Love cauliflower rice? You're not alone. The trend of processing cauliflower into rice-sized pieces has taken the Internet—and now the grocery store—by storm.

The only downside of cauliflower rice is that you have to drag out the food processor and take the time to break down the veggie. Luckily, Trader Joe's has a new product that eliminates that step. Convenient? Absolutely. Delicious? Of course!

Trader Joe's new Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry is the latest addition to their freezer line-up. The cauliflower rice is seasoned with tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) and sesame oil, then mixed with green peas, red bell peppers, grilled corn, and spring onions. The result is a flavorful, umami-rich dish that tastes homemade and bursts with color. Each 1-cup serving contains just 50 calories, two grams of fat, and seven grams of carbs. Needless to say, it is a much healthier option than take-out.

To prepare the rice, you'll heat olive oil in a large skillet, add the stir-fry, and cook until warmed through, about six minutes. If you're serving it as an entrée, top with protein, such as a fried egg and sliced avocado, tofu, chicken, or shrimp. Or, leave it as-is and serve as a side.

The rice is available in a 16-oz. bag for $3. Prefer to make your own? You've still come to the right place. We have three genius ways to transform cauliflower rice: a flatbread, some cheesy tots, and "risotto" with beets.
