I eat cauliflower often, especially cauliflower “rice”. It makes a tasty paleo side dish in lieu of rice. I have tried many ways to “rice” cauliflower, from chopping it by hand, placing it in the food processor, or grating it, with all of them proving to be a pain in the bum. Then I had remembered how my friend’s mom used to make her coleslaw. She placed rough chopped cabbage in her blender, filled it with water, and presto, she had the most perfectly chopped cabbage for slaw. Eureka! It works for cauliflower too. Very easy to do, and even easier clean up. Store some cauli “rice” in a Mason Jar for quick and healthy side dishes during the week.
Enjoy the video and take a shot of your favorite espresso (or spirit- gasp!) every time I say “so”. You’ll be buzzed by the end, I promise.
If you think this idea is pretty cool, please share.
Here is one of my recipes using the “riced” cauliflower- Lemon Couscous Pilaf.
My blender is a vitamix-prep (Himself likes smoothies), but you can use a regular blender working in smaller batches which is still faster than a hand grater and loss of fingernails- ouch. The canning funnel used in the video is this one.
