This isn’t really a recipe, per se, but a technique. In low carb and gluten free circles, making rice from cauliflower has been done forever. I truly doubt that this will be new for anyone but I decided to post about it just in case there’s one lonely person that’s never heard of this before.
Doesn’t this rice look good? It’s made from cauliflower and it’s so very versatile. Cauliflower is very low in calories and carbs with a very mild taste that can mimic several things. It can also be mashed like potatoes very successfully.
I have heard of people making this with the s blade on their food processor but I have never been successful with this technique. I tend to pulverize it into nothingness. I prefer to grate it by running it through the grater blade on my food processor; however, I know many people that use a hand grater.
I like to grate a whole head at one time and then put in a covered bowl in the fridge so I can grab what I need whenever I need it. I truly use this as rice and have found it to behave extremely similarly to the real thing. If it’s raw (like in a rice salad) my hubby won’t touch it but if you cook it, he will willingly eat it and agree that he can’t really tell a difference … and he eats a lot of rice.
Now look at this super yummy fried cauliflower rice. It totally tastes like the real deal. All I do is saute the cauliflower and frozen veggies in butter and then toss in an egg. Salt, pepper and you’re done!
If butter’s not your thing then just use earth balance spread or any mild oil for sauteing.
This dish is super easy and super tasty. Fast, healthy, simple and good for you. What more can you ask for?
