You know that cauliflower makes a veggiecentric stand-in for the usually doughy pizza crust, but believe it or not, its ability to cut the carbs in your favorite recipes goes beyond that. Enter cauliflower rice, this week's Most Popular Pin of the Week. All it takes is a few blitzes in a food processor to turn cauliflower florets into granule-like bits that have much the same look and texture as the rice you know and love. In this lightened-up recipe from Food Network Kitchen, the cauliflower rice is cooked with softened onions and tossed with fresh parsley to soften the texture of the vegetable and offer subtle flavor. "With the olive oil and browned onions, the cauliflower has enough flavor to satisfy by itself," the chefs in Food Network Kitchen explain, "and it can also be a base for stir-fries, beans and rice or anything else you would eat with rice."
