    Just found the below in Sainsburys. Seems and interesting way of getting over the low carb loss of rice etc and also getting a bit of veg in.

    Good idea
    I tend to use brussels sprouts rather than cauliflower, but similar principle

    In a way yes. Just put in cauliflower heads in a food processor and do it that way.

    Tasted alright actually and left me feeling pretty full as well. Definitely not a texture like rice but at the same time it was bloody awesome from a dieting mentality point to eat a big plate of filling food. Had it with a load of turkey mince and hot sauce.

    I think they where £2 a pack so not cheap but would definitely throw them in at a tail end of a week when dieting is tough

    Like @tio said above... Just blitz couple of cauli in a blender, make up batches and freeze in portions... Defrost and use when needed... I prefer to oven cook mine.. Gives it a little crunch

    Very true I just never thought about doing it for some reason. I always finely chop green beans or asparagus in no carb meals so not sure why I never thought of that.

    They have a fairly long shelf life so I would say these are good to have in as an emergency or when travelling. Uncle ben also just started doing there wholemeal rice in smaller 3 packs that exactly fit my portion size so it's another emergency one I keep in a cupboard

    Doesnt taste of much, its more of a texture than a taste. I tend to todd mine with things like garlic and coriander while i steam it.

    I also use a vegetable spiral slicer to make courgette pasta if you're dieting as this is very filling and near enough 0 carbs and very little calories

    You can also boil the cauliflower and then add a big dollop of full fat cream cheese and mash it like potatoes.

    @tio nice one matey. Made my own this evening and spiced it up with hot sauce and spices. Was 25% the cost and tasted better also. Even made dry chicken breast good. The wife thought I'd fallen off the wagon and made Cous Cous lol

    You need to google Caulibread and pizza base too for great low carb sandwiches and pizza. Cheap and easy to make.
