New Rice the Cauliflower Way

Today I embarked on a new culinary adventure. I heard about using cauliflower in place of rice. I googled how to turn a head of cauliflower into rice look-alike. Many how-to’s had the same pros and cons so I picked one. Each one explained the equipment needed to get the job done. I had them all so I chose the simplest and quickest one – my food processor. After I washed and dried the cauliflower I gave it a rough chop and filled the food processor and pulsed three to five times. Voila cauliflower rice.

I then chose my next step so I decided to make mine fried rice cauliflower. About a tablespoon of oil, onions, several spices along with salt and pepper were added as I cooked it like fried rice. The onions were allowed to become a little brown without burning for added color. Looks like fried rice to me.

I heated up the last of the beef stew meat I’d cooked for other meals. OMG together they were a perfect 10. There was enough c-rice (my name for it) for two more meals.I put one in the freezer and I will have the remainder for dinner today.

A delicious salad of choice would be a great addition to the meal along with the protein of your choice. Maybe the next time for me.

Have you tried cauliflower rice? If so how did you like it? If not why not give it a try?

    • Thanks Susan for visiting my blog. I’m going to try the pizza crust and hash browns. Cauliflower is indeed good for something other than being covered up with cheese. Blessings.

    • It’s very delicious Miryam. You can chop the cauliflower and freeze it. When you want some just take it out and add the season of your choice and there you have it. A side dish in a jiffy. Blessings.
