Freezing cauliflower

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Was going to post this in Preserving forum but there was no "freezing" section.

Got five heads of cauliflower. Set half a head aside to eat raw and shredded the rest (after washing with salt water).


Cooked the shreds in the microwave for 5 minutes (in batches), cooled, froze, then vacpacked.


Makes for a quick side.
Can be nuked seasoned for a few more minutes before serving, or fried in a pan with some butter or olive oil.

We love cauliflower rice (they taste nothing like rice - don't know who came up with the name).

Looks good. We do cauliflower rice as well. Real rice is hard on my body. I'm a diabetic and it sure raises the blood sugar like a home sick angel.

It also makes a good filler in soups and sauces. We blend it in with a immersion blender. We also sneak it into the Mac n cheese so the kids get veggies without knowing it!!

Here are pimento peppers and tomatoes filled with pulled pork and cauliflower rice.

Pureed! Pepper, 1tsp Chicken Base and more Butter than the Dr. will ever hear about and the kids were not convinced they were not eating mashed taters....JJ

Great tip from JJ!  Also a great preparation for squash.

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Excellent tips. I love cauliflower in any form to begin with, and its a lot healthier than taters if you're watching the carbs.

Now you guys have me thinking about smoking some!

I've gotta try some of your ideas.

Tabbed in.
