The Grain-Free Take on Rice

and a nutritious trick for thickening mac 'n' cheese
. Turns out the tasty veg can also transform into "rice" when you shred it with a grater; you'll wind up with grain-like bits, which you can then sauté or steam.

This simple recipe pairs the cauliflower with fresh herbs, lemon, apricots and walnuts.
