I have a weakness for good food and most of the time what I crave is not healthy, but this Paleo Friendly,Gluten free, Low carb treat is the perfect fake out for that fattening Chinese Takeout. What if I told you that Cauliflower fried rice tastes almost identical to the real thing? Let me say it again. Cauliflower fried rice tastes just life real fried rice. Low carb, delicious and full of flavor.
Instead of regular rice, riced cauliflower is stir fried with fresh veggies and shrimp to create a masterpiece that can rival your favorite Chinese take out fried rice. Vegetables and seafood. The perfect way to eat healthy and feel like you are cheating. You can also make this completely vegan by skipping the shrimp. All of the flavor and none of the guilt. This is so good that I ate it three days in a row. Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable because it takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with.
How awesome is that!
With so many great things to make with cauliflower, I've gone a little cauliflower crazy lately. If you missed my delicious pizza made with cauliflower crust, check it out here.
This will take you 20 minutes or less. And you will need soy sauce, sesame oil, fresh veggies and your choice of meat. I love to use shrimp or chicken.
Use uncooked cleaned and deveined jumbo shrimp, and chop some onions
Garlic, white onion and green onion add a great depth of flavor
Saute your garlic and onions until translucent and
then add the shrimp
Add your veggies
Add your eggs and scramble on the side of the skillet and then incorporate into the cauliflower, shrimp and veggies
And Voila! Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup chopped white onion
1/2 cup chopped green onion
8 oz of uncooked shrimp cleaned and deveined
1/2 cup peas and carrots
1 Bag of riced cauliflower (or 1 medium head of cauliflower if you prefer to rice it yourself)
2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 eggs beaton
salt and pepper
Heat the sesame oil in a skillet or wok. Saute the garlic and onions for a couple of minutes and then add the shrimp and cook for a minute (it will start to turn pink). Stir in the cauliflower and stir fry, add the peas and carrots to the side of the skillet, mix it into the cauliflower and continue stir frying, stir in the soy sauce and then move to the side of the skillet and scramble the eggs on the other side of the skillet. Combine the eggs into the cauliflower and shrimp.
