Recipe: Cauliflower Fried Rice

Recipe: Cauliflower Fried Rice

I love rice. White rice, wild rice, brown rice, fried rice, seriously, I love it all.

With cauliflower rice being a recent trend, I finally caved in an effort to cut down on my carbs, and made cauliflower fried rice. I made this recipe to go with mongolian beef and I'll be honest, no it's not rice, but it's pretty darn good.

This is great as a side dish, but it also could be a meal if you are looking for something quick. You can add whatever veggies you like too. It's so easy to make!!

Enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup frozen carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 scallions, diced, whites and greens separated
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce, or more to taste

Preparation:

  • Pour cauliflower rice into a pan, over low heat for 4-7 minutes, so that it is no longer frozen.

  • Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium heat and spray with oil.
  • Add the eggs and cook, turning a few times until set; set aside.
