Cauliflower Rice

This is the basis for the delicious cauliflower pizza dish and a great substitue for rice.  Rice is high carb and sometimes can be missed when you are having a curry dish, stir fried veggies or need to sop up some sauce.  But behold, the almighty cauliflower to the rescue!

  1. Grate the cauliflower either by hand or food processor.
  2. If you have a microwave, cook uncovered for 3 minutes.  No water is required as this method is to reduce the water content of the cauliflower.
  3. If you don’t have a microwave, gently stir fry the cauliflower in a frying pan for about 5 – 7 minutes.
  4. Use in the lovely pizza dish, or other cauliflower rice substitute dishes.
