Saffron Cauliflower Rice

Being of Middle Eastern decent, it's no lie that we love our rice! But personally, i'm not a total fan of eating a bowl of starch topped with some glistening butter! (Although that probably sounds tasty!) I decided to opt to a healthier version with my all time favorite ingredient-Cauliflower! Enjoy!

2 tbs. sea salt
2 c. water
1/8 tsp. saffron + 1 tbs. hot water
1 whole cauliflower, grated

Yields 4: 1/4 c. servings

The easiest way to grate up all your cauliflower is using a blender and water. Add cauliflower florets and water. No measurements needed, just add enough water to allow the florets to break down. Grate down for ~ 15 seconds. Then, add to either a cheese cloth system or you can use a regular strainer as long as you line it with paper towels first. Pour in water/cauliflower mixture and let the water drain out. Tap out more water with a paper towel. 

Next, put into saucepan with water and bring to boil. Allow to simmer and add butter (if using), saffron that has been absorbed by the hot water and add salt..
