Cauliflower Fried Rice

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.

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.
