Cauliflower is such a good substitute for rice, I find it indistinguishable. And I have been so antsy to share this recipe with you, best dolmas I’ve ever had! No joke. I don’t joke about food. I often feel like Winnie the Pooh, when trying to come up with some of these #fakepregnancy food ideas. Think. Think. Think.
Cause there’s rules. So many rules. Oh, all good rules though. Plus it keeps it more creative. So when the lightbulb went off to make dolmas with cauliflower I was ecstatic. Knowing that you do enjoy a good dolma, but there’s the rice, so I’m excited for you to try these.
How versatile is the cauliflower? Let me count the ways! Not only can it be eaten raw or roasted; it’s now quite popular as a pizza crust, made into mashed “potatoes” or as a rice, like in these dolmas. Of course, you can make your own cauliflower rice at home, just grating fresh cauliflower. But, now it’s so easy and economical to just buy it already “riced” in the frozen section, and after my search I was pleased to find a shelf-stable option!
Did you know that cauliflower contains choline? Say what?!? Haha, me neither! Thought it was an interesting and timely fun fact because choline helps with sleep, muscle movement, learning, and memory. All so relevant! And as an added bonus fact, Jeopardy are you listening? Peanuts are another food high in choline.
25 week babies are 13.6 inches long and weigh 1.5 lbs! Their new trick this week is sticking their tongue out, according to babylist.com. Moms may be starting to experience a hard time sleeping, so pretty fitting that the cauliflower contains the choline, aiding in sleep!
Following this recipe, just making an easy switch of rice for cauliflower.
