Disappointing but worth a try
We just ate the above product for the first time. We have made fresh cauliflower rice ourselves several times but were keen to try ready-made. On the positive side, it has a long store-cupboard life (2 years); and it is 100% cauliflower, and no preservatives. The fat, salt, calories etc., content is good (zero saturated fat) and it takes 2 minutes to heat (microwave or hob). So far so good. On the negative side, we both found the texture, colour and taste disappointing. It would be unrealistic to expect a prepared item to equal freshly prepared, but we actually found the taste a little unpleasant. We won’t purchase again, but it is worth giving it a try for the healthy content, long storage, and utter convenience of preparation.
This is not what cauliflower rice should taste like! Terrible smell and taste and had to throw 3 bags away unfortunately.
Awful smell, great taste!
Does not smell great but I quite like the texture and taste. As a West African, who eats a lot of rice, this a great alternative on my quest to shed a few pounds!
Cauli foul rice
I normally make my own cauliflower rice but i saw this and thought it would be a good addition to my store cupboard. Alas, I am mistaken. The product does indeed smell "rank" as another reviewer noted. It also tastes disgusting. I was thinking, perhaps this was just from a bad batch, but judging by some of the other reviews rancid is what you get. Shame.
Afraid I'm just saying the same as most others rev
Afraid I'm just saying the same as most others reviewing this item. Tesco's frozen Cauli Rice is great, this stuff, however, is rank and expensive. Shame.
I buy the frozen bags of cauliflower rice and love it. I thought this would be a good idea to keep in cupboard. It's revolting. Very bitter and smells dreadful. It's also very expensive.
Nice if fried, but BEWARE microwaving.
First time I cooked this I fried it lightly in a wok, and was pleased with it. The second time I was short of time, so cooked in the microwave, as per instructions, and it was horrible. Definitely only sauté it as the microwave makes it smell and taste awful!
Absolutely disgusting. Inedible. Even for a greedy

Great - but not 'for the Tesco winter'
This is a super substitute for carb-soaked rice. Fried with some mushrooms and onion flavoured with soya sauce - a meal in itself. But......................... Here on a rock in the middle of the Irish Sea it is no longer available as, according to the assistant I spoke to, it's 'summer' only'. What????????? Come on Tesco. This is super healthy and great for dieters and diabetics. You do have consumers who live outside the M25, you know!
Great healthy product
Great product with long shelf life so always handy to have a few packets. If you like cauliflower you’ll love this. A very healthy alternative to rice and when used in a dish with sauce, does not alter the flavour at all.
