Cooking with Cauliflower-Part 2

I'm too amazed with the results to wait until tomorrow to tell you about it! Cauliflower, as a replacement for fried rice, is incredible! It tasted exactly like fried rice, with minimally different texture, and had the added bonus of tasting fresh and delicious! I highly recommend it!

To start, I grated the head of cauliflower on a cheese grater (I wasn't convinced that my blender/food processor would do the trick). I then heated the oil in a frying pan for 2-3 minutes and added the onion for an additional 5 minutes, before adding in the cauliflower. The cauliflower took a solid 10 minutes to soften.

Tomorrow I will try making the cauliflower pizza crust. Now that I know what cauliflower is capable of, I have full faith that the crust will be amazing!

If you missed it in my previous post, here is the recipe (www.damyhealth.com) I followed. Note: I did not end up using the salt and it didn't need it at all. The onion and olive oil provided ample flavour.

Ingredients:
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Medium Onion, Diced
  • 1 Head Cauliflower, trimmed and coarsely chopped
  • ¼ Tsp Sea Salt
Directions:
  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Sauté onion over medium heat for 10 minutes, until soft.
  3. Meanwhile, place cauliflower in a food processor with the “S” blade and process until the texture of rice. (TIP: if you do not have a food processor do not fret, you can simply use a cheese grater to grate the cauliflower into rice. Works awesome!!
  4. Add cauliflower to skillet, cover and cook 5-10 minutes, until soft, then add salt.

Do you have a cauliflower recipe to share? If so, please share in the comments. 

Happy cooking!

PS-I also tried making (with my husband) Quinoa PIzza Bites from www.missbefit.tv. They taste great, but could use some tweaking to help them stay together better. I'll work on them later this week and post more once I've perfected them.
