CAULIFLOWER RICE

I had been meaning to try cauliflower rice for a long time.  I know people who follow the Paleo Diet swear by it, so a few days ago I FINALLY tried it.

The verdict?  I like it.  I took a head of organic cauliflower, chopped it up, and put it in the food processor (If the head of cauliflower is large, you may have to process it in two batches).  I “pulsed” it until it resembled the texture of rice and it was done.  Simple.

When dinner time rolled around I put the stir-fry I made over the raw cauliflower rice and it was surprisingly good.  In the next few days I plan on trying to make my stand-by fried rice recipe with the cauliflower rice to see how it turns out. I don’t want the “rice” to get mushy, so I don’t plan on cooking it long at all.

Come to think of it, I think I need to share with you my fried rice recipe!  Post to come soon…

  1. I’ve seen so many interesting cauliflower recipes lately! Just came across a roasted balsamic parmesan cauliflower recipe on Pinterest. And I’m obsessed with using cauliflower as a pizza crust 🙂

  2. Interesting. I’ve never thought to eat cauliflower in this way.

  3. Hi Gretchen,

    Try the recipe for Spanish Rice in my book UNPROCESSED.

    Do you cook cauliflower before or after you chop it?

  5. I chopped it raw and have eaten it raw or lightly steamed or stir-fried (no oil).

  6. This sounds intriguing! I’ll have to try it!
