Have You Tried Cauliflower Crumbles?

It’s a wallflower no more. Cauliflower is hot.

The cruciferous veg­etable that seemed to always take a backseat to broccoli is trending. One reason: the white veggie is a perfect stand-in for white rice, potatoes, and other carbs that many people overdo.

The trick is to chop (or grate) your head of cauli­flower so finely that the pieces look almost as small as rice. Or just pick up a bag of Green Giant Fresh Cauliflower Crumbles from the supermarket’s refrigerator case.

“These time-saving, washed and chopped nuggets are recipe-ready for roasting, baking, sau­téing, mashing or steaming right in their package,” says the Green Giant Fresh website. It doesn’t get any easier.

The simplest way to prepare the crumbles: sauté in olive oil for a few minutes, until they start to brown slight­ly. Then season with a squeeze of fresh lemon and, if necessary, a pinch of salt.

Straight from the bag, each serving—about a half cup cooked—has just 20 calories, yet delivers 2 grams of fiber, 70 percent of a day’s vitamin C, 15 percent of a day’s vitamin K, 10 percent of a day’s folate, and 7 per­cent of a day’s potassium.

Odds are, you won’t stop at a half cup. But hey! It’s cauliflower, so you don’t have to.

    1. Why not just call them? The telephone number is listed at the end of the article, but here it is for your added convenience: 800-998-9996.

  1. Frozen bagged cauliflower florets have long been one of my many favorite vegetables. I don’t see the need for buying cauliflower in crumbled form. No doubt in my mind that the price of cauliflower bagged in crumbled form will probably be double the price of flash frozen cauliflower florets. It sounds like just one more new marketing tactic to me.
