This will be a simple quick blog. I have been eating a lot of riced cauliflower lately. People have been asking me how to make it so here goes.
1. Steam or boil cauliflower florets with a bit of sea salt, and a few cloves of garlic until soft but not mushy. You can use water or any kind of stock you like.
2. Drain cauliflower and make sure to keep the garlic.
3. Take a fork or masher and simply break the cauliflower down until it looks like rice. If you wanted to make mashed cauliflower, you would add whatever add on ingredients you like and put it into a blender.
4. Add-ons. I make this different every single time. Must haves— Tons of garlic powder, a bit of sea salt, cracked pepper. Here is where you can get creative. Do you want it creamy? Try adding some milk or chobani plain yogurt. Do you want it savory? Try adding just a bit of butter or a tbsp of hummus. You can even add in horseradish cream for a kick. Have fresh herbs? Add them? Want to add a bit of cheese? Add it. My point is make it your own. Everyone has different tastes.
It’s a great little side dish. I would never eat cauliflower before I discovered you could dress it up. Give it a try!
