It's rice. But cabbage.
You’d think “keto rice / cus cus, etc” only applies with cauliflower. Think laterally. Cabbages, Broccoli, lettuces, etc.

The “Riced” Keto Cabbage

In my continuing appraisal of the humble cabbage – this has been my newly acquired ritual since last few month/s.

As opposed to buying cauliflowers which are generally as expensive as its twin brother brocolli (up to $3.50 per head) – well, this would save you more money (Average price for large entire head = $1.5 to $2, sometimes as low as 49 cents at Spudshed).

  1. Spare yourself $2 for an entire head of cabbage (yes, including the outer leaves)
  2. Invest a $15 food chopper / processor (go get one @ Target).
  3. Cut into smaller pieces first before bundling them into the chopper in one handful at a time.
  4. Chop / process till fine.
  5. Done.
