Cauliflower can make a delicious substitute for rice! Just process cauliflower florets in the food processor at high speed until they are the consistency of rice. Watch the processing carefully so they don't become cauliflower puree. Use the "rice" in place of rice in salads or stuffings, or as a base for stir-fried meats and vegetables! Create a fantastic side dish by adding fresh herbs or other seasonings, finely chopped vegetables or dried fruits. Use raw, or saute. Get creative with seasonal produce to create a fun and tasty dish!
