So since the whole Tim Noakes craze started, cauliflower has received an alarming amount of attention. The reason cauliflower became so trendy is because it can be used as a substitute to many high calorie carbohydrates. With a very low calorie count and the many nutritional benefits of cauliflower; things like cauli-pizza and cauli-rice emerged.
So here is my take on cauliflower rice, inspired by the South African cookbook “Low-Carb is Lekker”. It is ridiculously simple and a perfect substitute for normal rice if you’re trying to avoid carbohydrates at night (like me!).
To begin blend one head of raw cauliflower in a food processor. Blend it until it has reached a consistency similar to that of couscous.
In a pot over the stove melt 2 tablespoons butter. Then add the blended cauliflower and salt to taste. Cook for about 2 minutes, while continually stirring. Remove from the heat and cover with a lid allowing the rice to absorb the remaining heat.
It is delicious served with curry or any other dish that would normally be served with rice!
