Cauliflower Couscous (Plus a Sushi Bonus)!

Cauliflower Couscous (Plus a Sushi Bonus)!

Faux Rice Couscous and Sushi!

I tried to make cauliflower rice sushi, and it was an epic fail. (see video below).

Thankfully, Ashleigh Kearely (who has lost all the baby weight using intermittent fasting & flexible dieting), came to my rescue and made a video tutorial to explain how to make cauliflower rice sushi! (see video below).

But my failed attempt was not a total loss because it helped me devise a new recipe! CAULIFLOWER COUSCOUS!

Combine the following into a bowl and serve:

  • 2 cups of blended raw cauliflower florets (to mimic rice)
    • Blend the cauliflower florets in a food processor or use a grater.
  • 1 TBSP calorie free Bragg Soy Sauce alternative (or you could use low sodium chicken broth)
  • 4 oz Shrimp
  • 1 sheet of Nori Paper (rip it into tiny pieces)
  • 1 cup of sliced cucumber
  • Your favourite salt-free seasoning.

Presenting Ashleigh's masterpiece!

My epic fail: (it's hilarious):

Ashleigh's sushi success!

Bonus! Miracle Rice Sushi!

I was curious to see if I would be able to get Miracle Rice to cooperate. It worked, thanks to Ashleigh's technique. Don't be fooled by my pretty picture. It was messy to make!

This recipe makes 2 rolls:

  • Prepare the calorie free Miracle Rice as per package instructions. I find this too time consuming. I just place the miracle rice in a strainer and rinse it for a minute, then I place it in the microwave for a minute. BUT, before I toss it in the microwave, I add seasoning to give it flavour. If you want to just eat it as rice, I recommend adding  calorie free Walden Farms alfredo pasta sauce to give it flavour. (see photo).

  • Add half of the rice to 1 nori sheet.
  • Add your favourite sushi ingredients. I used tuna and cucumber.
  • Roll and slice into maki (as per Ashleigh's video instruction). I really struggled with this (it was messy!). If I did it again, I wouldn't bother slicing it. I'd just toss it all into a bowl like the couscous recipe.
