Cauliflower Fried "Rice"



Cauliflower Fried "Rice"

This is one of my favorite all veggie meals and a great way to use up extra cauliflower and veggies. You can add whatever vegetables you have on hand and any of your favorite spices. I also like that it feels more like a meal than just eating plain veggies. I often leave out the eggs but if I want a bit of protein it is a great option. For anyone following a Paleo meal plan or anyone trying to reduce their meat intake, this would be a great meal. It's very filling!
 

Ingredients

1 medium head cauliflower, cut into florets
1/2 head broccoli
1/2 shredded carrots
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1 small zucchini
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp chili flakes
2 eggs (optional), slightly beaten
1/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce or teriyaki sauce
1 tbsp grated ginger
Salt
Pepper
sesame seeds to garnish


Instructions

  1. Throw the cauliflower into a food processor and pulse until they are the desired size (think grain of rice). 
  2. Place them in a large bowl. 
  3. Then reuse the processor bowl and do the same thing for the other veggies. 
  4. Heat a large pan over medium heat. 
  5. Add 1 -2 tbsp oil. 
  6. Throw in the veggies.  
  7. Add the ginger, garlic and chili flakes.
  8. Stir fry until cooked - about 7-10 minutes.
  9. Make a well in the centre of the veggies and add the eggs. 
  10. Stir the eggs until slightly scrambled and then mix through the veggies. 
  11. Add the sauce. 
  12. Season with salt and pepper. 
  13. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. 
  14. Serve.
