Rice-a-RAWma II: “Fried” cauliflower rice

I grew up on rice.  Rice of all sorts.  Rice pudding, rice porridge, glutinous rice dumplings, rice flour rolls and of course… fried rice.

This rice dish attempts to mimic fried rice – hold the calories!  So when hubby said “it really does taste like fried rice!” I thought I’d share it with you all.

I prefer it served cold, a la salad.  Warmed up gently on the stove, it’s a good raw substitute for the unhealthy fried version.

“Fried” Cauliflower Rice

1 head of cauliflower
handful of peas
1/2 diced small onion
2 tsp each: ginger and garlic (you can use fresh or powders)
¼ cup parsley
2 tbs sesame oil
tamari, soy sauce or kecap manis (to taste)
sesame seeds

Pulse all ingredients except sesame seeds in the food processor until it resembles ‘rice’.  Careful not to over-process.  Taste and adjust seasonings.

Empty into a bowl and top with sprinkles of sesame seeds.

Try adding your own toppings such as corn kernels or chopped mushrooms. Serve as is or warm on a low heat.

Bon apetit!
