I'm in love!

Oh darling readers...I am in LOVE!

I have found my dreamboat at last...let me introduce him to you...

Mr. Cauliflower Rice!!!

He is delectable, delicious, delightful. He is everything I ever wanted in a companion. Versatile, flexible, and oh so yummy!

Sorry to be a freak! but I have discovered the best food ever. I know that many of you have already tried this tasty treat, but for some reason, I never have! Thanks to Elizabeth's great blog Caveman Food, I finally decided to give it a whirl. Her food always looks SO amazing!

I ate this side dish with other scrumptious foods. I made these really fantastic spicy pork patties with tons of Pimenton de la Vera, garlic and thyme, sauteed some onions with turmeric, a little salad and my new love...HEAVENLY! Who gets this excited over cauliflower? But it tastes like rice! Only better!

My new passion has one drawback. It's kind of a pain to grate by hand. I'm afraid I will grate off my fingers in my zeal. Should I purchase a food processor with a grating attachment just so I can enjoy this delight on a regular basis?


  1. Food processors are awesome. I use it all the time - make butter, grind up nuts, even tried my hand at mayo (not bad though I put too much oil in).

  2. Hey Mark!
    You can use it to make butter? huh! Didn't know that!
    I have a mini one which is great for salsas and pestos but you can't grate.
    I might just have to get a big one too. More kitchen junk, just what I need! :)

    Have a great day!!!

  3. how do you make this rice stuff? is it just califlower?

    it looks good.

  4. Hi John,
    Yes, it is just grated cauliflower. You can follow Elizabeth's recipe or the way I made it was just grating it, then throwing it in a pan with some olive oil and spices for a little bit.

    It tastes great!

  5. I use a mini food processor to make this type of cauliflower rice. You don't need the grater, but you might not be able to do all your cauliflower at once. I just chop it up, toss it in, and pulse until it's all in little pieces. The pieces turn out looking a little more like quinoa or couscous. It's great!

  6. Hi Alisha!

    That's great to know!!! I will try it next time (maybe tonight!) in the mini processor.

    Thank you for leaving a comment. Have a great day!

  7. That is such an inventive and super healthy way to use cauliflower!

  8. Hi Carrie - isn't it? I wish I thought of it on my own. Try it, it's DIVINE.
