VEGGIES: Cauliflower Fried Rice

I love carbs. All of the carbs. But they aren’t very good for me. Except for the donut ones of course…

We have been trying to cut carbs out of our diet where we can. An easy way to do that is to completely eliminate rice. I have been able to do so since we found Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower. I now understand the CRAZE!

We had been craving Asian cuisine so I made Cauliflower Fried Rice! It is chock full of vegetables and so easy to make.

VEGGIES: Cauliflower Fried Rice

Ingredients:

Trader Joe’s Frozen Riced Cauliflower, 1 bag

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (“EVOO”), 3 tablespoons

Zucchini, 1, cubed

Baby Carrots, 6, diced

Onion, 1 small, diced

Garlic, 1 large clove, minced

Egg, 1, whisked

Soy Sauce, 1/2 cup

Trader Joe’s Sesame Oil, 1 tablespoon

Garlic Powder, 1 teaspoon

Directions:

  1. Prep all of the vegetables.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil and garlic powder. Whisk together and set aside.
  3. Heat Le Creuset Skillet on the stovetop at medium heat. Add the EVOO.
  4. Once the EVOO is shimmering, add the onion and garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent and the garlic is fragrant.
  5. Add the carrots and zucchini. Sauté until slightly softened.
  6. Slowly add the riced cauliflower to the skillet. Once all of the larger pieces have broken apart, add the sauce to the skillet.
  7. Mix until fully combined.
  8. Push everything to one side of the skillet. Pour the egg on the empty side.
  9. Allow the egg to cook through. Once cooked, mix everything together until everything is evenly distributed.
  10. Serve immediately!

  1. I’m right there with you with trying to cut down on carbs… But seriously why are all the best foods carbs?! I also recently made a stir fry with the cauliflower rice and it’s amazing!!!! I might never make rice at home again! I love when healthy options still taste good! Have you tried zuchinni noodles? So good with pesto!
