healthy fried rice with cauliflower.


I love this easy-to-make veggie "fried" rice. It uses absolutely no oil and is loaded with veggies. You can scale down the ingredient amounts if you don't need 15 servings. :)

I paired this side dish with teriyaki steak but it would be super simple to make this a main course by adding cooked chicken, pork, or steak.

Ingredients:
  • 4 cups cauliflower
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 5 cups cooked brown rice 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup defrosted vegetable blend (peas, corn, green beans, carrots)
  • 3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
Preparation
  1. Steam cauliflower
  2. Chop cauliflower finely, using a blender or food processor. (Don't puree though, otherwise it'll look like mashed potatoes)
  3. In a frying pan, add broth and bring it to a light boil. 
  4. Once broth has began to simmer add your cooked rice, cauliflower, and vegetable blend.
  5. Once the rice mixture has soaked up the broth add your soy sauce,  pepper, cinnamon, and brown sugar. 
  6. Let the rice cook on low. (while egg cooks)
  7. While the rice is cooking, scramble up the egg in a separate pan. 
  8. Add cooked egg to the rice mixture and stir.
  9. It is ready to serve!
