Vegan Cauliflower Fried Rice (Veggies and Tofu)

Growing up, one of my favorite dishes when dining out at an Asian restaurant was fried rice! That is until I started making healthier choices overall, but the fried rice always had a special place in my heart. When I made the switch towards a healthier lifestyle, I swapped out the typical white rice for riced cauliflower and to my surprise it tasted as delicious! Just to clarify, there is nothing wrong with having regular fried rice every now and then as part of a balanced lifestyle, but this is an easy recipe to recreate and tastes just as good so why not enjoy it whenever? I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do, and when you recreate it please send me pictures, it makes my day! 

Ingredients: 

  • Chopped Veggies: Zucchini, Onions, Broccoli, Carrots, Mushrooms (you can choose your own veggies to your liking but onions are key for flavor)

  • Riced Cauliflower

  • Healthy Protein of Choice: Organic Extra Firm Tofu (cubed), Organic Chicken, Organic & Pasture Raised Eggs, etc.

  • Scallions

  • Sauce/Spices: Soy Sauce (or Tamari if you’re gluten free) , Toasted Sesame Oil, Coconut Aminos, Sriracha, Garlic Powder, Smoked or regular Paprika, Sesame Seeds, and Turmeric.

Instructions:

  1. Grease a hot skilled with non stick spray, and place the chopped vegetables.

  2. Let these veggies cook through on medium heat, especially until you see the onions and zucchinis get golden brown.

  3. Once the veggies are golden brown, add your protein of choice and cook the protein until it’s well done along with the vegetables.

  4. When the protein is cooked through, add the riced cauliflower and mix everything together.

  5. Add the sauce, and let all of the flavors mix well, stirring every once in a while on a medium-high temperature.

  6. Place a scoop onto a bowl and top off with chopped scallions and sesame seeds (and sometimes I like to add red pepper flakes for an extra kick), and enjoy!
