    One Happy Woman's Note:

    Or: How I got my nephew to eat cauliflower! This is developed from the cauliflower confetti rice recipe that I posted that under a former s/n I can't access - it is low-carb/diabetic diet friendly and fooled an entire dinner party last week - they swore they were eating rice. It's great with grilled meats and is easily adapted into a main course casserole. You can take this in any direction you like by just changing the spices: East Indian, Greek ... you may also add garbanzo beans and a little smoked Spanish paprika. It's even good cold. As the second reviewer said, it makes a huge batch: I changed the yield/number of servings to reflect that a little more accurately. And the reviewer who made fritters out of the leftovers? GENIUS.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Grate or process the head of cauliflower to the texture of rice (I pulse it in the food processor in two or three batches).
    2. 2
      Chop the garlic, onions, peppers, zucchini and celery. You can do all of this in the food processor.
    3. 3
      Heat the oil in a large saute pan.
    4. 4
      Saute the vegetables together until heated through.
    5. 5
      Add stock and lower the heat, stirring often.
    6. 6
      When cauliflower starts to soften, add the tomato paste and spices and cook over low heat until the texture of cooked rice.
    7. 7
      Adjust seasonings to taste.
    8. 8
      Add more stock or broth as neecessary as the vegetables cook to maintain the rice texture.
    9. 9
      This can be made ahead and it freezes well.
    10. 10
      You may add cooked chicken or sausage or cheese to this to make a one-dish meal.

      This was GREAT! I probably processed my cauli a little too much it ended up like couscous. It was nice and spicy, and tasted like spanish rice without all the carbs! And it made a huge batch! We're still working on it... next time I'll try freezing some of the leftovers.
