I am so happy to say that I now belong to a Organic produce buying club! I put it off for a couple of years because I heard many horror stories about them. Some of the bad things that I heard were:
- Produce substitution
- Not knowing what to do with all the different types of fruits and veggies
- Produce rotting
- Very expensive
Those reasons alone turned me off to the concept of paying for a bi-monthly delivery of organic fruits and vegetables. Then one day – an opportunity came knocking at my door and I decided to jump in head first and sign on. Endlessly Organic is a local company who partnered with my daughters company to use them as a base to deliver their fruits and vegetables every other Wednesday of the month. I checked out their options and their prices and decided to give it a try. If it doesn’t work out, I can always cancel.
What I love about Endlessly Organic is that they have a GREAT Website and share recipes for that week’s produce on Pinterest! Makes everything so easy! I get so excited when my box arrives! I love unpacking the bounty and looking at the beautiful colors of the produce and quality of it. Even when I receive a fruit or vegetable I rarely eat or know what to do with . . . I know that I’ll figure something out.
So, in last weeks box, I received a beautiful medium sized organic cauliflower. I put it aside and knew that I would make a RAW Cauliflower Rice. I used only ingredients that I had laying around my house and this is what I came up with:
Raw Tropical Cauliflower Rice
1 medium head cauliflower (I used organic – you can use what you wish) washed
Juice from 1/2 Lemon
2-3 tablespoons olive oil (omit if you don’t want the fat)
1/3 cup diced cucumbers
1/3 cup diced fresh pineapple
3 Tablespoons dried cherries (I used Trader Joe’s)
Break the cauliflower into florets and pulse in food processor using the “S” blade. If you don’t have a food processor, you can grate it using a grater.
Mix all the ingredients together and Voile! You have Tropical Cauliflower Rice. Use it as a side dish or a main!
Go wild and experiment with different fruits and vegetables. Be daring! And always remember one thing . . .
No matter what you do, whether it works out or not, the one thing you must ALWAYS do is . . .
