Finally got around to making this! The best advice I think I can give someone who's whipping this up is to include as little of the stems as possible.ReplyDelete
Rather than food processor-ing the mixture, I set it to stir with the whisk attachment in my stand mixer. The stems didnt break down whatsoever :( I had to manually sort through it all. I threw the big pieces back in & tried again on a faster setting but they didn't cooperate. I wonder if there's a food processor-like blade attachment from Kitchenaid...
Thanks for your feedback.
A food processor really needs to be used for cauliflower - whether raw or cooked, a food processor will grind it properly (stems and all). I have never used a stand mixer.
When using cauliflower raw, a food processor will grind it into little bits of "rice" and for cooked cauliflower, such as in this recipe, a food processor will break it down evenly. It just needs a few pulses. It's quick.
Another suggestion is to make sure the cauliflower pieces aren't too big before you roast. I cut mine pretty small.
I hope these suggestions help.
You could experiment further with a food processor and try the cauliflower both ways (raw and cooked).
This sounds good. Sorry if this is a dumb question but what is "Mexican seasoning"?ReplyDelete
No worries, that's a great question. I will put a link up in the post.ReplyDelete
Thanks Amber! I will give it a try! :)Delete

Thanks Vicky! It's so fun to play around with the ingredients!!Delete
What a creative idea!ReplyDelete
YUM! This is an awesome way to get my kids to eat more veggies. I am putting this on my grocery list for tomorrow. I am trying to limit my rice consumption and this alternative sounds so yummy who needs the other stuff?!ReplyDelete
