Cauliflower “Fried Rice”

This is a great option when you want a healthier side dish. If you’re one that truly misses your rice, this is perfect if you pair with grill meats so you can enjoy the flavors together.

ingredients

1 medium head (about 24 oz) cauliflower, rinsed
1 Tbsp sesame oil
2 egg whites
1 large egg
Pinch of salt
Cooking spray
1/2 small onion, finely diced
1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
2 garlic cloves, minced
5 scallions, diced, whites and greens separated
3 Tbsp soy sauce, or more to taste

directions

    1. Remove the core and let the cauliflower dry completely.
    2. Coarsely chop into florets, then place half of the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice or couscous – don’t over process or it will get mushy. Set aside and repeat with the remaining cauliflower.
    3. Combine egg and egg whites in a small bowl and beat with a fork. Season with salt.
    4. Heat a large sauté pan or wok over medium heat and spray with oil.
    5. Add the eggs and cook, turning a few times until set; set aside.
    6. Add the sesame oil and sauté onions, scallion whites, peas and carrots and garlic about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft.Raise the heat to medium-high.
    7. Add the cauliflower “rice” to the sauté pan along with soy sauce. Mix, cover and cook approximately 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.
    8. Add the egg then remove from heat and mix in scallion greens.
