I'm heading out to T-Boys in 12 days and will report back on this odd boudin.

Raw cauliflower would probably be too firm so my guess is that it's been cooked just enough to be toothsomely similar to rice.

The world has suddenly discovered what those of us who cook for diabetics have known for years: Cauliflower makes a fairly acceptable substitute for rice in a lot of circumstances if you do it right. Also for potatoes, but not in as many things.

I would imagine T-boy has had a bit of an uphill climb convincing Cajuns to swap out their beloved rice for cauliflower.

Does anyone have a recipe that makes cauliflower a rice analogue?

Does anyone have a recipe that makes cauliflower a rice analogue?


There are approximately a million recipes for making cauliflower "rice". My preferred method is to rough chop it and place it in a food processor. Pulse until it starts to resemble snow or ice crystals (it's a learning curve to hit the line between small enough and accidentally making pudding). From there you can either microwave, steam, or blanch until it becomes soft (I usually microwave because it's easiest, something like 2-4 minutes depending on how much you have).
 
This is the important part a LOT of recipes leave out: Wrap it in a kitchen towel and squeeze out as much water as humanly possible! Use more than one towel if necessary. If you leave all that liquid in there you'll once again end up with pudding instead of "rice" as soon as you add it to anything. Also, if you're making something where normally the rice would absorb liquid, it will not, even if you add it raw instead of cooking first.
 
It is not rice. But it does fill the requirement and is a lot healthier than white rice. A 1-cup serving of cauliflower "rice" has 29 calories and 7.5 grams of carbs. A 1-cup serving of white rice has 242 calories and 53 grams of carbs.
 
Edit:
Should have mentioned also, only use the florets, no stems. The stems don't work for this.

Thanks, I have a friend trying to give up carbs, I'll make her a batch and see if it can be useful to her diet.
