Cauliflower Fried Rice

Have you jumped on the Cauliflower craze yet?  

We try to eat low carb as much as possible… although I do have to admit we fail occasionally… it’s always epic.

But cauliflower makes low-carb easy to stick with.  I’ll usually make Loaded Cauliflower Mash, Cauliflower Steaks, or even just good ol’ fashioned roasted cauliflower as a side dish at dinner. But, I was looking for a little something extra for our family’s frequent craving for Asian food…

 

Enter Cauliflower Fried Rice!  

This dish is easy to prepare with simple ingredients and a no-fuss prep.  Shredding the cauliflower in a food processor takes no time at all and the resemblance to rice is uncanny.  

 

Chop up a whole head of cauliflower with the large stalks removed.  Using the grater attachment, process the cauliflower through and you end up with this mixture that resembles small grains of rice.  

 

Heat up a non stick skillet with 1 T. sesame oil and add the cauliflower

 

Top with chopped chives

 

And frozen vegetables

 

Saute for about 5 minutes, allowing the cauliflower to soften

 

Create a well in the center and pour in the egg mixture and quickly stir to  incorporate throughout the “rice”

 

Add a few T. of soy sauce to taste and serve!  Seriously, it takes under 10 minutes to prepare this dish from start to finish…

 

And the result?  You can’t tell the difference. At. All.

 

Enjoy!
