Low Carb Cauliflower and Bacon

Cauliflower and Bacon with cheese and onions... so good!

We are getting ready to embark on another round of no sugar and lower carb meals next Sunday (usually for about 4-6 weeks at a time).  If you've been a reader for awhile, you know we have done this since the beginning of 2002.  Wow, 10 years already!

Since I use my own website to store the recipes I use on a daily basis, I wanted to get this one posted as it is one of my favorite ways to eat cauliflower!  Originally I got the original idea for this one from Dana Carpender's book  and then tweaked it to use just plain cauliflower, no rice, and no Vege-Sal.  I eat this as a meal in and of itself.  Nothing more needed.  So good!

Cauliflower and Bacon
1 small onion, chopped
1 stick butter
4 cups of raw cauliflower that has been run through the food processor's S-blade to resemble rice
6 strips bacon, cooked until crisp and then crumbled
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c Parmesan cheese

Cook the onion in the butter until it's soft and translucent.  Add the rice and cook until the onion starts to get golden and the cauliflower just gets tender.  Add the rest of the ingredients and warm through.  Season to taste.
