How to 23: Make Cauliflower "Rice"

Or: how to turn this...


...into this!
It's quicker than cooking up a pot of rice, can be eaten raw or heated and is extremely easy. Need any more reasons to try it?- Well, it's a lower- calorie, lower- carb alternative to rice and it makes an interesting accompaniment to a raw meal. If you eat it raw it does taste like raw cauliflower, but then I rather like that taste, don't you?


1: Wash your cauliflower and break into florets.

2: You can grate it by hand although the result will not be so even.

3: For best results, use a food processor to break down the florets into small, rice-like pieces...

4: ...and there you have it! Gently steam or serve raw. Great with a sauce or sprinkled wth soy sauce. I tried it with a raw curry sauce on top, accompanied by vegetable sticks.

  4. I still haven't got round to trying cauliflower rice, though it's been on the the list for ages! I remember seeing Jamie Oliver making a veggie korma with cauliflower rice on his 30 minute meal programme, which was a refreshing change from his meat & dairy heavy dishes ;)
    I love your close up shot of the rice. It's amazing how much it resembles regular rice!
