CAULIFLOWER FRIED RICE RECIPE
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
Cauliflower is low in carbohydrates and is incredibly nutrient dense, making it a great base for soups, purees and mashes as well as a starch replacement! Cauliflower contains powerful sulfur compounds that have the ability to protect against cancer and detoxify the body, as well as significant amounts of vitamin C, K, folate, choline, and fiber.

Makes 6 servings
1 head cauliflower, broken into florets
1 Tablespoon Coconut oil, divided
2 eggs, whisked
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, diced
3 stalks celery, diced
2 cups bok choy, stems and leaves separated, finely chopped
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 teaspoon fish sauce, we like Red Boat
2 teaspoons Tamari or Coconut Aminos
sea salt to taste
Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until rice consistency. Be careful not to over-process. You may have to do this step in batches depending on the size of your food processor.
Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add about 1 teaspoon of the coconut oil. Once melted, add the eggs and scramble, breaking up with a fork into tiny pieces. Once eggs are set, remove from the skillet and set aside.
Melt the remaining coconut oil in the skillet. Add the onion and a pinch of sea salt and sauté until translucent, then add the garlic, celery, carrot and bok choy stems. Cook, stirring occasionally until the vegetables begin to brown and soften, about 6 minutes.
Turn up the heat to medium high and add in the riced cauliflower. Sautee, stirring every minute or so until cauliflower is cooked through, about 5 minutes more. In the last minute of cooking, add in the bok choy leaves and the scrambled egg bits. Turn off the heat, then add the sesame oil, fish sauce and tamari and season to taste.
