You know it’s a good day when you can gobble up an entire bowl of rice without any guilt or hesitation. Not just any type of rice, but the very efficient – Cauliflower rice.
This paleo fad is a healthy take on the monotonous bowl of rice, giving it a complete healthy makeover with just the same taste and texture. Fluffy and tender like couscous, this super-food which is a part of the cruciferous family is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, but most importantly contains a cancer-fighting compound known as glucosinolates. Served with a protein ( eggs / tofu ) & a drizzle of soy sauce, brighten up your day with the perfect blend of healthy yet hearty.
- 1 medium-sized head of cauliflower
- 2 tablespoons Healthy Alternatives sesame oil
- 1 large carrot, cubed
- 6 green onions, minced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 red chillies, chopped
- 1 tablespoon ginger, crushed
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 2 beaten eggs (use scrambled tofu for vegan)
- 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
Shred the cauliflower using the grater or pulsing some rough cut pieces in a food processor; the end product should resemble tiny grains of rice.
Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large pan over medium-low heat. Add the carrots and garlic, and stir fry until fragrant for about 5-7 minutes. Add the grated cauliflower, edamame, and remaining sesame oil to the pan. Stir fry quickly to cook the cauliflower to a soft texture.
Make a well in the middle of the rice, turn the heat down, and add the eggs. Stir gently and continuously until the eggs are fully cooked. Stir in the soy sauce and green onions just before serving.
