Cauliflower Rice and Cauliflower Sushi
Before we start, let us quickly talk about cauliflower rice.
Cauliflower Rice is Not Rice
Despite the name, cauliflower rice is not rice. It is grated cauliflower. If you are trying to skip using rice, you do not have to worry then. Cauliflower rice is only called so probably because of how it looks. It does look a lot like rice, but it is different from it in many ways.
Cauliflower Rice is Not the Same as Sushi Rice
As we have said above, cauliflower rice is not rice. With that, you do not want to treat it as sushi rice. Cauliflower rice might look like rice, but it differs from it in many ways. It is not as sticky as rice, nor does it expand like it, to name a few.
With that, the usual sushi-zu will not work. Additionally, as you might notice later, you would need more cauliflower rice than if you will use rice.
Making or Buying Cauliflower Rice
As we have said earlier, cauliflower rice is grated cauliflower. You can use a grate, but you can also employ the help of a food processor if you want. On the other hand, you might want to buy packed cauliflower rice instead.
There are several options to get cauliflower rice. You do not have to worry about it being too much work or time-consuming. Now we got that out of the way. Let us get to know the cauliflower rice sushi recipes now!
