Rice Substitutes That You Need to Know

For Indonesian, rice is a staple that you need in a meal.

It’s filling, inexpensive, and a great mild-tasting addition to flavourful dishes. However rice, or white rice especially may not be the best choice for everyone’s needs. Hence, here are some rice substitutes that you might actually need for your dietary.
  • Quinoa
Quinoa is a complete protein with a grain-like texture and taste. It’s originally a seed, but also a good source of the vital minerals magnesium and copper, which play important roles in energy metabolism and bone health.
  • Barley
It’s a grain that is still a family to wheat and rye. Once it’s cooked, it provides about the same number of calories as an equal serving of white rice. Yet, it contains a bit more protein and fibre
  • Riced Cauliflower
An excellent low-carb alternative to rice. It has a mild flavour, as well as a texture and appearance similar to that of cooked rice, with only a fraction of the calories and carbs.
  • Shirataki
It’s made from konjac root, which is native to Asia and rich in a unique fibre called glucomannan. A 3 ounce serving of shirataki doesn’t contain any calories. Also, it has many beneficials for your body, including an ability to form a protective barrier along the lining of your intestines
  • Whole-wheat couscous
It’s type of pasta that’s widely used in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. It’s made of very small pearls of flour. It’s rich in fibre and protein, a good substitute to your white rice.
