Default Cauliflower for Potato Salad & Fried Rice

Yesterday had a heaping helping of potato salad with dinner made with boiled cauliflower instead of potatoes. I was skeptical goes it stunk when boiling, mashed it up and made the regular recipe (minus the potatoes). It was delicious, couldn’t tell the difference from that and the real thing. Earlier in the week grated some cauliflower and cooked as fried rice, also came out good nto quite as good as the real thing but a great substitute. With another dish loaded on top of it (beef and bell pepper stir fry) I couldn’t tell the difference, and I hate cauliflower, raw or cooked I would never eat it before (even loaded with cheese).

Yes, definitely cauliflower is a nice addition to your dinner plan. I think boiled rice are fine for dinner if used with fresh vegetables salad. I like potato in baked form more because they are more tasty in baked form.

Michael, rice is a problem for many of us, so making it from cauliflower is a good way to make it and a baked potato is dangerous for many too. What does your meter tell you when you eat them?

I make cauliflower salads all the time. Sometimes I add in bacon bits, sometimes celery and raddishes. I would think that one could make the hot German-type "potato" salad as well.

For me, though, it still tastes like cauliflower. But I LIKE cauliflower, so all is well.
