Mock Chinese Fried Rice

Fake rice using grated cauliflower that makes a great side when craving rice or just something different.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a wok or large flat skillet, heat enough oil to cover the bottom.
  2. Fry minced garlic (or garlic powder) with finely diced white part of onions for approximately 1 minute.
  3. Add grated cauliflower and fry for 4-5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  4. Add soy, ginger, diced green onion tops, and pre-cooked cubed meat. Stir to mix well and brown a bit. Push mixture to one side of pan.
  5. Add more oil if necessary and scramble eggs in empty side of pan until done but still moist. Stir eggs into "rice" mix and remove from heat.
  6. Note: instead of chicken can use any combination of shrimp, beef, ham, turkey or vegetables of your choice.

This is a great recipe very tasty

Basically 6 points per serving - not a significant caloric savings over real fried rice, especially if you use brown rice (4 points/cup). I do advocate using cauliflower as a meat substitute in chili - turns red, looks like meat, and adds some chewy texture without altering the taste.

Just made it tonight and it was great. I recommend adding a splash of sesame oil, plus red and green peppers.
What a great idea! Now I know what to make when I'm craving chinese!

this is all fine and dandy... but how is this for the introduction phase??? that's way too many carbs.

I think the nutritional info is wrong on this recipe. Where is the sugar coming from that it says it has? I think this would be good for induction.

Sounds great for South beach! Cauliflower can be used in a lot of different ways for cutting carbs. I like it mashed with Smartbalance and lemon pepper too!
