You Can Now Buy Cauliflower Ranch ‘Fries’ To Satisfy Your Cravings
All the flavor with none of the guilt!
Ahh, yet another way to prepare cauliflower! This versatile vegetable never ceases to amaze. Cauliflower can be made into gnocchi, pizza crust and even bread-like sandwich thins. Well, prepare to add another item to the list because cauliflower “fries” now exist.
Birds Eye is responsible for the healthier option of cauliflower and ranch fries, which combine cauliflower and potatoes and are dusted with ranch seasoning. They have 150 calories and 20 grams of carbs for per serving (eight pieces), whereas a small serving of fries from Wendy’s is 290 calories and 47 grams of carbs.
The faux fry was spotted on Walmart shelves and shared by The Impulsive Buy on Instagram:
