Cauliflower 'Rice'

Having seen lots of blog posts and mentions in books about cauliflower used as a substitute for rice, we sought out info on how to do so.  Most seemed to involve a microwave... which we don't have.  So, we decided to give it a go 'our way' and here's how we did it.

The Cauliflower was separated into florets.

Placing the florets into our blended, they were pulse-whizzed...

...until the cauliflower resembled breadcrumbs.

Putting the cauli crumbs in a small skillet, a couple of tablespoons of hot water were added before the lid was put on and the cauli crumb was cooked/steamed on a medium heat for 3 minutes.

After this time, we checked the cauli crumb was cooked through.

The cauliflower 'rice' was ready to serve with a chicken curry and made a great low carb, low calorie and speedy accompaniment for the spicy dish.
