It can be used under a sauce, such as a curry 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 rice is supposed to absorb liquid. Think it sounds difficult or messy? It's not! 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 dish1) 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 for 3-5 minutes. 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.Carb Count: Each cup contains 5 grams of carbohydrate, about half of which is fiber, for a net carb count of 2.5 grams and 23 calories.
