I’m in the middle of facilitating and participating in a workplace weight loss competition so I’m extra inspired these days. I’ve had these two bags of frozen riced cauliflower sitting in my freezer for about 2 months now and I finally found the courage to use it. This recipe touts low carb, nutrient-dense, and moderate protein vegetables.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Ingredients

  • 2- 10 oz bags frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken, cooked & shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrots
  • 4 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 cup shelled frozen edamame
  • 1 small bag frozen chopped broccoli
  • 5 green onions, minced
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup or more of low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp red pepper flakes, optional

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat sesame oil over medium low heat. Sauté garlic and carrots for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add frozen cauliflower, frozen edamame, and frozen broccoli. Stir to combine. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. *This accelerates the thawing process by creating convection.
  3. Lift lid, add chicken, green onion, soy sauce, ginger, and remaining sesame oil. Stir to combine. Cook, uncovered, until heated through.

Feel free to add a little more soy sauce to each serving.
