It is important to get the right texture. The key to this is how you chop your cauliflower.
Place the chopped stalks of the cauliflower in the mixing bowl first then top with the florets.
Chop at speed 4 for 20-30 seconds. Take a look and see if it is fine enough. Repeat for 5 second burts until the cauli is fine like rice.
Tip the cauli rice into the basket and add 1000 grams of water to the bowl.
Steam for 25 mins./Varoma/Speed 3
OR you can cook it directly in the mixing bowl by adding 200 grams of water and cooking for 20 mins/100C
Strain and tip into your Thermoserver where you can season it.
For simple buttered rice simply add butter and season with salt and pepper.
You can make sushi or 'Japanese' Cauli Rice by adding sushi vinegar (mirin, rice wine vinegar and sugar pre mixed). Add this mixture to taste once the rice is cooked.
Make Mexican red rice by adding 1 teaspoon of tomato paste and a Mexican spice mix during or after cooking.
Make Spanish rice by adding a few saffron threads while cooking and season with olive oil not butter. Dress with a littel orange juice if you like.
Make Indian rice by adding a teaspoon of turmeric powder before you cook it.
Make Asian themed rice by seasoning with 1 tablesooon toasted sesame seed oil and 1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce. You can also add garlic and ginger or spring onion.
Make a Middle Eastern pilaf style rice side dish by stiring through choped nuts and chopped dried fruit after cooking (pine nuts, pistachio, almonds, apricot, dates, figs, currants etc.).
