    But all this cauliflower rice, and roasted cauliflower etc seems to throw away the best bits! Namely, the middle of the stalk, and the leaves!

    Cauliflower has been touted as a low carb potato substitute for a good few years now. It's only now becoming "fashionable".

    I agree Sarah total waste of money throwing the stalk and leaves away, they are good to bulk out stir-fry veg or making cauliflower soup with a little stilton cheese or soft full fat cream cheese.

    Just made riced cauliflower and the stalks went in first to be blitzed then the florets. Ditto with cauli mash, stalks first cook then add florets.

    Yes, and I don't remove stalks when I'm roasting cauliflower either.

    Pleased to hear it. The non-fibrous middle of the main stalk is lovely raw. And for me, the leaves are the star, not to bulk something else out. Never used to have competition for them when we were kids...

    I broke a tooth on raw cauli that resulted in extraction and finally a bridge 30 years later, so much as I love it Sarah, I'm not game to eat raw cauli stalk.

    Great find Sue, thanks. It is always lovely to find a recipe which does not rely on nut flour for binding. Will give this a try.
