La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France. We chose it while on the road, moving home, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, that is back in Ireland.

Cauliflower 'rice' - (45 cal) - 5:2

Cauliflower has been a life saver in my quest to bring down my blood sugar levels.
My low carb diet wouldn't be so 'easy' to maintain if it weren't for the different flavours and textures on my dinner plate. It is also low in calories, which helps
Just to clarify. It is not my own idea. I read about it on the internet and took it from there.

And no, it doesn't taste overly cauliflowery at all.

Serves 2 -  45 calories per person
  • half a head of cauliflower, +/- 450 grs  (20 cal / 100 grs)
  • a splash of water
  • seasoning
  • herbs, spices of your choosing
  • You'll need a food processor for this with grating attachment.
  • Grate the cauliflower and transfer to a microwave dish with lid.
  • Add a splash of water and nuke for 5 minutes on highest setting.
  • Stir and taste for degree of doneness, if necessary put it back for a couple of minutes.
  • When ready, stir in your seasoning, herbs and spices of your liking.
  • Put the lid back on and let it rest for 3 minutes to bring all the favours together.
Serve instead of rice or couscous.

Thank you for visiting.
