I haven't used my blender but I have a cheap small food processer that I use (and just do it in batches). I would think the blender would just obliterate it - better for making cauliflower puree/mashed potatoes versus the "grains" you want to use for rice sub.

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

fresh works better but you can use frozen - have to let it thaw out and squeeze the water out before trying to grate it.

I do the shrimp fried version but don't add meat. I just grate it and fry it up with garlic and diced onion. Sometimes I add in some cooked, chopped egg.

Aww man.. I bought cabbage instead of cauliflower.
Heres a another version

Chinese Fried Rice.

Ingredients:
1/2 head raw cauliflower, (grated to make 3 1/2 cups)
3 green onions
1 clove garlic, minced or 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ginger
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
3 eggs, beaten
Olive Oil
Cooked Chicken, Beef, Pork, Shrimp, Ham, Turkey, etc.
- Any mixture, your choice.

In a wok or large flat skillet, heat enough oil to cover the bottom. Fry minced garlic (or garlic powder) with finely diced white part of onions for approximately 1 minute. Add grated cauliflower and fry for 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly. Add soy, ginger, diced green onion tops, and pre-cooked cubed meat or baby shrimp. Stir to mix well and brown a bit. Push mixture to one side of pan. Add more oil if necessary and scramble eggs in empty side of pan until done but still moist. Stir eggs into "rice" mix and remove from heat.

Serves 3-4. 5-7 carbs per serving. Stores and re-heats beautifully.

NOTE: For an additional 6 grams for the entire recipe, try adding 1/2 cup frozen green peas (about 2 minutes after adding cauliflower.) It adds great flavor and richness to the dish!

Cauliflower "Rice"


This is a method for making "rice" from cauliflower. If you haven't tried it, you must! It tastes very mild. It can be used under a sauce, such as crab imperial or chicken ala king, or as the base for a dish such as fried "rice" or a "rice" salad. It does NOT work well as a substitute for rice in casseroles where the function of the rice is to absorb liquid. Cauliflower is high in nutrients.
Prep Time: 4 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes
Ingredients:
1 head cauliflower (or however much you want)

Preparation:
To make this dish the most easily and to have it come out the best, three pieces of equipment are very helpful:

- A food processor
- A microwave
- A covered (or fairly tightly coverable) microwave-safe dish

1) Process fresh cauliflower until it is the size of rice, either using the plain steel blade or the shredder blade. Alternatively, you can shred it with a hand-held grater, or even use a knife, if you have the dexterity to chop it up VERY finely.

2) Microwave it in a covered dish. DO NOT ADD WATER. Cauliflower absorbs water like crazy, and the "granules" will become gummy. To keep it fluffy, just let the moisture in the cauliflower do its work.

-----------------------

Shrimp Fried "Rice"
2 lbs. trimmed cauliflower
4 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
3-4 cups diced, cooked meat
3 eggs
1 tsp. salt
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper



Grate the cauliflower using the medium sized holes of a grater. Grate the core too. With your hands squeeze out as much water as you can. This may not be necessary for some cauliflower as they vary in degree of wetness.

Over high heat, heat the oil in a wok or large heavy frying pan and add the garlic. Stir-fry until pale gold. Add the meat and fry until lightly browned. Break in the eggs and fry until softly scrambled. Add the grated cauliflower, sprinkle with salt and stir and fry until it’s tender-crisp, about 5-8 minutes. The length of time will depend on the cauliflower.

Stir in the green onion and pepper. Check the seasoning and serve.

How are you wanting to use your "rice"? I suppose steamed and broken or mashed cauliflower could work for some dishes.

If you are in Phase 2, you can have rice, just choose Basmati, wild or brown for lower GI rating.

I am not sure what the heck you are asking for here. You want a substitute for rice (and why?)? And if rice - are you just wanting another grain like quinoa, millet, buckwheat?
