On July 14, Rubio’s Coastal Grill will offer Cauliflower Rice in all California, Arizona and Nevada restaurants. Providing a healthy, plant-based option for guests, the new menu option aligns with Keto, Whole 30, Paleo, vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian eating preferences.
With health benefits, fewer calories and carbs compared to rice, Cauli Rice, is available for an additional $2 as a substitute for rice in any of Rubio’s bowls and burritos. It can also be ordered as a side with any entrée or kids meal.
“Rubio’s guests are incredibly food savvy and appreciate being able to order meals customized to their wellness goals,” said Rubio’s Co-Founder Ralph Rubio. “When Cauli Rice is substituted in place of rice in our California Bowl, the Cauli Rice is just 130 calories with 7 net carbs per serving. It’s an easy swap that tastes delicious with great health benefits.”
Made from riced cauliflower cooked with fresh cilantro, lime juice, lemongrass and sea salt, Rubio’s Cauli Rice is the perfect complement to Rubio’s signature Mexican flavors. Cauli rice is a functional and nutrient-dense food that contains antioxidants, such as Vitamin A and C, fiber, potassium, and calcium.
