When is rice not really rice? When it’s made from cauliflower as in this recipe I found.

I’ve been trying to cut down on the carbs a bit which seems more difficult in winter, plus also get a few more veges in to me. I found this recipe for Cauliflower Rice and had to give it a go.

This simple version is just made with a whole cauliflower and a brown onion cooked in some olive oil and seasoned. I can’t say that cauliflower is one of my favourite vegetables but I quite liked this version as an accompaniment to some chicken skewers.

Two simple ingredients plus a little olive oil and seasoning and you end up with a healthy accompaniment to any meal.

You can season or flavour this dish any way you wish – just as with normal rice. I’ve put step by step instructions on my RecipeYum page if you’d like to give it a go. If you have leftovers, put them in a container in the freezer for another day.

Enjoy!
