Time to Cook

It truly tastes like “fried rice”.   I love how we can use good ol Cauliflower for so many meals that are normally a no-no in our daily diva diet.   Enjoy it with shrimp or chopped up chicken breast sautéed in pineapple salsa and Sriracha (if you like heat) and a side of asparagus or broccoli.   Super healthy, Super tasty & easy.

Ingredients

Fried “Rice”

~You can find bags of cauliflower already chopped up like rice at Trader Joe or most grocery stores in the produce area sometimes freezer section.

  • 2 cups of cauliflower rice  
  • 1 cup of chopped onion, peas, carrots, celery  (sometimes you can find already chopped together) you can decide the ratio of each veggie depending on your tastes.
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 whole egg, 1 egg white
  • 2-3 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce
  • 1.5 tablespoons of sesame oil
  • Pepper to taste

Use a large saute pan on medium heat.  Pour in about 1 tablespoon of oil in pan and let simmer for a minute. Then add chopped onions, peas, carrots and garlic. Cook until tender 5-7 minutes.

Now move the veggies to the outer part of the pan to create a circle in the middle. Pour a little sesame oil in the middle & crack eggs (1 whole, 1 white) in the middle of the veggies.  Let eggs cook a minute, then start mixing in veggies and add cauliflower rice and soy sauce. Keep mixing and chopping up eggs to distribute evenly. Continue mixing until the consistency of fried rice.  Put lid on pan and let cook and steam for 5 min.  Mix up again & turn off burner.  Ready to go!
