As a matter of food prep in our house – “white food” is not eaten. No rice, no potatoes, no bread, no milk… you get the idea.
As you have seen, we go with other less “evil” options – jicama or cauliflower!
Recently we have been toying with the idea of moving/selling our house, so it’s a challenge to “eat” all the things in the house – i have an extensive panty, and an extra freezer… so we have some work to do. I’m also kind of a hoarder… especially of specialty meat etc- “gotta save it for a special occasion”. So we have plenty of chorizo in all manner, but also the normal bacon etc saved for special occasions! So when it came time to start using up the cauliflower there were many constraints in this iron chef:
- Ingredients must be in the house
- Hubby doesn’t like the taste of cauliflower, so however this is cooked it must mask that
- Hubby doesn’t really like onion or veggies in his fried rice (sigh)
We had the riced cauliflower in the freezer, eggs in the fridge, plenty of chorizo – we were ready!

By the packaging you really think it’s a big old bag to take out what you want, but it is 4 individualized bags
