How to Make Spiralized Rice
Spiralized rice is simply, rice made from spiralized vegetables. This “spiralized rice” can be used in place of regular rice and grains in your favorite originals. For example, you can make fried “sweet potato” rice and pesto “turnip” rice. The possibilities are endless – and delicious!

Which Spiralized Vegetables Can be “Riced”

All vegetables can be “riced” except for cucumbers – their water content is just too high. Fruits can’t be “riced” either.

How to Make Spiralized Rice

1. Place your spiralized vegetables into a food processor.

How to Cook Spiralized Rice

Now that you have your spiralized rice, what do you do with it? There are a few ways you can prepare your spiralized rice dishes:

  • Have it raw (best with zucchini, daikon radish, carrot, beet)
  • Saute it (best with all vegetables)
  • Simmer it in a soup or slow cooker
  • Steam it (don’t recommend, because it easily becomes mushy)
  • Bake it (as in a casserole, frittata or dessert)

  1. Do you use the "rice" raw?
  2. This is great! I am looking forward to having something different than Cauliflower Rice!
  3. What food processor do you recommend? Is it better to go bigger and cheaper or smaller and cuisinart? I've never really needed one before now but I've been making several meals a week from your blog since we got a spiralizer a couple months ago and you sure use yours alot. Would it be possible to use something like a magic bullet or blender (which we already have)?
  4. Do you think that would work on the pulse setting of my Vitamix??
    • Yeah I'd like to know too please because I have a Vitamix and don't want to have to go out and buy a food processor to make the rice dishes! :)Thanks!!
