New Food Monday Continued…

So last night we continued with New Food Monday and my kids were a little nervous. So I made a deal with them – they could pick a ‘new-ish’ food they liked and I would pick something they had not tried before. They picked the chicken pancakes from last week which I was happy about as it was a good reinforcer of that particular high protein dish. I then picked a vegetable side disguised as rice – aka cauliflower rice with onions, peas and turmeric. My friend Rosie sent me over a great recipe a few weeks ago and I’m hooked. It’s packed full of fiber, vitamins and anti-inflammatory turmeric. They tried it, it wasn’t a big hit but the deal was one bite and no complaining. My youngest child had a whole bowl of it! The older two didn’t get 10/10 for their effort but it’s new to them so I’ll give them a pass. In order to avoid the ‘rice’ they ate all their chicken so I guess it was a win-win. Here is my attempt, and the recipe for cauliflower rice is below. Tip – orange cauliflower does not have as pungent a smell as white and so your house will recover a lot more quickly :-). photo 1-8 Recipe from Rosie:

1 cauliflower, grated in Cuisinart
1 large onion, chopped 
olive oil (i use a generous amount, maybe 3 Table spoons, but you don’t have to)
salt
1/2 tea spoon turmeric
1 cup frozen peas, or anything else you want to add, pepper, mushrooms, grilled chicken, etc.
Sauté onion in olive oil until softened. Add turmeric. Add cauliflower. Mix everything. Check if you want more turmeric, depending on color. Add salt. Add peas. Cover and let it cook for a few minutes in low heat. Cook until the consistency that you like.
