Cauliflower Fried Rice

Ever have a craving for fried rice but don’t want all the carbs? I’ve been making some healthier food choices lately and one of them has been to use more vegetables in my cooking. Cauliflower rice to the rescue! It’s healthy and takes away all the unhealthy attributes of rice and substitutes it with the endless benefits of cauliflower. Enjoy 🙂

Time:

  • Prep time – 15 minutes
  • Cook time – 20 minutes

Ingredients: 

  • Cauliflower florets – from one head of cauliflower
  • Low sodium soy sauce – 2 tbsp
  • Toasted Sesame Oil – 1 tbsp

  • Carrot (Cut into small cubes) – 1
  • Green Bell Pepper (Diced) – 1

Method: 

  1. To prepare the cauliflower rice, pulse the cauliflower florets in a food processor until it resembles rice. If you do not have a food processor grate the cauliflower until it looks like rice.
  2. In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, ginger, and white pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a small skillet, heat 1 tbsp of the canola oil on low heat. Add the beaten eggs and let it cook through. Once cooked, cut into strips and set aside.

  5. Heat 1 tbsp of the canola oil in a large wok and set the temperature to medium-high. Add the onion, carrots, and garlic and saute until the onions are translucent.
  6. Add the bell peppers and saute for 3 minutes.
  7. Add the cooked peas and corn and mix well.
