Quick and Easy Cauliflower Rice and Spiralized Stir Fry
The internet has been a buzz with all things spiraled and cauliflower rice. I’m slow to jump on some bandwagons, I admit. But the cauliflower rice had me intrigued, but I had never purchased any and didn’t think about making my own. And well, I had been spiraling, but every time I went to use my hand cranking one, it moved all over the counter and I ended up with a mess!
Quick and Easy Cauliflower Rice
And then I was sent a The Ninja® Intelli-Sense™ System with Auto-Spiralizer™. Game changer! I’ve always been a huge fan of all things Ninja (and Shark), and this is one of them. The base allows for multiple attachments capable of different blending actions.
I cleaned my head of cauliflower, broke off sections and into the Ninja it went. In just a few seconds and a few pulses with the 64 oz. Precision Processor™ Bowl, and I’ve got amazing quick and easy Cauliflower Rice.
It was easy to pour right into a pan with a little oil and salt and pepper and sauté for a few minutes. The cleanup was breeze, too.
The Auto-Spiralizer made getting vegetables into small pieces for stir fry a piece of cake.
We peeled the carrots, cut off the ends, used the “spaghetti blade” and had spiraled carrots in no time at all.
Admittedly, the carrots were a little harder to spiralize than the zucchini, but that was super fast and came out perfectly.
All of the vegetables went into a skillet with already cooked chicken along with some mushrooms, water chestnuts and bamboo shoots. We added a little stir fry sauce and cooked them all up. Everything went on top of the cauliflower rice, and dinner was served.
Most of us devoured our meal. Some of the kids met it with reservation, but I’ll take it. Especially for how easy it was to make.
I use my Ninja every morning to make a smoothie. And some nights, a margarita pitcher is easily blended up on the pitcher vessel. I like that I’ve got quite a few appliances now in one Ninja!

I want the spiralizer!!! I would use this all the time.
It’s so handy and so easy to use! I won’t crank ever again!
The auto spiralizer is a brilliant idea! This would make my life so much easier, no more hand cranked spiralizer.
Mine made an immediate trip to the trashcan after this one. And there is less of that middle piece with this, too!
yummmmmm on those spiralized carrots. The texture makes it more yummy.
They were just the right texture.
