Hear that? That is the sound of me jumping on the cauliflower rice band wagon. That’s right. I’ve been sucked into the recent trend. I don’t usually get sucked into food trends. Sure I like kale, but I’m not eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Love quinoa too but never in a I’m going to make everything out of quinoa way. Then along came cauliflower rice.
I’ve been hearing a lot about cauliflower this and cauliflower that. I haven’t tried the alfredo. I haven’t tried the pizza crust either. Neither one really appealed to me. Not that they didn’t sound good. I just like my alfredo with loads of cream and cheese and I like my pizza crust all kinds of doughy. But then I saw a few pins on Pinterest for cauliflower rice.
Now that is something I could totally get behind because I actually could see how cauliflower could be used as a substitute for rice.
The best part is that cauliflower rice is so easy to make. Simply cut out the core, cut the cauliflower into florets and pulse in the food processor a couple of times until it’s the size of rice. Easy peasy done.
I also kinda liked that it was a sneaky way to get Kellan to eat more vegetables. I figured the best way to do that was to cook it with his favorite: crispy chicken and curry.
It worked out so well guys. The whole family loved it. The cauliflower and curry worked so well together and the crispy chicken on top added the right amount of crunch .
I can’t wait to try other recipes using cauliflower rice. I’m thinking a fried “rice” next! Happy Monday!
