Cauliflower “Fried Rice” (PKU-Friendly)


1 medium head Cauliflower, raw
1 Tbsp. Sesame oil
1 large Carrots, raw (peeled and cut into half moons)
8 ounces Green beans (common green beans)(trimmed and cut into 1" pieces)
2 clove Garlic, raw (minced)
1 Tbsp. Ginger root, raw (peeled and minced)
1 Tbsp. Coriander (cilantro) leaves, raw (roughly chopped)
1 Tbsp. Low sodium soy sauce (or gluten-free tamari sauce)
3 Tbsp. chopped Green onions (thinly sliced)

Remove leaves from cauliflower and cut into large pieces.

In a food processor, pulse large pieces of cauliflower until it resembles grains of rice.

Add riced cauliflower, carrots, and green beans. Cook until tender and slightly browned (about 10 minutes).

Add garlic, ginger, and cilantro. Saute until aromatic (about 1-2 minutes).

Recipe Notes

A delicious alternative to a classic fried rice dish! Use your own blend of vegetables and herbs to truly customize this versatile dish! You can use a low-protein rice in place of cauliflower if desired.

"I use a lot of fresh citrus, garlic, and fresh herbs when cooking to cut down on fat and sodium but punch up flavor. Our cupboards and fridge are full of condiments - mustards, vinegars, etc. that also add tons of flavor but are low in fat, calories, or other processed additives."
