Cauliflower Fried Rice | Better Than Take-Out!

No More Chinese Take-Out

Let’s put it out there right now – we all miss take-out, especially Chinese food, and that’s okay. So what exactly does take-out entail? You call up a restaurant, place your order, wait anywhere from 35 to 90 minutes, scarf down greasy, over done, and most of the time sub-par food before falling deep into a food coma full of regret. Sound familiar?

Preparation

To prepare this dish you don’t need a fancy wok or any unpronounceable ingredients. Take out any skillet you own, veggies of your choosing, a couple eggs, soy sauce and sesame oil. That’s it, we promise! Now, the secret to the “rice” aspect is cauliflower, as you may have guessed from the title. To get it to a rice consistency you want to process it. If you don’t have a processor you can also grate it! Once your cauliflower is processed all you have to do it throw it in the skillet and let it crisp up! Simple, right?

Cauliflower Fried Rice – Make it Crispy!

Once it’s crisp, after about 10 minutes, you toss in the garlic, onion and veggies and cook it down for another 10 minutes. You may be nervous about adding the eggs, but seriously, don’t be. Once you do it you realize how easy it is! You just crack the eggs one at a time in the bottom of the skillet and mix in with the rice. Now, just add soy sauce, sesame oil, and combine. Garnish with sesame seeds and you’ve just created low carb Chinese take-out, and you didn’t have to wait 90 minutes to get it!
