    I made this for dinner last Sunday. Everyone liked it - they asked for it again.

    Cauliflower rice

    The other thing I did was learn to make cauliflower rice, this is a great substitute for the real thing and I really don't miss the original stuff. The simplest way to make the rice is to blend some cauliflower in a blender until it breaks down into tiny grains, that can then be steamed. I add serrated coconut to the dish as this helps fluff up and add texture to the vegetable. My family are not keen on the slight odour of this new low carb rice so I have slightly adapted it to get rid of the presence of this.

    I will soon post a video of how this is done for you to follow.

    Ingredients

    1 whole cauliflower (approx 700g)
    5 tbsp of single cream
    60 grams serrated coconut
    Pinch of salt to taste

    Method


    Wash and clean cauliflower then place in blender until completely broken down into smaller grains no bigger than the size of a grain of rice.
    Steam until cooked (approx 10min) and then rinse with cold water (this will help remove trace of cauliflower taste)
    Steam again for another 5 min, rinse again with cold water.
    Warm up again in steamer
    Place in serving bowl and serrated coconut and cream, season with salt and serve with your favourite dish!


    Tip! If you prefer you can microwave the cauliflower with a few drops of water in a seal able microwavable container. Make sure your container is designed to steam veg or it could explode:)
    Cook cauliflower at each stage for 8 min, 4 min and 2 min respectively. Way less mess guys

    Myself and my family love pizza. I have seen a few cauliflower recipes online for dough but seems very difficult when you work and have 4 kids at home. Where can I get Fathead pizza crust. Is it in most supermarkets?

    The crust recipe is in the link. Super easy. Takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. I'll do that any day for a delicious homemade dinner.

    Older post, but I'm bringing old dead post back to life. Dead things back to life... Can't wait for zombie apocalypse.

    But seriously, I love making bread-like foods out of cheese and eggs.

    Cheese, beaten egg, butter, salt and pepper in small oiled glass baking dish, 350 for 25 minutes, makes a bread-like loaf.

    Beaten egg put in small buttered skillet, on med-low heat, sprinkle on lots of cheese, salt-pepper, let cook through.

    Can eat like flat bread: top with pizza toppings or any meats, veggies and/or condiments.
    Or fill with veggies, meats, and/or condiments, and fold over like a pita style sandwich.

    Love these, they're very filling!!

    Trader Joe's has a great cauliflower pizza. You can either buy the crust and build your own or buy the ready made pizza. Both are in the freezer section.
