Store-Bought Cauliflower Rice Is The Easy Way To Bulk Up Your Burgers

0 18

To make the method as easy as possible, opt for store-bought cauliflower rice; making riced cauliflower from scratch can be quite the involved process, especially if you don’t have a food processor. To save you a ton of time and energy, the frozen stuff will do just fine — if not better, in this case. Given the fact that it has a milder taste than fresh cauliflower, frozen cauliflower rice is also even more likely to go unnoticed in your burgers, making it the ideal choice for a sneaky veggie upgrade.

However, you won’t want to mix it in while it’s frozen. Before preparing your ground beef, allow the cauliflower to defrost, then remove any excess liquid from the batch. While the finely grated bits of cauliflower will add extra moisture to your meat, too much moisture may prevent your patties from holding their shape.

When the cauliflower rice is sufficiently defrosted and dried, you can simply pour it into your raw ground beef, along with any other herbs, seasonings, or mix-ins you’re using. As Chef Ming Tsai demonstrates in a TikTok video, chopped onions are also a great accompaniment to the cauliflower if you’re hoping to veg up your burgers. Once you’ve combined all your ingredients, use your hands to mix them into the meat, then shape the mixture into patties. Just pop ’em on the grill and you’ll have hearty, healthy burgers that even the most vegetable-averse eater couldn’t turn down.
