"Riced" Cauliflower

Cauliflower may not make a very good pizza crust (remember this?) but it does make one hell of a good side dish for people who are off grains or watching their carbs. (Kar, this post is for you).

All you do is take one head of cauliflower, cut it up into smaller little pieces and roast it in a fairly generous amount of olive oil and salt & pepper for about 20 minutes - or until it's browned to your liking. (When I roast vegetables, I do like them to be fairly dark). Anyway, once this is done (and the cauliflower is slightly cooled) you throw them into a food processor and PULSE away until it's almost reached the consistency of rice. It's really quite good. I recently came across a recipe that also said to toss the cauliflower with a few chopped capers. I'll bet that would be delicious.

Here's a photo of the roasted veg...

And what it looked like once I was done with it.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am "kid-free" so last night I was able to just relax on the couch - something that I haven't been able to do in far too long. In addition to being able to catch up on the Real Housewives of Orange County, I also watched the "King's Speech" - a great movie.

Talk to you soon!
