This Thermomix Cheesy Cauliflower Rice makes a great side dish for the family and is also a great food for babies and toddlers!
When I recently came across Cauliflowers for just 48 cents each (yep, seriously!) I couldn't help myself and bought NINE of them! This seemed like a great idea at the time, but after making five batched of Cheese and Cauliflower Fritters I knew I needed to come up with some other recipes to make.
This Thermomix Cheesy Cauliflower Rice was a big hit with all three of my kids, the older boys who won't normally eat cauliflower when it's just been steamed LOVED this 'special rice' which I served with roast lamb and veggies and our baby boy who will eat anything couldn't get enough of it!
For the grown ups you can add a little salt and pepper when you add the cheese, I left it out for the kids though. I've made a couple of batches of this recipe so far and have popped it into the freezer for an easy side or meals for the kids down the track.
