My wife has decided that rice is evil and has been buying and cooking a lot of cauliflower "rice" which is just cauliflower pulverized into little bits.
Don't get me wrong, I like cauliflower, when it's lightly steamed and with a good bit of butter and S&P or even mashed, but this "rice" crap gotta go. It's NASTY.
I've made it clear I don't care for it and she now makes me real rice but she'll continue to eat this fake crap.
Anyone else try it? BLECH!

My wife has highly restrictive diet needs so I've been eating cauliflower rice and spinach crust pizza with her for years so she wouldn't feel alone.
Its very healthy and tastes as good, just different until you get used to it.
I'm on a carb jihad and have started trying all sorts of weird replacements for things I really like to eat. So far the cauliflower rice and pizza dough have been failures. I'm willing to keep trying different options to a point but knowing what the real stuff is and tastes like I'm having a difficult time buying in to the pale substitutes.
Got some big plans for that extra 2 months you'll live by giving up the real stuff?

I focus more on the increase in my quality of life over the next 40 years.

I like it IF it has proper sauce with it.
For example, I do broiled fish with a lemon, garlic and dill sauce. When served over cauliflower rice with a good bit of the sauce, it's good. On its own, with just butter and salt, I agree, it's pretty awful.

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Not as bad as the squash in place of spaghetti. Holy dark lord of ass taste! What a disaster that was.

Cauliflower “this and that” is the trendy new food that has replaced kale in everything.

Ha! I get where you're coming from and agree in the abstract but my particular situation is one where I'm trying to live the next 40+ years with as little intervention by the medical industrial complex as possible. Changes I'm not entirely thrilled about now and for the foreseeable future will hopefully offset losing the genetic lottery and allow for a higher quality of life for a longer period of time. I ain't happy about it. I miss rice and pasta and bread and cookies and chips and all that but I'd miss my feet or my vision more. Of course I could get hit by a truck tomorrow and it would all be for naught but I gots to play the odds as they're listed. So for now it's a new world of weird ass substitutes that make going without seem a better option.

Tried cauliflower "mashed potatoes." Home made isn't bad at all but store bought frozen stuff really needs uncovered high heat when baking to remove the excess moisture that otherwise renders it like baby food.

I've put curry and stir fries on it. It's not bad that way since all rice does in those dishes is soak up flavor anyway.
Aeronautics confers beauty and grandeur, combining art and science for those who devote themselves to it. . . . The aeronaut, free in space, sailing in the infinite, loses himself in the immense undulations of nature. He climbs, he rises, he soars, he reigns, he hurtles the proud vault of the azure sky. — Georges Besançon
My wife made "fauxtatoes" with cauliflower. Whipped up the vegetable, dosed with butter and salt, and served as if it was mashed taters. My kids lived with the lie for years. Probably scarred them for life.

coffee, and sarcasm.
Related: had a bite of a “keto” cookie today made with almond flour. It was quite like a cake mix cookie (big and soft) so I liked it fine.
I always prefer reality when I can figure out what it is.

I can only imagine the conversation at the restaurant when the kids finally tasted the real thing.
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.
Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.
Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

Your taste buds must be clogged. Cauliflower rice is nasty.
My wife must be doing something wrong. I haven't complained about her cauliflower rice at all.
“Little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice: all the rest being brought about by the natural course of things.”--Adam Smith, born June 16, 1723
My family likes cauliflower rice, and it's a good way to stretch a meal.
A couple of ways to keep rice from giving you a glucose spike (if that's what your wife's concern is) are to either cook it in coconut oil or cook ahead of time, refrigerate, and reheat.
Somewhere I have a link to an article that does a better job of explaining all the science, but this one is more fun to read:

To each his own. I do a lot of things I don't particularly like doing. Working out, paying taxes, obeying speed limits, and eating healthy.
I'd love to eat nothing but sugary carbs all day long but I prefer a 6 pack over unsightly beer guts and not being on 17 different medications for heart disease and diabeetus.
