Cauliflower rice has become a huge trend lately, and for good reason! It’s super easy to make (or buy) and SO healthy. It has less impact on blood sugar levels than regular rice and when paired with other veggies, it makes a nourishing meal for the whole family!
I’m a sucker for fried rice. I remember going to a local Chinese restaurant when I was young and always ordering the fried rice. I can’t imagine all the crap that was in it, but it was SO good.
Since I created this recipe over time, I’m in love with this healthier version. The kids even love it. I serve it by itself or pair with pastured chicken breasts, grilled wild caught salmon, or grass fed steak. It’s a perfect side dish! #momwin
Okay, enough about that. Let’s do this:
5 Tbsp of Avocado oil or Ghee
3 garlic cloves, diced, chopped, or pressed
1 small head of cauliflower (or prepared cauliflower rice)
1/2 small red onion chopped
1/2 leek (optional), chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
2 celery stalks, shopped
2 carrots, chopped
1/2 cup fresh basil, lightly packed
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, lightly packed
2 pasture-raised eggs
2 tbsp Bragg’s Aminos or Organic Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Coconut Aminos (optional)
Salt & Pepper
Greens or Sprouts
Press, chop, or dice garlic and set aside for 10 minutes (this activates the healing properties). Clean and dry cauliflower. Cut stem and leaves off. Chop florets and place into food processor. Process until cauliflower resembles rice. Do not over process. Heat 2 tbsp of oil or ghee in large sauteing pan. Once heated add onions, leeks, and bell peppers. Allow to cook for 4-5 minutes on medium heat. Add in the additional veggies; celery, carrots, and fresh herbs. Allow to cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
Move all veggies to the side of the pan and add 2 tbsp of oil or ghee to the cleared side. Add the cauliflower rice and stir to heat and cook for 3 minutes.
Combine cauliflower rice and veggies.
Allow to cook for 3 more minutes. Create a hole in the middle of the dish. Put the last tbsp of oil or ghee into the middle of the dish. Allow to melt. Crack the eggs into the center and scramble gently.
Allow eggs to heat and begin to cook (about 1 minute).
Still runny but cooked, stir the eggs into the entire dish and mix well. Allow the dish to cook for an additional 3-4 minutes. Add in Aminos or soy sauce, coconut aminos, and salt and pepper to taste.
Serve and eat immediately. Place greens and/or sprouts on top. Feel free to add more aminos and a clean version of hot sauce. Great with a side of fermented sauerkraut or kimchi. Enjoy!
