Cauliflower “fried rice”

This is not the first time I have talked about cauliflower rice. As a matter of fact, one of my first posts years ago was about cauliflower rice. My pictures then were terrible and improperly embedded. I should go back and fix them, but its a food blog and who cares. Also, this recipe is better, as we must constantly be getting better at life, or what’s the point?

And I am gonna give you the full chicken and vegetable stir fry recipe that went on top of this rice as well, and now you know where all that CSA goodness went to.

Makes – 4 servings

Nutrition – YES. You can feel awesome about yourself after eating this. Albeit gassy.

Whatcha need –

Rice:
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
1 TB coconut oil
1 TB spicy sesame oil
1 head cauliflower cleaned and chopped in to chunks
1 bunch turnips peeled and cut in to chunks
Broccoli stems from one head (I kept the treetops for the stirfry)
1 green and one red jalapeno
1 cherry bomb pepper
1 bunch cilantro
1 TB ginger
2 cloves garlic
juice of 1 lime

Stirfry:
1 TB coconut oil
1 TB spicy sesame oil
1 head’s worth of broccoli tree tops
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
2 bok choy
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb chicken tenders chopped (or tofu or whatever you want)
1/2 cup chicken broth

Optional sauce:
1 TB grated ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
1/8 cup black vinegar
1/8 cup soy sauce or tamari

What To Do:

First we will make the rice, in case that’s all your after. You can keep this in the fridge to put under leftovers or eat as a side, its a good thing to have handy for when you are starving and don’t want to inhale potato chips. Heat the first three ingredients in a wok while chucking everything else in to a food processor. Pulse until its all yummy confetti-like and throw it in the wok and heat, stirring for about 20 minutes. You want everything to be cooked but still firm. Set aside.

Then for the stir fry, heat your oil and add the chicken and broth, stirring until chicken is almost cooked. Then add peppers and cook for 2-3 minutes, then bok choy, then treetops. Cook until done! Now, you can throw this on top of rice and eat as is, (esp if you are on a cleanse where you cant have vinegar, OR you can stir the sauce ingredients together in a bowl and add to the mix.

Now you’re healthy and full. YOU’RE WELCOME!

XOXO
