How To Make Paleo Cauliflower Fried Rice
Good news for you, this paleo cauliflower fried rice is incredibly easy to make. Now, the key to making great cauliflower rice is not overcooking it. Mushy cauliflower rice is pretty darn gross if you ask me. So, to make this vegetarian cauliflower fried rice you will need to first rice your cauliflower. Many stores actually carry pre-made riced cauliflower so to save yourself some time I recommend grabbing yourself a bag or two. However, if you can’t find pre-made riced cauliflower, all you need to do is throw some cauliflower florets into your food processor and and pulse until you have rice sized pieces. Then you can finely chop the rest of the vegetables so that all of your ingredients are ready to use. Next you will put a large pan on the stove and turn it on to medium heat. Add the coconut oil and allow it to melt. Then, add the broccoli, carrots, peppers and green onion to the pan and cook them for approximately 10 minutes, until the vegetables are the consistency you desire. While the vegetables are cooking, mix the sauce ingredients together in a glass measuring cup or bowl. Then add the riced cauliflower and the sauce to the pan and stir everything well to combine. Cook for another 15-20 minutes and that’s it. You’re ready to serve and enjoy this paleo cauliflower fried rice!
