How to Make Rice From Vegetables (Inspiralized Rice!)

How to Make Spiralized Rice by Inspiralized One of the most exciting parts of being a food blogger, for me at least, is seeing readers recreate my dishes. Some make the recipes exactly as I write them and some readers alter them to either fit their preferences. Sometimes, I even look at a recreated recipe and think, “Oh – I bet that tastes better!”

My favorite recipe to see “recreated” is my Inspiralized Rice. I’ve posted a few recipes using the rice. First, it was the risotto with asparagus and peas. Since then, I’ve done stuffed peppers, teriyaki chicken and broccoli, spanish rice with ham and a few others. 


For the record, I look at 90% of pictures tagged @Inspiralized, #Inspiralized or #GetInspiralized on Instagram. The other 10% is from not being able to see a picture if the user is private (which many of you are!) I’ll see an alert pop up and I’ll get all giddy to see it and then my Instagram will prompt me “Cannot load,” because they are private.

I’m always humbled that so many people (at least as I can see on Instagram) have attempted my recipes. Thank you for all of your support, enthusiasm and kindness!  For those of you who haven’t tried the rice just yet, here’s a video on how to do it!

Also, there’s more information in my eBook, now available as a PDF.

HI Ali, I had never heard of a spiralizer until my daughter told me about your blog. So I am now a follower. Cheers to you! Charlotte
Welcome! Glad to have you part of the community :)

Hi, I tried spiraling butternut squash last night to make the rice, but it didn't work so well. I cut the squash into smaller, manageable pieces, but they just collapsed on the spiralizer. Also, I wasn't sure how to handle the part with the hole where the seeds had been. Do you have some helpful tips or perhaps a video on spiraling a butternut squash? Thanks!

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
