If you want rice, basmati rice is the best as it is low GI, so it's "good carbs".

If you want "faux-rice", I've just found a recipe on the net at : It appears to be cooked cauliflower that is processed until it looks like rice.. you could try it if you like cauliflower but I'm not sure I'll be doing that anytime soon!

From memory, SUNRICE Doongara CleverRice is the lowest GI and the lowest carb....even lower than basmati and brown rice. But it is still high on the carbs....about 70g+ of carbs per 100g rice, I think?

Fiona, I am on Kate Morgan which means I can't have carbs at night for an evening I desperately needed a "rice replacement" as we eat a lot of curries etc.......and my SIL is an Atkins expert and got on me onto "cauliflower rice" as a replacement.......& it does the job.

Just chop or process raw cauliflower then steam for about 3 mins (depending on your microwave). Don't overcook, obviously, otherwise it is just cauli mush. But when the cauli has a little "bite" left in it, it is a good rice replacement........

Cauliflower is great. I also use cabbage as well, which is quite delicious. Cut up finely for "rice" or finely sliced for "spaghetti" :D
