"A Middle Eastern cauliflower and rice dish." — Charlie Youakim

cauliflower, broken into florets
olive oil, or as needed
ground black pepper
uncooked white rice
I did this with brown rice and frozen cauliflower and it came out really nice. With the brown rice you need a bit more water and the cook time is longer.
I was kind of disappointed in this recipe. After reading reviews, I doubled up most of the spices, but it still tasted bland. I also needed to add more water, because the rice didn't fully cook and then burned on the bottom of the pan. It was okay, but not something I would make again.
Just made this according to the recipe and everyone in the family liked it. I was worried when I did a "taste test" of the water with spices added, thinking it would be too spicy, but when added to the meat, cauliflower, and rice it comes out just fine. I might even increase the curry powder a little next time.
I used broccoli instead of the cauliflower, and no meat. The flavors go well together. To save time, I roasted the broccoli while the rice, onions, and spices were cooking, so I served the broccoli on top of the rice. This was somewhat colorful. Now, I can't wait to try it with cauliflower!
followed the recipe (did use the microwave to boil the spiced water) and i'm sold!
i am no expert cook, but i enjoyed going past my comfort level with this recipe.... after five ingridients i get nervous! but this recipe was so much fun to make, and it turned out PERFECT, i'll be looking for more middle eastern dishes to try out.
I thought this was just ok. I doubled the spices and it was still a big bland for us.
Overall this recipe was pretty good, I loved being able to combine the cauliflower, beef and rice with a curried flavor. I halved the recipe and I don't know if that made the difference or not but it lacked the full flavor I was expecting. I will make this again but I think I will double most of the spices (especially the curry and tumeric!). I would also like to try this without the meat too - it would make a great vegetarian dish!
This was edible, but anything I'd make again. Too bland.
