This afternoon I turned a couple heads of cauliflower into rice! Not as cool as water into wine, but I'll take it.
I've had this on my mind for a long while; a recent Food Babe post with a simple recipe convinced me it's high time I got to it. Cauliflower is an irregular part of my daily vegetable medley. It's one of those vegetables I know I should consume, and I do, but I've been in search of something to convince my taste buds I like it more. Seems to me making rice from cauliflower would be the ticket. Based on this first attempt, it is.
Of course I did a couple of things wrong, beginning with forgetting to read the recipe before my grocery store run. Thinking I had lemons at home, but only having limes, guess which is included in the cauliflower rice? Happily it's not a primary component. Trying to stuff two heads of cauliflower florets into my big food processor didn't work, either. Only re-reading Food Babe's recipe did I realize it called for one head!
Both heads were converted to rice, handled in two batches in the machine. I made it all work.
I should have taken photos in my messy kitchen. When I'm cutting vegetables, and using the food processor, while preparing other food for the week, the place is a shambles. Probably would have been more exciting than these two stock pics. Of course, we all know what cauliflower looks like.
Here's the important thing: the finished product tastes great! I'm looking forward to happily including more cauliflower in my daily diet. Thanks, Food Babe.
