Cauliflower

I used to hate cauliflower.  I still don’t like the taste of cauliflower on its own, but I’ve discovered that due to its mild nature it is good in a lot of dishes.  It’s very low in calories and full of nutrients that will make you feel good.  It’s also high in fiber which will help keep you feeling full!

If you “rice” the cauliflower (chop it up into bits the size of rice) it can be used either as a substitute or supplement to the higher calorie food.

When I first started making cauliflower dishes I would buy the whole head of cauliflower, cut it painstakingly into florets then put the florets in my Ninja and chop it up.  It was a tedious process but worked.  It’s now very common to find riced cauliflower in the freezer or produce section of the grocery store.  I am more than willing to sacrifice control over the size of the pieces to save all the cutting.

I usually buy it frozen and steam it right in the bag.  I’ll post some recipes to get you going!

One thought on “Cauliflower”

  1. Ha, I love cauliflower – it probably one of my favorite foods, next to Avacados… I will eat it raw, steamed, baked, anything… But I actually haven’t done much with making it into more complex dishes. I should try that! I am glad you enjoy it however work for you. 🙂
