Freezing cauliflower

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!!

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.
