I am not much of a cook but I have to share with you my latest obsession.
Let me preface this by saying I am the last person to jump on food trends. I roll my eyes so hard when I read about Paleo and clean eating (seriously, that term has got to go away, clean eating implies other eating is dirty and somehow wrong and it just comes across of arrogant) that they should get stuck that way.
However, I am a carbaholic. It's bad, you guys. If I can find a way to get the feeling of carbs without the calories of carbs, I will go for it. Unfortunately, I don't really like cauliflower which seems to be the be all and end all substitute for carbs. Um, cauliflower crust does not taste like pizza crust.
I tired riced cauliflower instead of rice in a stir fry because I read a blogger who raved about it. I saw it at my local Trader Joe's and tossed a bag into my cart.
Um, good lord, it is the best.
Now, whenever I go to TJ's I grab two bags of this. I am going to become a riced cauliflower hoarder. Tonight I'm going to try to make more of a Spanish rice with it with diced tomatoes, black beans, and green chilies. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Enjoy your long weekend!
