Warm and comforting, this keto buttery garlic rice is the perfect side to fill out your table. Even better, although it tastes like a grain, it's actually a vegetable, making it a dish you feel great about serving your entire family.
Actually, I love to double or triple this recipe and then make different keto cauliflower rice bowls. In fact, I'll often throw a serving of this rice in an individual container and then put it in the freezer as part of my meal prep. Then, when we cook something like our InstaPot Pot Roast, I'll take the leftovers and put them on top of my already prepped keto buttery garlic rice. It's a great way to create some variety in your weekly keto meal plan.
One thing I love about this keto recipe is that it only takes four ingredients to make. You dump them in the rice cooker and turn it on. Then, if you remember to, stir halfway through to incorporate all the melted butter and seasonings.
But, if you're forgetful or get distracted, you can actually skip stirring halfway through and just stir it all together at the end. I can't tell you how many times I got distracted while making this keto buttery garlic rice and forgot all about it. It always turns out beautifully.
