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!
Of course - go to for a video on how to spiralize a butternut squash!

we’re flying back to new jersey on friday and already starting to miss it here in florida ☀️ the weather’s nice, but I’ll most miss all the time spent with our family together 🙏🏼 for the past (almost) 2 years, we’ve spent a lot of time in florida with my family and that’s been the silver lining of the pandemic 🙏🏼 right now, my grandmother is here and that time is extra special. I don’t think I’d ever have the chance to be with her for this amount of time otherwise, and I am so, so grateful for it 👵🏼💓 photos by @karlakorn 📸 ...
