Cauliflower Fried "Rice"



 I started following a paleo diet about a month ago - not necessarily to lose weight, but simply to live a healthier lifestyle. I love the results: I feeling great, have more energy, and slimming down a few pounds is always a nice bonus. But rest assured, not all of my recipes shared here on the blog will turn healthy/paleo - I will continue cooking delicious pastas & baking sinful desserts to share! I still enjoy my cheat meal once a week (and fully indulge with no regrets!) but my weeknight dinners are filled with veggies & protein. I stumbled across this cauliflower fried "rice" recipe which is ideal for Meatless Mondays. It's so easy to make and tastes even better than Chinese takeout. 

Ingredients
1 head of cauliflower (about 2 1/2 cups chopped in a food processor)
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 onion, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
6 large carrots, chopped
2-3 tablespoons soy sauce (vary depending on taste)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons scallions, chopped

Directions
{1}
Rinse & chop the cauliflower into florets and put in a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is tiny and resembles rice.
{2}
Preheat a large skillet on medium heat. Drizzle sesame oil and add onion, peas & carrots, and fry until tender.
{3}
Slide veggies around to the sides of the pan and pour eggs in the center. Using a spatula, scramble the eggs. Once cooked, combine with the onion, peas and carrots.
{4}
Add the cauliflower to the veggie and egg mixture. Add scallions. Pour soy sauce on top and stir fry until heated through and cauliflower is tender. Serve warm & enjoy!
