Creative Veggie Rice



Prep time





  • 1 cup cooked cauliflower, broccoli and carrot vegetable rice.

  • Salt to taste

  • 1 teaspoons butter, margarine or olive oil


  • IDDSI Level 5 Minced & Moist
  • Add vegetables to a pot of boiling water, or a microwave steamer, and cook until soft. Drain cooked vegetable rice into a strainer, place back into the saucepan, add butter/margarine or olive oil, and mash with a mashing tool.
  • Testing IDDSI Level 5: Check the vegetable rice using the fork test. The pieces should be no larger than 4mm and should pass through the tines of a fork.
  • Serving: Plating tip: place a scone cutter on a plate and fill to the top with the vegetable rice. Remove the
    scone cutter carefully.
