Low Carb Cauliflower Fried Rice
This delicious recipe for Low Carb Cauliflower Fried Rice is vegan and friendly to the Mediterranean diet as well.
- 5 cups Cauliflower - grated into rice (see post for details)
- 1 ½ tbsp Canola Oil - see post for alternatives
- 2 Eggs -whipped or beaten
- ½ tbsp Ginger -grated or minced
- 3 tsp Garlic - minced
- ½ cup Peas
- ½ cup Carrots -chopped into cubes
- 3 tbsp Soy Sauce
Prepare your cauliflower by grating it. You can do this in batches in a food processor, Vitamix Blender or similar strong blender or using a simple grater Preheat a large skillet or a wok on medium-high heat along with ½ tablespoon of the oil.
Add the eggs to the skillet and cook until scrambled. Transfer the eggs to a clean plate. Next, add the remaining oil to the skillet along with the ginger, garlic, and vegetables. Cook this until the vegetable appear to become tender- a couple of minutes
Stir in the cauliflower, reduce the heat to medium, and cover. You will need to stir as needed. When the cauliflower seems tender (5-8 minutes) stir in the soy sauce and then the eggs. Remove from heat and serve. Feel free to add additional sauce as needed.
As mentioned, the cauliflower should be prepared by first removing the florets from the stem and then discarding of the center (or sharing it with your compost like I like to do :) ). The florets should be trimmed to a one to one and a half inch size.
Also mentioned, this recipe can be made in a food processor.
However, I am a huge fan of my Vitamix Blender and like to use that sometimes. Folks without a food processor or strong blender can try using a simple grater instead.
