Day 158 Low Carb "Rice"

Day 158 Low Carb

- Mashed cauliflower with butter
- Burger with all the fixins on an oopsie bun
- Hot ham, hot pepper jack cheese, tomato & mayo on an oopsie bun
- Cocoa roast almonds
- Pork and shrimp stir-fry, over riced cauliflower*

Oh em gee! Wow, this was so good! I think the cauliflower works best for "rice" when you make it in the microwave. For a 16 oz bag of frozen cauliflower, use about two tablespoons of water and cook it for 7-10 minutes in the microwave, shaking the covered microwavable bowl after five minutes. Drain well in a strainer and grate it with a cheese grater. Do not try to use a food processor (unless the cauliflower is raw) or you will end up with mashed cauliflower.

Once grated, add butter, salt and pepper (or your favorite rice seasonings) and serve. This holds up well as leftovers, but I've never tried to freeze it.
