A healthy and nutritious Cauliflower Fried rice that is colorful, filling and great to pack in the lunch box.
Today is the last day for my ‘Lunch box’ theme and I have a filling and colorful Cauliflower fried rice. This dish is actually made with cauliflower rice instead of real rice. It is a colorful, veggie packed dish that is great to pack in the lunch box.Cauliflower rice has become quite popular recently and I finally got on the band wagon. I bought frozen cauliflower rice, but it can very easily be made at home. Just pulse cauliflower florets until they are small and resemble rice. Cauliflower rice can be used to substitute regular rice in any rice based dish. It is quick cooking and tastes delicious.
This recipe is from Martha Stewart site and I loved how colorful it looked. It didn’t have any spices, so I wasn’t sure if it was going to taste too bland for my taste. But I was pleasantly surprised that the dish tasted amazing. Ginger and garlic cooked in coconut oil adds the most amazing flavor to this dish.It is a simple every day dish that is quick and easy to make. Add whatever veggies you have on hand. I added edamame to boost the protein in the dish and make it a one pot meal. Chickpeas, paneer, tofu or scrambled eggs would be great to add as well. If you crave for carbs, then use this as a filling for your wrap or sandwich.
