Cauliflower Fried Rice

Posted in : Wheat Free on by : Nicole

As a matter of food prep in our house – “white food” is not eaten. No rice, no potatoes, no bread, no milk… you get the idea.

As you have seen, we go with other less “evil” options – jicama or cauliflower!

Recently we have been toying with the idea of moving/selling our house, so it’s a challenge to “eat” all the things in the house – i have an extensive panty, and an extra freezer… so we have some work to do. I’m also kind of a hoarder… especially of specialty meat etc- “gotta save it for a special occasion”. So we have plenty of chorizo in all manner, but also the normal bacon etc saved for special occasions! So when it came time to start using up the cauliflower there were many constraints in this iron chef:

  • Ingredients must be in the house
  • Hubby doesn’t like the taste of cauliflower, so however this is cooked it must mask that
  • Hubby doesn’t really like onion or veggies in his fried rice (sigh)

ok go!

Challenge accepted!

We had the riced cauliflower in the freezer, eggs in the fridge, plenty of chorizo – we were ready!

Cauliflower Fried Rice
To make the most acceptable fried rice in this household, i take away a significant portion of the healthiness. 
Ingredients
  1. Meat (1/2 -1 pound bacon, chorrizo hard or soft)
  2. 1 bag of riced frozen cauliflower
  3. 2 eggs (lightly scrambled)
  4. Soy sauce (or liquid aminos) 1-2 tbl
Optional
  1. Frozen peas
  2. Frozen peas and carrots
  3. Frozen chopped green beans

If you don’t have Buy Me a Pie! app installed you’ll see the list with ingredients right after downloading it
Instructions
  1. Fry up the meat - bacon, chorizo, anything that will make a bit of grease. (i did say healthy was out the window). Remove from pan but leave drippings.
  2. Microwave the bag-o-cauliflower for 5 minutes, drain (i cut off a corner just so the water can escape)
  3. Add in cauliflower, stir in the drippings. Allow to cook for 20 minutes or so, stirring. This leaves the cauliflower with a nice crispy texture and no longer has a cauliflower taste to annoy the hubby.
  4. If using add the veggies that you like - frozen peas, carrots, green beans.
  5. Add the meat back in - stir until warm
  6. Make a well in the middle, pour in the eggs
  7. Allow to cook a little, move the edges
  8. When ready stir to combine with the cauliflower
  9. Pour in the soy sauce or replacement, stir to combine.
  10. Enjoy
Notes
  1. This is also a nice dish for the grill, you can make most on the stove top, (up to adding in the eggs) then bring your pan to the grill, to continue to cook off the liquid from the cauliflower.
  2. When meat/meal on the grill is almost complete, finish from the eggs portion on.

Recently I found frozen riced cauliflower. (prob a little too much plastic in the packaging than necessary, but the ability to create quickish rice dishes almost balances it out). By the packaging you really think it’s a big old bag to take out what you want, but it is 4 individualized bags
