View Full Version : I need a substitute for cooked rice..

Any ideas would be appreciated -- I grew up eating cooked rice and was wondering if anyone found a good substitute.

we eat buckwheat groats. Buckwheat is loaded with nutrients, especially protein, and it has a nutty, earthy flavor.
I grew up in Louisiana so I miss rice. I soak wild rice from Trader Joes over night. Rince the wild rice again. I then mix it with chopped celery and green onions. I put it in the dehydrator for about 4 hours.
Hope this helps,

I use to love, love, love rice. I miss it so much.
I'm going to check my cabinets to see if I have any wild rice and if I do, I will be having it with broccoli tonight.
Ann :D :D

I don't think it would be sprouted by tonight...I usually sprout it overnight.
BUT, with broccoli, you could try putting cauliflour in a food processor and then mix it with the broccoli...slightly different taste and texture, but it might satisfy the craving you are having while you wait for your rice to sprout!

I've heard of both cauliflower and jimica minced up in a food processor as subsitutes for rice. There seems to be a preference taste was for the jimica in the reading I've done. I've not tried either yet.

While my rice is sprouting I can still make the dish using your ideas.

Why not try a glazed donut.

I use parsnips, run through the food processor and grind up (with the "s" blade) when I make rice for my nori rolls. Works for me. I actually enjoy the flavor of the parsnips over the cauliflower. If you add a handful or so of pinenuts it adds to the flavor, but not necessary. I need to hunt down a bag of wild rice I had....wonder if it will sprout? Will any wild rice sprout, as long as it's WILD rice?

Wendi I don't think so. At least, I've never seen it happen. It just splits. I think that may have been the clue that first had raw food folks look into whether wild rice gets heated in processing. Apparently it does, and there is not any REALLY wild rice readily available.
