Cauliflowers are great replacement for rice, if you are on a low-calorie diet, or simply wanting to add more whole foods to your meals. It is a staple recipe for those who are on a ketogenic diet. This recipe is a dish on its own, but also great to pair with meat and seafood mains. Without meat, it is also an excellent addition to a vegan, vegetarian, even a paleo diet. Let’s get started!
2 frozen bags of Cauliflower
6 to 10 florets of frozen Broccoli
3/4 cup frozen or canned peas
1 medium-sized carrot, thinly sliced
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 bunch of spring onions, chopped
2 chicken breasts
salt & pepper to taste
2 tbsp. sesame oil
2 to 3 tbsp soy sauce
Put frozen Cauliflower in food processor, and use pulses to slowly chop it to small rice-size pieces.
Prepare chicken breast by seasoning with salt and pepper, and frying in a pan for about 5 to 10 minutes on each side. Shred the meat into small bite-size pieces (leave out for vegan version).
In the same pan, add the oil, cauliflower, and minced garlic. Sauté together for 10 to 15 minutes. Break 1 egg (leave out for vegan version) into the pan, and scramble it in. Add the spring onions, peas, carrots, broccoli, and chicken, making sure to stir frequently.
Add soy sauce and cook for about 5 more minutes or until the veggies have reached your desired crunch. You can drizzle on 1 to 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and sesame oil to add flavor to your liking. Add pepper or Sriracha if you are in the mood for a little spice. Serve on a plate and dig in!
