Love rice but trying to reduce the amount of carbs you eat? Meet your new best friend!
Cauliflower rice is so simple to make and, when fried and added to your usual sauce, you won’t be able to tell the difference.
We actually think the subtle veggie flavour is better than usual rice – and it’s one of your 5-a-day!
- 1 cauliflower
(Serves 4 people as a side, 2 as a main)
Remove the leaves from your cauliflower.
Lay it upside down on your chopping board and remove the stalk.
Roughly chop your cauliflower.
Attach the knife blade to your food processor and add the cauliflower florets.
Whizz to a fine, breadcrumb-like consistency.
Cook your cauliflower rice in the microwave until soft. Do not add extra water, cauliflowers have a high moisture count.
If you like, you can then fry your cauliflower rice to give it a crisp finish. You could even fry it with egg for a spin on the classic egg fried rice.
Serve your cauliflower rice with your usual dishes like curry or stir a sauce or dressing through for a rice-like salad.
