Cauliflower Fried Rice

Instead of the spiralized craze, I am thinking of starting a new “ricing” craze. You can turn vegetables (especially cauliflower) into a rice like texture to use instead of rice? Any thoughts? Actually I haven’t tested this technique on anything but cauliflower yet… but I’ll keep you posted.

For this cauliflower fried rice recipe I am using one of my favorite new products that I have shared with you before-frozen riced cauliflower from trader joes. It’s so quick and easy and cuts down prep time by a lot!

This recipe packs a lot of veggies! The cauliflower base provides a full cup and in addition I added another 1.5 cups per serving. 2.5 cups of veggies-that’s more than many Americans eat in day let alone one sitting. Carrots, Mushrooms, and Edamame are some usual suspects in fried rice so those are the veggies features in this recipe.I added some shrimp for protein in addition to the egg to make this one well rounded dish!

One note: soy sauce even low-sodium has a lot of sodium! One tablespoon of low-sodium soy sauce had 460 mgs! Try not to add more than the recipe calls for!
