It’s not rice, and it doesn’t taste like rice.
But it feels like rice. It seems like rice. It’s adequately rice-ish.
I love it!
All you have to do is pop some chunks of fresh, raw cauliflower into your food processor and pulse/chop until the pieces are the size of rice.
Then, steam or saute and season to taste, and you’ve got a low-calorie, low-carb alternative to the white stuff that, in my case, really only serves as a vehicle for the good stuff anyway (and it’s got a rice-y texture that’s totally different from those cauliflower mashed fauxtatoes that are sooo yesterday.)
Just think of the possible benefits for those avoiding carbs, or those looking to cut calories, the Paleo crowd, or those who just really want to up their veggie intake.
…and kids! Can’t forget about the kid-friendly factor!
Now, I can’t take credit for this idea. I found it on this real food site. But I sure as heck plan on taking credit for the Chana Masala and Veggie Korma I’m going to serve over it this weekend!
If I can wait that long.
Have you ever made cauliflower rice? What is your favorite way to work more veggies into your daily diet?
