The day after I learned about the link between pregnancy & Type 2 diabetes, I was in my kitchen processing cauliflower into rice.
Oh, how the health of our bodies can turn our kitchens upside down!
I was helping a friend a few years ago, who during her second trimester, was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. She was a very healthy eater already, but the doctor advised her to cut down on carbohydrates like cereal and rice to regulate her blood sugar. Rice was a staple of her diet, so she asked me for help to find her a substitute. So a day later, I was busy chopping and transforming cauliflower into rice.
Cauliflower as an alternative to rice? I was skeptical that it could stand in for fluffy rice. But to my surprise, cauliflower ‘rice’ turned out to be delightful, and I started to incorporate it into more of my meals like in this recipe for spicy, tangy Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice.
