Raw Fried Rice (cauliflower for people who hate cauliflower)
Posted Jan 15 2009 7:57pm
I'm not doing the RAW thing, perse... as far as counting percentages and obsessing. But I find that my brief foray into obsession opened up an enormous world to me - one that tastes better, most of the time, frankly. So I do find myself eating very High Raw most of the time.
This recipe is a super quick, super easy way to make a family favourite of mine - fried rice - without actually having to have any cooked rice on hand. Without actually having to cook, for that matter. If you're weirded out by the whole cauliflower thing, don't be. I hate raw cauli... but I love this dish.

This rice is as close as you’ll come to real fried rice. It’s got the right balance of mouth feel and taste, and it was a winner here at the house, even with Mr. Picky. You’ll find this serves 3 VERY generously, or four, with a side dish. Feel free to serve it very cold as a salad, or slightly warm, as I’ve suggested, for an authentic Fried Rice.
In the bowl of your food processor, pulse cauliflower into ‘rice’ and place in a bowl.
In the FP, pulse the onion, garlic, lemongrass, and cilantro or parsley until finely minced. Place in bowl.
Place peas in bowl. Stir all ingredients together.
Drizzle with oils and gf tamari or Bragg's. Stir in sunflower seeds.
Optional but AWESWOME: Heat on very low heat in a saucepan, stirring contstantly until just warm to the touch, or place in dehydrator for 30 minutes.
