CAULIFLOWER RICE

1 portion = 100g grams of riced cauliflower.

Take a head of cauliflower and remove the outer leaves. Quarter and then blitz in a blender for 10—20 secs – in batches – or you can grate it with a regular cheese grater.

Tip into a heatproof bowl, cover with cling film, then pierce and microwave for 7 mins on high – there is no need to add any water.

Adding a small handful of chopped spring onion, or seasoning with a little ground cumin (or toasted cumin seeds) adds a flavour twist.
