Rice-like Cauliflower

A mild tasting cauliflower "rice" dish that's well worth trying.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Process fresh cauliflower in a food processor using the shredder blade until it is the size of rice. Alternatively, shred it with a hand-held grater or even use a knife, if you have the dexterity to chop it up very finely.
  2. Microwave it in a covered dish. Do not add water. Cauliflower absorbs water like crazy, and the "granules" will become gummy. To keep it fluffy, just let the moisture in the cauliflower do its work.
  3. Serve with salt and pepper to taste as a replacement for rice.
  4. Note: recipe can be used under a sauce, such as crab imperial or chicken ala king or as the base for a dish such as fried "rice" or a "rice" salad. It does not work well as a substitute for rice in casseroles where the function of the rice is to absorb liquid.

Please clarify how much to microwave the cauliflower. I had no idea, and it ended up tasting awful.

Great for low carb stirfrys, or faux fried rice.

I made this last night and I couldn't get enough of it! It's absolutely wonderful! It's always good to find a recipe for a different way to make a good old favorite. I will be making this a staple in my house! Thank you!
