When going to a low carb way of eating, one of the very first things to go is "rice". I love rice. It's delicious and comforting! What now?!
Cauli-Rice is a rice substitute, made out of cauliflower. When I first read about Cauli-Rice, I thought, "That's silly. It won't taste like rice!" I avoided it for the longest time, simply because I didn't believe it could be a good substitute. Many months later, I had some leftover Indian Curry, from a friend. This seemed like a good opportunity to try it. So, I did. It was great! It COMPLETELY hit the spot. What I didn't realize what that the rice is so much about the texture and to serve more as a vehicle for the "stuff" on top. Cauliflower is such a light taste, you can't taste it. You just get that pleasing rice texture, some good nutrients, a little fiber and ... you get rice back!
It's so easy to make, it's great with curries, in soups, as fried rice
, with jambalaya
, etc. Anywhere you'd use rice, you can use this! (ok, not sushi, not risotto, but ... you should get the point)
