While there's nothing wrong with eating carbs (in fact, we love 'em!), we're always thrilled when our favorite comforting, carb-heavy foods can get a healthy makeover. Lately, cauliflower has been making an appearance in everything from fried rice to pizza—and, thankfully, it doesn't look like the trend will be going away anytime soon. In fact, there are two new cauliflower products from Green Giant that we have our eyes on: Cauliflower Gnocchi and Riced Cauliflower Stuffing.

Whether you're looking for a traditional cauliflower gnocchi or something with a little bit more flavor, Green Giant has you covered. Their cauliflower gnocchi will be available in two different varieties, including Original and Cauliflower & Spinach. Made with over 40 percent cauliflower, these gnocchis are free of potatoes, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. They're perfect for a healthy side dish paired with one of these six sauces or to use in this Spinach & Sausage Gnocchi. And for those of you who don't have access to a Trader Joe's, these little guys are the perfect alternative to TJ's famed cauliflower gnocchi.

With Thanksgiving around the corner, we're *even more* excited about Green Giant's Riced Cauliflower Stuffing. Nothing quite beats homemade stuffing, but it can be pretty time consuming. And when the stress of Thanksgiving hits, it can be pretty tempting to turn to boxed stuffing mixes. But those bad boys are filled with tons of sodium and preservatives, so we try to avoid them at all costs.

Thankfully, Green Giant is making the premade stuffing scene so much healthier. As a cauliflower-based alternative, their Riced Cauliflower Stuffing has fewer calories than your average stuffing, but you won't be missing the traditional flavor since it's filled with delicious Thanksgiving spices like rosemary, sage and thyme.
