Substituting cauliflower rice in place of Chipotle’s regular rice options will cost $2 extra.
Health-conscious customers have increasingly been gravitating toward low-carb or more plant-based alternatives, such as cauliflower rice. One serving has 4 net carbs — a fraction of the carbs in a cup of white or brown rice. The chain said the recipe is a “twist” on its traditional white rice preparation, because it uses the “same fresh cilantro and lime ingredients, and similar culinary techniques.”
Chipotle has also remodeled its menu for vegetarians with vegan or vegetarian bowls made from existing ingredients.
