Folk, I have a major game changer on my hands. It has even caused me to blog. I have seen people write about cauliflower “rice” pilaf before…but I never really looked into it. Then the other day a girl in my fitness class said that she grates it (grate, food process, chop in a blender – any work) and then steams it and uses it as rice. Hearing the details sold me.
I steamed it in the microwave and then topped it with black beans, cheese, salsa and sour cream. Next time I might go crazy and add a fried egg.
The options here are endless. Endless. Next up, stir fry. And after that I want to try the pilaf version I had seen mention of on twitter and FB. I am assuming this means just pan sauteing the grated cauliflower in butter or oil with spices. At least that is my plan. I guess I could look into an official recipe, but I doubt I will.
By the way – a cup and a half of steamed cauliflower….132 calories. That means that bowl you see up there with all the goodness in it…327 calories. Bam. Sorry…I’m clearly excited.
