BM #88 Week 2 Day 2 - 

After having chosen to highlight Cauliflower in this series, I had to get onto the 'Cauliflower Rice bandwagon', so to say. I bought the readymade cauliflower rice from the freezer section, added some spices and grated carrot for some color and steamed in the microwave.

Even if made from fresh cauliflower, I don't think it is a difficult one to handle. Just pop cauliflower florets in the food processor and steam and season it.

I have read in some reviews that oven roasting the cauliflower rice gives the best texture but takes the maximum time. Since we all know when salt is added to cauliflower and steamed, it leaves a lot of water making it soggy. So the trick is to add salt just before serving not giving enough time for the cauliflower to sweat.
