FRIED CAULIFLOWER RICE WITH LOTS OF CHICKEN AND VEGETABLES – FOR A LOW CARB, KETO AND HEALTHIER OPTION! SUPER EASY RECIPE. COMES TOGETHER SO QUICK. AS GOOD AS IT GETS IF YOU ARE CRAVING FRIED RICE WHILE BEING ON A LOW CARB HIGH FAT DIET!
I feel like a beating drum when I talk about rice. I miss rice. No matter how ‘brave’ I try to look in front of my husband when it comes to the topic of cravings, deep down (well, almost beneath the first layer of pretending!) I die a little bit inside when I see someone eating rice. I miss it a lot!
And then I saw on Pinterest, Facebook and every other social media, how people are going crazy about Cauliflower rice, also called Cauli Rice. And I obviously couldn’t wait to try it!
Now, there are a couple of ways you could go about it. First method is to take a head of cauliflower, chop it into florets and then pulse it in a food processor till you get very very tiny pieces of cauliflower. The important thing is not to over do this. You definitely don’t want a cauliflower paste! And then you can either steam the ‘rice’ for 5 minutes or dunk them in boiling water for 2 minutes or even pop them into a microwave for 2-3 minutes till the become slightly tender. You DO NOT want to overdo this step as well. Keep in mind, since the cauliflower now is really tiny, it won’t take long for it to cook. You would still want it to have a little bit of bite to it.
The second method is to skip everything I said above till the food processor bit and instead buy a bag of ‘riced’ cauliflower from your local grocery store! Easy peasy. And then you can steam it, or boil it or microwave it to cook them halfway through.
Now let us talk about the versatility of Cauliflower ‘rice’. You could make fried rice with just some garlic and butter. Or you could do just as I did. Some spicy chicken and some vegetables of your choice! You can experiment with spices and sauces, but if you are eating keto, make sure the sauces are keto approved.
So let me be honest. Though, Cauliflower rice is a consolation for the normal rice, it does not taste anything like it. But still, I enjoy the taste and sometimes, it helps to fool your mind! Haha!
Now without further ado, let us get right to the recipe.
I hope you liked this recipe. Trust me, it is worth spending time in the kitchen!
Humor me, and try it once!
