Today’s recipe will most be appreciated by anyone on the keto weight loss diet. The cauliflower fried rice is a low carb meal packed with vegetables. It is a great substitute for rice. It has all the traditional flavour of fried rice, but is made with cauliflower. There are also a variety of options to choose from in case you want to modify the recipe during preparation. For example, swap in different veggies such as carrots to change the flavour. Substitute the eggs and add a protein such as cooked chicken and kick up the flavour with Sriracha or hoisin sauce. With a few changes here and there, your meal may not look and taste just like the one I am sharing with you, but it will sure be worth the effort. Here is how to go about the preparation.
- 1 Large head of cauliflower
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 Onion
- 2 tablespoons Olive oil
- 115g Frozen fresh peas
- 1 Red bell pepper
- 2 eggs
- Dark soy sauce
- Salt to taste
- Spring onions
