I don't have anything quilty today.  I have been on a dry spell lately.  No quilting going on around here.  But, I have something to share.  You know how most of us are always looking for ways to add those veggies into our diets.  I recently have been using Cauliflower in place of either potatoes or rice.  It is reported that:

Cauliflower contains allicin, which can improve heart health and reduce the risk of strokes, and selenium, a chemical that works well with Vitamin C to strengthen the immune system. Cauliflower can also help to maintain a healthy cholesterol level.
Of course, cauliflower is an excellent source of fiber, which helps to improve colon health and can even help prevent cancer. And, most recently, it has been discovered that cauliflower, as well as other cruciferous vegetables, such as Brussels sprouts and cabbage, contain indole-3-carbinol, a substance that can affect the metabolism of estrogen in the body, and prevent breast and other female cancers.
I don’t really know all about that stuff; but, I do know that Cauliflower fried “rice” is pretty darn yummy.  And since a picture is worth 1000 words, here’s about 3000. 

What goes into it (yes that's bacon)

Raw cauliflower pulsed in food processor until mealy

Stir fried until soft but not mushy

Quilt happy,

Thanks for this, Marilyn. I will give it a try the first time the boys are out of the house (and see if it's something I can sneak past them at some point!)
