Lunds & Byerlys Mediterranean Riced Cauliflower

The Freezer Meal Frenzy staffers are big fans of Mediterranean cuisine. From falafel to shakshuka, there’s a wide range of dishes we enjoy. When we saw the Lunds & Byerlys Mediterranean Riced Cauliflower — a veggie-based dish in a Mediterranean-style sauce — we knew we had to check it out.

“Hey, wait a minute!” you’re saying. “What the heck is a Lunds & Byerlys?” If you’re not in Minnesota, you probably won’t recognize the name of this upscale grocery chain. Their tasty frozen products are exclusively available at their Minnesota supermarkets. If you’re in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, we strongly recommend checking it out.

As for the cauliflower rice, it’s extremely easy to prepare. All you have to do is toss it in a heated pan with some oil and give it the occasional stir. It basically cooks itself! In six to eight minutes, you’ll have a steaming hot bowl of riced veggies ready to eat.

At times, we find the flavor of cauliflower to be overwhelming, but here, it was the taste of tomato that stood out. In fact, all we could really taste was tomato sauce. It didn’t matter if we were eating a bite of cauliflower or munching on some peppers; tomato was what we tasted. The mild-tasting sauce was perfectly pleasant, but we would have preferred a little more flavor variety.

According to Lunds & Byerly’s, there are three servings here. That might be true if you’re serving it as a side dish, but it won’t serve more than one person if you’re trying to make a meal. Luckily, it would be easy to bulk this up with red lentils, chickpeas, or the protein of your choice.

Lunds & Byerlys Mediterranean Riced Cauliflower didn’t blow us away, but it’s an interesting take on cauliflower rice. If you’ve been looking for ways to cut carbs, and you happen to be a big fan of tomatoes, you might want to give this a closer look. If you’re not much of a tomato enthusiast, or if you’re not in Minnesota, you’ll want to check out some of the other frozen riced cauliflower dishes instead.
