So I’m pretty sure you have all heard of the various ways you can use a cauliflower. Pinterest is chock-full of ideas on how to creatively prepare cauliflower while still keeping it healthy. The cauliflower pizza bottom for example is very popular. I have yet to try that out, but what I have been eating a lot lately is riced cauliflower.
This started a few months back when I suddenly decided I wanted to eat more healthily. Cauliflower is my all time favorite food EVER and I knew I wanted to try out riced cauliflower, so I can have it as often as I want!
I first decided to buy a whole cauliflower from the grocery store and rice it with our food processor. This went very well, but…. it makes a gosh darn mess out of everything, so be prepared to clean small cauliflower particles for the next few days.
Luckily for my messy self, they also come pre-riced in family bags. My favorite way to make it is by adding mushrooms, spinach, parmesan cheese, garlic and soy sauce. I have absolutely no measurements for all these ingredients, because I just throw in as much as I like. It is very easy to adjust this recipe to your liking!
Anyway, let’s get into it…
First, here is what you need:
– Riced cauliflower
– Baby spinach
– Garlic cloves
– Parmesan cheese
– Soy sauce
– Olive oil
– A glass bowl with a lid
– A frying pan
– A spoon for stirring
First I pour a good amount of riced cauliflower in a glass bowl that has a lid. I microwave it for five minutes and keep the lid on, so that the moisture stays in the cauliflower. You can also definitely pan fry the cauliflower, but this girl is very lazy sometimes.
While the cauliflower is doing its thing in the microwave, I start cutting up the mushrooms and garlic. I love mushrooms and garlic, so I use a lot. I chop the mushrooms rather roughy and then break them into smaller pieced by hand before they go into the frying pan.
Heat up some olive oil in your frying pan and throw in the mushrooms and garlic when it’s hot. I let them fry a little on medium heat for a while, and then throw in the spinach. Now I turn the heat to low and wait until the spinach has shrunk.
Add the cauliflower to your frying pan and stir it around a little. Add soy sauce to your taste, as well as the parmesan cheese. Let the cauliflower heat up as needed, and after that you’re all set to enjoy your food!
