FRIED CAULIFLOWER RICE

 This makes family size servings, to make less just 1/2 the recipe.  If I were you I would make the whole recipe, you  will want the left overs.

2 heads of cauliflower
5-6 green onions, sliced
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 TBSP minced garlic
1 tsp grated ginger (or more if you want a stronger ginger flavor)
1 cup of diced carrots (as close to the same size as possible)

2 eggs, scrambled

6 TBSP Coconut Amino's

3 TBSP Coconut Oil

Begin by removing just the flowerets from your cauliflower, not the stems (you can save the other parts to make soup later if you would like).  Place them in a food processor a little at a time and pulse till about the size of rice.  

Place in a casserole dish covered with a lid or with plastic wrap and microwave 3-6 minutes (my microwave is weak so it took 6 minutes).  During that time take your onion, green onion, garlic and carrots and saute in about 3 TBSP Coconut oil, just a few minutes, till the onions are getting translucent.  Add your "Rice" and "stir Fry" for a few minutes, adding your coconut amino's and a good dose of salt and pepper to flavor. 

I like mine a little brown and crispy, it's all up to what you want.  If your eggs are prescrambled then just add them to the pan and mix in, if not plate your "Fried Rice" and scramble your eggs in the same pan and mix in. 

Top with a little sesame oil and/or sesame seeds if desired and enjoy!   Serve with your choice for protein, shrimp, beef, chicken, fish, take your choice.  I ate mine with some beef that had been marinated in, coconut Amino's, garlic, salt and pepper, fried in the same pan as the Fried Cauli Rice.  Plated with the rice and eaten mixed together was pure deliciousness!

  1. Had to pop in and let you know I made this last night (only I did it Mexican style and fried in Macadamia nut oil). I was having the kids over for dinner. I say it came out perfect but it hit me that there was no way my old school daughter or grandchildren would go for it and I couldn't just offer meat so luckily I still had a can of corn and a can of refried beans in the pantry. :-) My husband and I loved it and I look forwasrd to the leftovers later today!

  2. Yeah, I am looking forward to experimenting with it too, I want to try Spanish rice (which sounds like what you did?). I also discovered that if you pulse the cauliflower a little longer it becomes like couscous. So now I am thinking couscous salad too! I love that it makes me forget I am eating veggies!
