower rice already pre made at the grocery store. You can find it in the produce section, usually by the boxed or bagged lettuce. You can also use frozen cauliflower rice in the recipe too.

If you want to make your own cauliflower rice, it’s easy to do and usually less expensive. Take a whole cauliflower and cut off the stem. You can use a cheese grater or a food processor to rice the cauliflower.

If using a cheese grater, first cut the cauliflower into large chunks. Then using the large hole side of a cheese grater, grate into “rice.”

To make cauliflower rice using a food processer, cut the cauliflower into large chunks. Then using the grater attachment, grate the cauliflower into “rice.”

Keto Mexician Rice Storage

Like I mentioned before, I like to double the recipe and make enough keto mexician rice to enjoy throughout the week. You can store any excess in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Or you can freeze it in a freezer safe bag for up to 3 months.

I strive to find meals that your whole family can enjoy (kids and relatives too) while you are on your keto quest. You can still have your favorite foods on the keto diet, you just have to be creative with how you make them.
