A couple of recipes (I just googled “cauliflower rice”):

As far as texture is pretty much like rice, or at least what I remember rice to be.  I prepared it by taking 1/2 a head of cauliflower and grated it on the large side of the grater.  After that I sauteed it in a little olive oil, 5-6 min or so.  I’ve seen other ways of making it, boiling it, microwave, etc. but I thought that may be a little mushy.

There was a good CF Journal video posted Monday that got me thinking about it. “Prepping for the Week” I believe was the title.

Like Metric noted, there are plenty of recipes out there that can be found using Google.

Sounds nice. I sometimes eat a lot of it raw and chopped, but this sounds fun. Another nice way to eat it is to boil it in one piecie (it shouldn’t get too soft though) and pour melted butter over it (I guess you could have oil instead of the butter if you donät eat dairy).

I watched those as well. While some good ideas in there, don’t cook like he does. Cross contamination in that video/kitchen is scary. He’s touching raw chicken and then grabbing his spice bottles. YUCK! I hope he wipes down EVERY surface of that kitchen daily.

I tried this last night and am eating leftovers now.

It’s lovely, but I’ve no idea how people can claim that they couldn’t tell the difference from rice.

I’ve used this as a sub for Spanish rice in my stuffed bell peppers it’s awesome! I just brown extra lean ground turkey, season with chili, onion and garlic powder. Mix in my cauliflower rice, onions, hubby like mozzarella cheese in there too but if ur going for paleo then I leave it out. Steam some bell peppers then stuff them, put them I the oven for about 8 mins. It’s pretty darn good, simple and cheap.

Hmm, I’m not sure about that either.  I suppose if you cover your rice with something, and do the same with the cauliflower, yeah, but it’s a “great sub” type thing.

Cauliflower makes a pretty good mashed potato substitute as well.
