Do you need substitutes for grains? Try substituting cauliflower for rice!
Lightly steam cleaned and separated organic cauliflower flowerets. It is important not to over or under steam the cauliflower. They should be cooked just enough to warm them throughout, but not soggy. Place warm flowerets in a food processer and pulse for a few seconds until the cauliflower resembles the consistency of rice. The cauliflower can be pulsed a bit longer to resemble couscous, if desired.
The riced cauliflower can be eaten as is, with a bit of seasoning, or topped with anything normally eaten over rice. The riced cauliflower can also be used as a substituted in various recipes, but use caution as the cauliflower contains water and rice absorbs water. Therefore, be sure to add the cauliflower when no additional cooking or absorption is needed.
The taste and consistency of riced cauliflower are very similar to rice with a fraction of the calories and carbohydrates!
Cauliflower is an excellent source of Vitamin C.
