This was an oddly common Frederick Family side dish growing up. I just had some to use up an odd 1/3 cup of leftover pasta in the fridge as a snack, which made me think of it for the challenge. Barely a recipe.

This is my second or third time making cauliflower rice and probably my most basic rendition. I used this recipe for inspiration and paired it with these kebabs (using shrimp instead of chicken). Terrific meal during my low carb week.
UPDATE: You can also make this with broccoli and it’s arguably even better.
This recipe calls for currants but I couldn’t find them at the store, so I used dried cranberries instead. As a result, this was probably sweeter than the recipe intended, but we still enjoyed it. We paired it with turkey palliards (as well as some stir-fried veggies) much like often we do with Becky’s quinoa recipe.
John and I handled Christmas cooking this year because of family stuff going on. That meant John’s Chicken and Rice for a pre-Christmas meal; Meatballs with Sauce and Inside Out Stuffed Peppers to bring to expecting family members; Mandy’s Egg Bake for Christmas Eve breakfast; cheese, shrimp cocktail and hummus (with carrots and pita) for Christmas Day appetizers/snacks; and a plain baked ham for general snacking/filler.
But Christmas Dinner was of course, the main event. I told John to pick up a meat roast that wasn’t as expensive as prime rib that I could pair with Yorkshire Pudding. He came back with top round. I’d never cooked it before so I was a little nervous about how it would turn out, but we were thrilled with the results. We served it with said Yorkshire Pudding , a simple Greek salad and green beans almondine. I also made a quick mushroom gravy to go with the meat.
