Finished Sushi with Cauliflower Rice

Finished Sushi with Cauliflower Rice

 

I really love sushi and was psyched to figure out how to make sushi rice from cauliflower to fit the keto diet and low-carb lifestyle. It turned out fantastic! The cauliflower rice rolled well, the texture was perfect, and the favor was indistinguishable from sushi rice. Topped with a Sriracha sauce mix and served with wasabi, ginger, and soy sauce.

Slice the ugly ends off, then cut down the middle. Continue cutting from the middles until you get the pieces sliced. You need a very sharp knife!
