  3. Serving suggestion.

    Meatballs with Tomato Sauce served with Amazing Cauliflower Rice.


This is an idea as much as it's a recipe. It is rather different to other recipes for "cauliflower rice" on recipe community and Internet sites.

My aim was to produce a low carb steamed rice alternative, without a boiled cauliflower taste.

Make your own adjustments or try your own twists. Please share any good ideas!

Variation 1: Add a little vegetable stock paste instead of salt - this might change the colour of the "rice" but is a tasty option.

Variation 2: Fry some fennel or cumin seeds with the shallot to ad some exotic character.

Variation 3: Over to you!

Half quantities: Suggest 5 mins cooking time as for the full recipe.

Leftovers: Amazing Cauliflower Rice keeps for several days in the fridge and reheats well.
