The idea of making “rice” from cauliflower is both strange and intriguing. I am all for the idea of sneaking in vegetables in my diet but the idea of  a plate full of cauliflower in the absence of cream and blistered cheese topping ala gratin or crispy coat of chickpea batter may spell a risk of blandness and possibly, traumatise you with eating boring cauliflower.

Well, I’ve noticed my pitching effort is not off to a great start here ha!

Rather than taking the plunge with plain cauliflower “rice” which entails process the cauliflower until resembles coarse crumbs and cooking it in the microwave, I  decided to take a tastier approach by making fried cauliflower “rice”. With a flavour base such as garlic, onion, fresh coriander leaves and soy sauce coupled with scrambled eggs, it is my favourite ingredients for fried rice which guarantee deliciousness and flavour so much so that when I had my friend taste test the fried cauliflower “rice”, it was similar to the normal fried rice I made.
