Cauliflower Fried Rice

Cauliflower fried rice.

This has been my low carb breakfast go-to for a while now. I love how full and satisfied I feel after eating this for breakfast  It keeps me satiated for about 4 to 5 hours. Plenty of cruciferous veggies in this one make it super filling and gut friendly! Above photo is while adding ingredients during cooking process .  Yes, you could add wine as the tile on my stove says!  HAHA!  But typically I don’t on this one!

  • You can really make it with whatever you have in your fridge. The basic recipe is very simple and you can out your own twist on it based on your personal taste. It’s a fun recipe to play around with.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Avocado oil
  • Riced Cauliflower ~Costco has best deal, Trader Joes too for smaller bag.
  • Coleslaw mix  ~ pre-shredded cabbage and carrots
  • onion  ~ finely chopped
  • sesame oil ~ Just a dribble
  • Eggs
  • Soy sauce or Tamari for (GF)
  • Sriracha ~ I like the chunky one in the jar for this recipe but squirt one works
  • green onions *
  • mushrooms *
  • leftover meat *
  • arugula or spinach*
  • edamame*
  • pinch of Truffle salt*
  • Whatever seems good and you have laying around* 🙂
  • *  Optional ingredient suggestions

Preparation:

Heat up a medium sized skillet with about 1 Tbsp of Avocado oil to high heat . I usually do it on an 8 or almost 9 on my gas burner. (think… almost stir-fry).  Add chopped onion and mushrooms first and saute for a couple minutes. Add a Tbsp of water if you are adding mushrooms to get them to release their liquid. Continue by adding the riced cauliflower and coleslaw mix.  How much depends on servings.  I use about 2 cups of cauliflower and 1 cup coleslaw mix to make a hearty serving for myself. CRITICAL to keep stirring it since it’s on high heat . The cauliflower must be cooked on high heat to avoid it becoming mushy. Keep STIRRING.  Add meat or other leftover ingredients (I love leftover Turkey Meatloaf in this )

Add about a Tbsp of Soy sauce and the sesame oil as well as the Sriracha if you want some spiciness. I use a Tbsp or so.  Keep stirring for a couple more minutes. Create a well in the center to crack the eggs into.

1 or 2 depending on whether I have meat added or not. I cut it back to 1 if I do add meat. Let the eggs cook for about a minute then stir again and keep stirring to coat the cauliflower and other ingredients and keep cooking until the egg is fairly dry and distributed. It should look like fried rice.

Cauli rice finished

Serve immediately. It can get overcooked easily and the texture is not as good.

Enjoy!!
