This Grain Free Paleo "Fried Rice" is a flavorful alternative to this beloved take-out dish! It's also Whole30 and Soy Free!
Recently, our friends, Matt and Audry, visited Thailand and brought us home a cookbook, Rawfully Good: Living Flavours of Southeast Asia. A recipe I saw in this book gave me the inspiration I needed for this cauliflower Fried Rice! I'm starting to think of cauliflower as the miracle vegetable.
The beauty of this dish is not only it's ease, but versatility. While I recommend you try my combo, if there's one veggie or another that you don't care for, sub it for something else or double up another. You can also choose to leave off the meat and/or egg.
While I grew up eating Chinese food, you wouldn't typically find me with a bowl of fried rice. Really I was just too involved with mandarin chicken and crab rangoons to even give it a once over. I know now that I was severely under appreciating the dish. Cauliflower has given me the opportunity to give fried rice the love it truly deserves. Please, do the same.
