American restaurant chain Pei Wei added a healthier option to the steamed rice or fried rice question.

You can now swap rice in your rice or noodle bowl for cauliflower rice, cauliflower fried rice or zoodles (zucchini noodles).

Pei Wei has decided to add this option to their menu as part of its ‘Clean Label initiative.’

They are also offering a new bowl featuring the new veggie called the Cauli FlowerChild Bowl. Fresh cauliflower rice with white meat chicken, carrots, red bell peppers, snap peas, onions, scallions and ginger with a Tamarind and Chile Soy glaze, garnished with fresh-cut Asian slaw.

“We are all about offering lighter, customizable options without sacrificing on flavor and that’s exactly what the cauliflower rice and zoodles substitute offer,” said Brandon Solano, chief marketing & digital officer at Pei Wei. “Cauliflower and zucchini substitutions have been at the forefront of the veggie-forward trend, so we know that our guests are going to love these delicious, healthier alternatives.”
