How to Make Not Your Grandma's Fried Rice
- Clean and trim cauliflower, and break into florets. Place several florets into the bowl of a blender or food processor. Pulse until the florets are broken into "rice" size bits. Empty the rice into a large bowl, set aside, and repeat until all the cauliflower is riced. This will probably take two to three batches.
- In a large, heavy, no-stick skillet, over med-high heat, warm the coconut oil until it melts, add the olive oil, then add the cauliflower rice. Stir the rice until it's mostly all coated in the oil. It will be shiny.
Cover the skillet, and allow the rice to cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Reduce heat to medium, then stir in sesame oil and fish sauce, onion and garlic. Cook, covered, two or three more minutes.
- Stir in soy sauce and salt and pepper, then add the frozen peas and carrots over the top. Cover. Cook another three to five minutes, until vegetables are thawed and rice is tender (but not mushy).
Stir and serve.
* Use wheat-free soy sauce, or substitute coconut aminos.
1) We served this with Teriyaki chicken and it was awesome! Also great with my Paleo Crockpot Broccoli Beef. Next week I'm going to try it (different seasonings) with my beef stroganoff -- can't wait :)
2) One nice, dense head of cauliflower makes a LOT of rice! But the recipe is easy to halve for a smaller family/group -- just watch the cook times.
3) This recipe will happily adapt to whatever additional vegetables and/or seasonings you'd like, egg, even bits of leftover ham, turkey, or chicken, for a main dish.
This is a Paleo-friendly recipe
