It’s been a while since my last post and even though I’ve been trying to post since the last couple of days I just don’t find time to do it. This week has passed very quickly so far, this week I’m having my first quizzes in some of my courses so my head is seriously all over the place!
There are 3 ways to serve this rice:
1. SOLO! You can spoon some of the rice in red cabbage leaves like I did and top it with alfalfa sprouts.
2. You can use it as a side dish, with “portobello burger”, with some cooked veggies if you’re not completely raw and use it as your side salad.
3. Roll them up! I made some rolls using collard leaves, you can use any of your favorite greens, just fill each one with the rice and make the Spicy Mandarin Sauce in this same recipe.
So, as you can see you can make so many different things with the same recipe! So it will be like eating 3 different things but at the end is kind of the same thing.
The video shows part of the process, but I will post the complete recipe here for you guys to follow in case of any doubt. Sorry about the cut in the middle of the video. Ugghh second time that happens! The only part you’ll miss is when I served it into the red cabbage and also rolled it, so the “how to” for making the sauce and rice is complete.
Gastrawnomica’s Mexican Cauliflower Rice
1 medium size jicama, peeled
2 cups cauliflower, chopped
1 medium-large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 medium zucchini, chopped
1 teaspoon dried herbs (optional)
1 thin slice of red onion
1/4 jalapeño pepper
1 big lime
Small bunch of cilantro and parsley
Red Cabbage leaves for serving
Follow video instructions.
To make the rolls fill each leaf (collard, swiss chard or romaine lettuce leaf) with the rice and top with alfalfa sprouts or spinach. Roll them and serve with the Spicy Mandarin Sauce.
Spicy Mandarin Sauce
4 medium mandarines
1/2 dried chipotle pepper, seedless
1/2 chile ancho, seedless
Mix all the ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender. Pulse constantly, the consistence has to be chunky. Specially if you’re using mandarines with seeds is better if pulsing. Serve in a small bowl and serve with rice rolls for dipping sauce. Super flavorful! Very spicy and sweet.
I hope you give it a try, and let me know what you think! I really enjoy reading your opinion! The rice is a great idea if you want to share some raw food with your family and friends, super flavorful and very easy to do.
Wish you all a great week! At least what’s left of it. I promise I’ll do my best to keep posting I really love blogging but sometimes “life” gets on my way haha.
Talk to you soon!
