Easy Homemade Cauliflower Fried Rice

So delicious and easy - plus you'll almost have no clue it’s cauliflower (but your waistline will).


Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 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

 

Directions

  1. Remove the core of the cauliflower and coarsely chop off just the florets
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. Then add the soy, sesame oil and Sriracha - mix well
  6. Finally add the beaten eggs, and stir until egg is cooked through - about another minute
  7. Remove from heat - serve and garnish with green onions.

Miso & Ginger Salad Dressing

Making your own dressings is the best - and I love this one.


INGREDIENTS

  • 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

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl, mix into a thick paste
  2. Slowly whisk in oil until the dressing is emulsified
  3. 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
  4. Add pepper to taste
  5. Use the dressing on your favorite salad, grilled vegetables or even fish.
