    Any ideas? I'm making a lamb rogan josh tonight. I was probably going to end up doing some wedges to go with it but just wondered what other people use as a substitute for rice?

    Grate cauliflower to the consistency of rice then microwave in a covered dish with no water. As near as dammit to rice :)

    I used to do it all the time when low-carbing and it carries over well to SW. Becky (wannabeminime) was asking about it a while ago.

    Grate some cauliflower (or blitz it in the blender to the consistency of rice) then microwave in a covered dish for about 5 mins (or until done to the firmness you prefer). No water required as it will go sloppy.

    Tried the grated cauli last night - was fab! Made me feel like I was eating rice and I don't think anyone even noticed I wasn't having rice! Thanks for the tip - it was so easy to make.
