Claire Wright from addsomeveg.com shares 3 simple ways to prepare cauliflower that the whole family will enjoy.
“Riced” cauliflower makes for a really easy way to add a little more veg to the family’s plates. Just swap some or all of your rice/quinoa/couscous for simple microwave cauliflower rice. Served with a curry, sauce, meat or fish, beans or whatever you enjoy having with rice, the “rice” absorbs the flavours of the dish so is a great way to serve it to cauli-skeptics.
Blitz the cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles rice or couscous. Pour into a microwave-safe bowl and cover with cling film or a non-airtight lid, then microwave on High for 5-8 mins, until the cauliflower is cooked and piping hot. Alternatively, steam on the stove until cooked through (about 5-10 mins). Serve as you would any cooked grain. You can also do this with broccoli, squash, sweet potato or other root veggies.
