Cauliflower Fried Rice


This is a low-carb option for those who want all the flavor of Chinese fried rice but none of the guilt. I’m generally not one to make “MOCK” anything, but this trend was on my bucket list and it was requested for a private cooking class. 

Time to check that off the list!

You can buy pre-riced cauliflower or make it yourself. Just cut the cauliflower into florets and pulse a few at a time in the food processor until it resembles rice. Putting in too many at once will cause you to over-process it. 

For some extra shazam factor in this dish, add General Tso’s sauce. 

I knew that would get you.
