Cauliflower rice has become popular in the last few years for its ability to emulate the classic side dish without all the bloating and calories.
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 between this and normal rice.
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, then 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.
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.
