I learned just the other day "corn" means any cereal crop in Europe. Americans are the only ones to call maize corn.

I like cauliflower, but every cauliflower rice I've tried has smelled and tasted like hot ass.

As for other alternatives to rice, let me know when they're not way more expensive than rice and I'll give em a try.

I'll try some.  It might fit some dishes in particular.  Beyond that, I'm pretty OK with rice rice, it's nothing I eat so much of that I worry much about its nutritive content.  It's rice!

I'd recommend Birdseye with herbs in it. I don't microwave it, though. I put it in a pot on the stove and add 11 sticks of butter. Tastes great.

You should edit the wikipedia page on corn then.

The word "corn" outside North America, Australia, and New Zealand refers to any cereal crop

Try buckwheat groats (kasha); it tastes better than brown rice, you can cook it just the same in a rice cooker or regular pot, and it's high in protein.  Apparently it's high in minerals, and it's a complete protein, too.

The only drawback is you need to eat it right after you cook it, or you get this weird chloride/iodide smell.

Wikipedia is of course rarely wrong. 'Corn' only exists in English so when you say 'outside of North America, Australia and New Zealand' there are only a handful of countries left. I can only speak for the UK, but we call 'maize' corn, wheat wheat, oats oats and cereals cereals.

"corn" means any cereal crop in Europe

This is an odd statement given that in Europe only two countries speak English and the word 'Corn' doesn't exist in the other languages of Europe.

As for TFA. this rice sounds OK. We've had some spaghetti made from pulses. Some from lentils and some from chickpeas, both were very good.

OK, I've checked the references in the Wiki page now and understand where it's coming from. I think usage is changing (possibly the US influence on our language) but yes 'cornfields' are fields of cereals in general so I concede this point.

I stand by my 'In Europe' argument though as I think you mean 'in the UK and Ireland'.

That looks damn tasty.  Now why the fark can't companies that make cauliflower "rice" make some that tastes good?

Germanic languages do have a word for corn, since that is where the English word comes from.  In Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, and German "korn" (pronounced the same) refers to grains in general and "Mais" is used for sweet corn in particular.  French, Italian, and Spanish all use minor variations of "mais" to refer to sweet corn.

People don't getting fat because they eat rice. Billions around the world eat rice for every meal and at larger quantities than those in the US and they're not fat. Look at the East Asians.
It's because the rest of their diet is crap, their portions are humongous, and they don't get enough physical activity.
