Serve this simple dish with grilled flat bread, yoghurt and mint and your favourite chutney. I love this dish with pan-fried beef sausages too. Tip - you can cover the saucepan, partially with the lid if the liquid is evaporating too quickly during simmering.
Serve this cauliflower rice with chicken tenders and a small bowl of natural, unsweetened yoghurt mixed with a few finely shredded mint leaves. Use store bought chicken tenders found in the freezer at your supermarket or you could pan-fry pieces of fresh chicken. Season the fresh chicken and toss in a little oil before pan-frying.
We love cauliflower for versatility and now is a great time to cook with them as they’re excellent buying at New World. Part of the brassica family of veges, they’re packed with nutrients and easy to incorporate into more than just a stir fry — try a creamy cauliflower mash or add florets in with your classic roast veges. – Brigit Corson, New World Fresh Expert
