I know it’s taken me a little over forever to get on the Cauliflower Rice train, but I’m here, I’m on and were going for a ride. To be fair, I was still getting over the previous decade’s obsession with turning cauliflower into mashed potatoes; a dish that will forever be associated with my mother, the South Beach Diet cookbook, and a disappointment that mashed cauliflower doesn’t really taste like creamy mashed potatoes.
Now here we are, 10 years later and cauliflower is BAAAACK. I was a bit skeptical that finely ground cauliflower could actually taste like rice. Like, fool me once, shame on you. But fool me twice? I was planning for a similar experience to the infamous potato incident.
Wrong. So wrong. Finely minced cauliflower stir-fried with crispy sesame tofu, vegetables and ginger-soy sauce is so incredibly similar to traditional fried rice I had to tell BL that he was eating cauliflower, without a grain of rice in sight.
The same man who will pick out every tiny piece of kale in any dish I have ever served him was downing bowl after bowl of this cauliflower fried rice. So, picky husband approved and I’m assuming, 3-year-old toddler approved.
Besides being a nutrient-dense, flavor packed meal, the entire dish comes together in less than 30 minutes. I know this cauliflower fried rice will be a regular rotation in our house.
