Veggie Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

Veggie Cauliflower Fried "Rice"

Whenever I think about eating vegetables, I always forget about fried rice. It’s so versatile in the sense that you can pretty much add any veggies, a splash of soy sauce, some garlic, and you’re meal is ready! In an attempt to make something healthier for this new meal plan I’m testing, I remembered how versatile cauliflower was! I did some research to make sure I wasn’t crazy in making cauliflower into “rice” and once I found that a lot of people were doing it I thought, what the heck, count me in.

Guys, I love this recipe. It’s pretty much 100% veggies which makes it so easy to get multiple servings of veggies at one time. Not to mention, I don’t even miss the rice! The cauliflower has a crunchy but soft texture, and all the veggies add their own flavors to the mix. My family loves Chinese food so I can’t wait to make this for them and see if they notice a difference!

This entire recipe took me about 15 minutes to make which makes it perfect for those quick dinners. It also freezes really well! All I did was separate it into little baggies and popped them in the freezer. Then the night before, I put one in the fridge to defrost and heat it up the next day to enjoy!
