Some folks have written in asking about recipes using that big jar o’cauliflower rice I made in my last video, “The fastest way to rice cauliflower.” One of my favorite ways to use up that large jar of raw “riced” cauliflower is to make a quick and basic stir-fried rice recipe that I enjoy during my mid-week lunch breaks after my workouts. It is fast and flavorful and a good foundation recipe for adding vegetables, meats, seafoods, nuts, more heat- spice wise, and other seasonings. Please feel free to get creative and add ingredients according to your dietary needs. For example vegetarians and vegans, you will enjoy this dish using coconut, avocado, or olive oil in place of the bacon fat, or vegans you may do without the egg but be sure to add the soy sauce at the very end, in fact, take that skillet off the heat so your flavoring sauce doesn’t sizzle away.
Try stir-frying a variety of veggies in your pan until tender-crisp, remove from pan and stir-fry your cauliflower as explained in the video. Add your egg wash with soy sauce- try adding red pepper flakes or 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil to the mixture. Once it is stir-fried into your cauliflower, add the veggies back to the pan and heat through. If you would like to add meat, sear first, remove from pan, and add at the end after the egg mixture has been stir-fried in, being sure to cook a little longer until the meat is cooked through. Nice garnishes are chopped nuts, sprouts, more green onion slices, or cilantro. I hope you get the idea of how flexible this dish can be. Enjoy!
This is one of the basic stir-fried cauli rice recipe I will be eating along side the Wok Wednesday recipes.
- 2 cups “riced” cauliflower
- 2 Tbs bacon grease or coconut, avocado, or olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbs coconut aminos or soy sauce
- 1 green onion sliced, green and white parts
- In a medium skillet, over medium high to high heat, heat oil.
- Add cauliflower rice and stir-fry, stirring continually for 8 minutes or until cauliflower is browned and tender.
- Whisk egg and coconut aminos together and pour over cauli mixture.
- Stir-fry the egg mixture for 1 minute, and add the green onion, reserving a bit for garnish.
- Stir-fry another minute.
- Garnish with green onion and serve immediately.
Note: Coconut Aminos is an alternative to soy sauce in the paleo lifestyle. It can be found at Whole Foods or other health food stores. Buy it up when it goes on sale! It is a fizzy liquid, so by sure it does not tip over in your car after buying it- trust me, it leaks!
Here is another recipe using the “riced” cauliflower- Lemon Couscous Pilaf.
