Thyme for Thursday {Cauliflower "Fried" Rice}

Hey y'all,

Now I have never been a fan of cauliflower and really any cooked veggies so I will say I was pretty surprised when I tried out this recipe from the Skinnytaste blog and ended up liking it so much. It was very simple since I ended up snagging a bag of frozen riced cauliflower from Trader Joe's.
Ingredients:
  • 1 12oz bag of Frozen Riced Cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 small onion, diced fine
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 scallions, diced, whites and greens separated
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce, or more to taste (I'm going to try this with Coconut Aminos next time)

Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium heat. Add the olive oil and saute onions, scallion whites, peas and carrots and garlic about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft.

Raise the heat to medium-high. Add the cauliflower "rice" to the saute 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. Add the egg then remove from heat and mix in scallion greens.

I ended up sauteing zucchini, mushrooms, and more onion and added it to the rice along with some teriyaki chicken. Delicious!

  3. I've been dying to try this for a while now, but never realized you could buy the cauliflower already riced. I'll definitely be stopping by Trader Joe's when I get home!!

  5. I've never tried cauliflower rice, but it sounds great! I am a carb-aholic so this may be a healthier way for me to get a fried rice fix. Thanks for sharing!
