I've recently rediscovered cauliflower 'rice'. If you haven't heard of it before it's basically just cauliflower made to resemble rice with the use of a food processor. The first time I tried it was when I was doing the 5:2 as it was a low calorie substitute for rice. I can't say that I particularly enjoyed it at the time but when I heard lots of talk about it again from people following the Paleo diet I thought I should give it another shot.
This time I have added it to stir fries and salads where there are lots of other flavours going on and I must say that so far I love it!
This dish is so tasty and can be eaten warm or assembled with cold vegetables, 'rice' and chicken that have been cooked previously (a bit like a cous cous salad).
