So delicious and easy - plus you'll almost have no clue it’s cauliflower (but your waistline will).
- 1 medium head (about 24 oz) cauliflower, rinsed
- 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- ½ cup red onions, diced small
- ½ cup red bell peppers, diced small
- 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons Sriracha
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 tablespoons diced green onion
- Remove the core of the cauliflower and coarsely chop off just the florets
- Put the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice - shouldn’t take more than 5 or 6 seconds, but if it’s a lot of cauliflower for your processor, do it in 2 batches or it can get mushy.
- Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium heat with 1 tablespoon oil then add onions, peppers and mushrooms; stir and cook about 5 minutes.
- Stir in ginger and garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds) then add the cauliflower rice - drizzle with a little more oil, and stir frequently until all is heated through and beginning to get a bit of color - maybe 3 minutes
- Then add the soy, sesame oil and Sriracha - mix well
- Finally add the beaten eggs, and stir until egg is cooked through - about another minute
- Remove from heat - serve and garnish with green onions.
Not to be a broken record…but these are totally simple & delicious.
- 1 large sweet potato, rinsed (no need to peel)
- 2 teaspoons neutral oil - like vegetable or avocado
- ½ teaspoon each Kosher salt and pepper
- 1 teaspoon cumin and/or curry powder
- 1 teaspoon curry powder, optional
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Spiralize sweet potato using the small noodle blade, then place the spiralized potato in a large mixing bowl
- Add oil, salt, pepper and cumin and/or curry powder if using (which you should be) to the potatoes and mix well so the seasonings incorporate evenly
- Place spiralized potatoes on a baking sheet and bake 20-30 minutes (toss fries halfway through) or until nice and golden brown
Making your own dressings is the best - and I love this one.
- ¼ cup light miso paste
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- ½ cup neutral oil (I used avocado oil for this one, canola or vegetable works well too)
- 2-3 tablespoons of water
- Honey (optional)
- Fresh ground pepper to taste
- Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl, mix into a thick paste
- Slowly whisk in oil until the dressing is emulsified
- Add 1 tablespoon water at a time to thin dressing to your liking - at this point you can add a little honey if you want on the sweeter side
- Add pepper to taste
- Use the dressing on your favorite salad, grilled vegetables or even fish.
