Cauliflower ‘Fried’ Rice and my new best friend

I was a bit of a sceptic when I first heard about cauliflower rice, I just couldn’t believe that it would be a substitute for rice, no matter how low in calories it was!  I enjoyed it as Morroccan Spiced Cauliflower Cous Cous Tabbouleh from a recipe from Karen at Lavender and Lovage a but it wasn’t until I tried this  Cauliflower “Fried Rice” recipe from Domesticate Me that I was really wowed by cauliflower rice.

I was helped along by my new best friend, the OXO Good Grips 28cm Non-Stick Frypan, it’s got a Magneto Induction Base which is really thick and heavy, a really substantial pan.  It has 3 layer PFOA-Free non-stick, it’s dishwasher safe and the silicone-metal construction allows it to go directly from hot to oven, it’s oven safe to 200C!

I’ve used this frying pan nearly every night since I got it. It’s the perfect size for stir-frying, you can get lots of bulky veg into it without it spilling out over the sides. In the past I’ve found that larger pans heat unevenly as the base is larger than the heating element, but not this one, it distributes the heat evenly so the food at the edges gets cooked too.

Prices start from £29.99 with the pans available in four different sizes (20cm, 24cm, 28cm and 30cm). Available from Lakeland now.

    this looks so gorgeous and so healthy… I was just discussing my new low-carb diet with The Viking and thinking about how fabulous the humble cauliflower is and how we could make cauliflower rice for a stir fry and here's your post!… thanks for sharing and inspiring x
