How to Make Caulirice

This is a recipe for a faux rice or rice substitute made from cauliflower. It is easy to make and really does have the texture of rice. I did find it does not absorb moisture like rice but actually adds to the moisture in a recipe, so reduce if you can. I tried it in stuffed peppers and could not taste the cauliflower at all.


1 head cauliflower

Remove flowerettes from head of cauliflower. Clean and trim. Place them in a food processor and using the grating attachment shred like you are shredding cheese. Place grated cauliflower into a microwave safe dish. Add 1/4 inch water and microwave 3 minutes. Stir and continue cooking in intervals until done. Cool. Squeeze the moisture out with paper towels and add to your favorite rice recipe.
