I am a huge fan of Chinese food. I've been eating it since I was little. It's basically a comfort food for me. I am also a huge fan of carbs. I was talking to my sister about how much we love carbs, and we decided it's our mom's fault. She must've been eating bread and pasta nonstop when she was pregnant with us both. The three of us just can't get enough.
Rice is especially a big one for me. I'd probably be happy eating fried rice every single day. Unfortunately, I don't get to eat fried rice every single day. I actually rarely eat it because it isn't the healthiest.
That's not to say that I have anything against eating carbs. I'm not anti or low carb necessarily, but I am pro vegetable and about balance. I don't like to eat just rice or just pasta as an entire meal, but I wanted some fried rice. I had recently heard about using cauliflower as a rice replacement, so I decided I wanted to try it out to kick this fried rice craving.
Here's what you'll need:
-1 head of cauliflower
-2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables (My bag had peas, carrots, corn, and green beans - I'd suggest at least peas and carrots)
-1 clove garlic
-3 tbsp sesame oil
-1/2 of a yellow onion, chopped
-1/4 cup Braggs liquid aminos
-1 tbsp sriracha (optional)
1) Add 1/2 of the cauliflower florets into a food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds, until the cauliflower is chopped and has a rice-like texture. You don't want to over pulse it, or it will lose that texture.
2) Repeat with the other half of the cauliflower.
3) In a pan, heat up the sesame oil.
4) Add in the frozen veggies, garlic, and onion. Let them cook for about 3-5 minutes so that the vegetables are heated.
5) Add in the cauliflower, liquid aminos, and sriracha. Mix it all together and let the mixture cook for about 5 minutes until the cauliflower is all heated up.
6) Serve and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this as much as we did! My mom said she gives it a 7 out of 5, so I might say it's pretty good. Let me know what you think in the comments below, and don't forget to subscribe!
