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.
- 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!
