This makes the best mock fried rice! I also make it this way for soups...like chicken "rice" soup or Stuffed Pepper Soup. Another way I use cauliflower is to thicken soups. Cook the cauliflower separately and then puree in a blender. It makes a creamy addition to any stew! Even my DH was fooled by it---shhhh! Don't tell him!
I make it all the time, saves so many calories of empty carbs from rice.
I flavour it to suit the dish, adding turmeric gives a great colour.
One word of advice though... making egg-fried-rice with it? BLURGH did not work!!

I just stumbled onto this via Skinnytaste's blog. I had not heard of it until now. I searched for it online and found another website that described it. It is just cauliflower that has been chopped up in your food processor. Apparently you can substitute it for rice in any recipe, where the rice does not need to absorb liquid. I think it is a great way to get your veggies in and I will be trying it soon!
