It's been a minute since I've shared a recipe. But I'm here today sharing a great side dish….Cauliflower Fried Rice. We love Asian food and I wanted to lighten up one of my favorite rice dishes so I could eat more carbs in other ways than rice (I'm looking at you popcorn and graham crackers). Cauliflower rice is a great substitute for regular steamed rice. When it's mixed with other ingredients, it's just as good as regular rice in my book. You can also stir in some steamed rice with this too. Since my kids will eat bowls and bowls of steamed rice, so I usually cook that up – and make cauliflower rice too. Winning for everyone!
This pairs well with grilled chicken, pork, or whatever other protein you'd like.
- 1 teaspoon avocado oil
- 175 g yellow onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 350 g riced cauliflower (freezer section)
- 175 g carrots, thinly sliced (or shoe string)
- 175 g broccoli flowerets, cut into bite size pieces
- 125 g frozen green peas
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- Salt (or garlic salt) & pepper to taste
- Optional garnish (not included in macros): green onion, cilantro, sesame seeds, cashews, etc.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent. Add garlic and cook stirring another 30 to 60 seconds. Add the cauliflower, carrots, broccoli and green peas to the skillet. Add a few tablespoons of water if need to steam and cook the vegetables. Once the veggies are tender crisp or have reached your desired “done-ness” add the salt, pepper, sesame oil and soy sauce. Stir to combine. Top with optional garnishes
This would be great served with a side of grilled chicken or other protein. Enjoy!
