    I've searched through the recipe thread but can't find this so would anyone mind explaining how to do cauliflower rice for me please? Thank you.
    Oh, and, is it nice/taste vaguely like the real thing or shall I stick to 'slim rice' shirataki stuff?

    It's fine and I use shirttail as well. Just blast some cauliflower in the microwave for 1 min or so, allow to stand for a minute or so, then mash with a fork. Sounds weird but it's really ok. Have to say I prefer the shirataki but it makes a change. Fx

    I've never done this either... you grate it raw? (I usually just mash up leftover cooked cauli with a fork...).

    I whizz it raw in a food processor, that way you can use the stalks too (lazy and frugal! ;))

    I'm with Pauline on that one - I whizz my v briefly in the food processor - awesome!!!! x
  11. The best recipe that I have made with cauliflower is a Mock Fried Rice - has fooled people in the past!
    1. Cut up your raw cauliflower
    2. Blitz in food processor in batches
    3. Put all the bits in a clean kitchen cloth and squeeze to get rid of moisture - I don't always do this as sometimes the mix already feels quite dry
    4. Cut up spring onion, chilli and garlic ready
    5. Get a frying pan heated really hot - hopefully you have a good non stick one that you don't need to use any oil with
    6. Add all ingredients except the cauliflower and dryfry for a minute.
    7. Now add the cauliflower and dryfry this for a couple of minutes.
    8. Make a well and crack a few eggs in (I usually use 2 per whole cauliflower).
    9. Start mixing this all together like a fried rice making sure you get any bits that might be stuck to the bottom of the pan
    10. Add a few slugs of soy sauce (and herbs if you want) and enjoy!!

    I have tried variations of the Cauli Rice and never got it to work! Going to try this next week and will let you know how it goes - thank you!

    How are you doing?
  13. I actually had it last night again with some beef, was really nice and a good meal to fill myself up on without feeling guilty.

    I'm still doing well with my diet thanks. On a PP day today and have spinning so hoping for a good result on the scales tomorrow!

    Let me know how you find the cauliflower rice!
