Cauliflower rice/mash is the new cool way to pretend you are having a starch. Well actually, its not new, it came about with the Atkins craze, along with scurvy. Regardless, I hated cauliflower until recently, and now its in my regular vegetable rotation, so its new to me, and was inspired by my good friend Emily at http://nomnivorous.com/ This recipe also features a hard to find ingredient, and i apologize for that, but really, black vinegar is worth searching out. I learned this at a dumpling class at Brooklyn Kitchen and promptly went to a restaurant supply shop in Chinatown to get some, it is DEFINITELY what was missing from my previous stir frys.

1 head cauliflower
1/2 container snap peas*

2 cloves garlic
1 tb olive oil
Cooking time – approx 30 minutes
Step 1 – I usually hand grate a whole head to use as rice, but this time i was in a hurry so i pulsed it in my Magic Bullet and tossed it in my seasoned wok, dousing with soy sauce and garlic, cook for about 5 minutes
