Cauliflower rice.

#1
I remembered from an old atkins forum I used to be on.

If you grate cauliflour and then boil it for a couple of minutes then you can use it as a rice substitute.

I used it last night in a stirfry I made with turkey breast (cut up into really small chunks), courgette made into slivers with a veg peeler (I find it looks like I get more this way) and finely shredded cabbage. Used some chinese 5 spice seasoning and threw in the cauliflower rice for the last 30 seconds. Also, if you're on 790 you could use mushrooms too.

It was yummy :D

Yeah you can. My 1st AAMW I used my Turkey quota, diced small and then skewered onto kebab sticks with mushrooms x

Hi All,

Mushrooms were in the old book, when the new book came out mushrooms were left out (don't know why), they wrote to us CDC saying mushrooms were still allowed on AAM week and 790 as part of the vegatable list.

Fuzzyduck great idea, I'll be giving a try.

thanks TTey68, also I notice your list says 3oz of poultry, according to Coleys post in the sticky above, it's 2oz. I really hope it's 3oz.

No good asking my CDC, I haven't even had the red and blue book (apparently, she's never heard of it)

1 more thing about the cauli rice. Make sure you use a muslin cloth or fine sieve to drain it, don't use a collander like i did the first time...doh!

It used to be 3oz but CHWP changed it fairly recently to 2oz, I'm afraid.
Indulge me, lol... CHWP??

Not sure who they are or what they are, but my book says 3oz and i'm quite happy and content to keep it at 3oz, has worked for many years i'm guessing. See, why fix something that isnt broke? and after all 1oz can make a whole load of difference :)

TT - the 1oz Rebel! lol

mine says 50g, which isn't quite 2oz!

Great recipe, thanks for that - have AAM next week so will give it a go:D
