Cauliflower Rice

cr3

A simple and healthy way in incorporate vegetables into your diet without much effort. Cauliflower rice works with low-carb and paleo diets. It is an versatile vegetable. It makes a great substitute for rice, potatoes and grains.

Ingredients

  • cauliflower

Directions

1. Remove stem and leaves. Separate florets by hand and rinse in a colander. Pat dry.

2. I cut the florets smaller than usual because I like an even grain of rice. Add to a food processor or use a hand grate to create your rice.

3. Eat raw or simmer in a pan with olive oil, seasoning, garlic and onions (optional) for 10 minutes or until desired consistency.

One head of cauliflower produces a lot of rice. I got 3 cups out of mine. I would think a basic serving is 1/2 cup.  Not only did I enjoy making this, I enjoyed eating it raw. I have this thing for raw vegetables and if I can drink them or eat them in a different textural setting it’s a marvelous accomplishment. I would also rate this kid-friendly, my soon to be 2 year old Emma thoroughly enjoyed cleaning the bowl.

Thank you for reading my blog and allowing me to share my food journal with you. There is no key to happiness, the door is always open.

      I will make you some soon. But I would load it with carbs because you deserve them.
