Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry Review

Trader Joe's Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry

When we’re not reviewing frozen meals, the Freezer Meal Frenzy staff eats a whole lot of rice. It’s a versatile pantry staple, and it’s particularly good in stir fry. If you love rice as much as we do, but you don’t love carbs, you might want to take a look at Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry.

Real rice is loaded with carbs, but this cauliflower rice barely contains any carbs at all; there are just 7 carbs per serving. This stir fry dish is also a cinch to prepare. You don’t need to do much more than dump the bag into a skillet and stir it until it’s cooked through.

The cauliflower isn’t a perfect match for rice in taste or texture, but that isn’t really a problem. This is still a terrific base for a stir fry. Add in some protein or your favorite stir fry sauce, and you’ll have a great low-carb meal going. We think tofu or edamame would be amazing in this stir fry, but if you’re a meat lover, chicken would work as well.

How is the stir fry when eaten on its own? It’s still pretty tasty, but not quite as substantial as we like our meals to be. It isn’t overly bland, but it does feel like it’s missing something in the flavor department; just a pinch of teriyaki sauce would make a big difference. An entire bag contains just 225 calories, so it’s definitely not the kind of meal you want to eat when you’re ravenous. If you don’t want to add anything directly to the stir fry, we think it would still make a terrific side dish.

If you’re looking for a fast meal you don’t have to add anything to, Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry might not be right for you. However, if you’ve been looking for ways to cut carbs from your diet, this is definitely something that belongs in your freezer. It’s low in calories, low in carbohydrates, and will combine nicely with all kinds of ingredients.
