As winter approaches, it is a great time to test new recipes and experiment with adding your favorite ingredients to create your own healthy, unique dish. Lately, I have been on a cauliflower kick, and have loved using cauliflower in place of traditional starches I would use in recipes such as pizza, pasta, and rice. Not only is cauliflower almost identical in taste, but it also packs an extra nutrient punch into all sorts of recipes. It’s versatility makes it easy to cook with, and you can easily switch things up by adding new sauces, veggies, and/or proteins.
The other day when we were off of school, I wanted to make some kind of stir fry, but realized we were out of the typical ingredients I would use. So, I decided to make a homemade fried rice with similar flavors, and ended up coming up with this recipe.
This cauliflower fried rice tastes just like traditional fried rice, and can easily be customized with your favorite add-ins. So, please enjoy, and let me know what you think!
