Cauliflower Fried Rice

Cauliflower Fried Rice

This recipe can be a bit time consuming, so set aside a bit more time than usual to prep the ingredients. I was really craving fried rice so I found this recipe.

  • 1 cup minced carrots
  • 1 cups ½minced mushrooms
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower (riced (approximately 5 cups))
  • 1 cup minced onion
  • 1/2 cup green onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 chicken (thighs (bones and skin removed and cut into tiny pieces)
  • 4 tbsp avocado oil
  • cup ¼coconut aminos

Marinade

  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos

  1. Mix the marinade ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. In a larger container, add the marinade to the chicken and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours.
  3. While the chicken marinates, mince the carrots and mushrooms using a blender.
  4. Heat 3 tbsp of avocado (or coconut) oil in a wok. Scramble the eggs until firm, then remove and set aside.
  5. Add 1 tbsp of avocado oil to the wok and then add the onion, carrots, and mushrooms. Sauté for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Create a pocket in the centre of the wok, add a quarter-sized drop of avocado oil, and then add the chicken.
  7. Sauté for 5-6 minutes, then drizzle in the ¼ cup coconut aminos and continue sautéing for another minute.
  8. Add the “green onion and stir.
  9. Add in the cauliflower rice and mix vigorously.
  10. Finally, dice up the eggs, add them to the wok and stir.
  11. Serve with a little extra coconut aminos and/or red chili paste on the side for a little extra.

What is coconut aminos?
It would best describe this ingredient as a coconut based soy-sauce. It’s perfect for any ingredient that calls for soy-sauce or oyster sauce. I don’t use it a lot but its a great ingredient to keep in your pantry for a low carb diet.
