CAULIFLOWER RICE STIR-FRY

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 large onion (dice or slice)
  • 1.5 cups thinly sliced cabbage (red or white)
  • 1.5 cups carrots (grate or dice)
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms (any kind)
  • 1 handful fresh parsley
  • salt to taste (I use Himalayan)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup (or raw honey)

  • optional: sweet paprika or cayenne pepper 
  • optional: lime wedges for serving 
  • optional: crushed garlic (I like a lot, at least 4 cloves)

CAULIFLOWER RICE STIR-FRY

Directions

To make cauliflower rice:

  • Remove the green stems and wash & dry cauliflower.
  • Cut cauliflower into bite size pieces (see photo #2 above).
  • Turn cauliflower into rice by using traditional vegetable grater, or food processor, or your smoothie blender (do this in a few smaller batches if using food processor/blender to avoid overcrowding). 
  • To avoid making your stir-fry soggy, remove excess moisture from the whole batch of raw cauliflower rice by using cheese cloth, nut milk bag, or grab a smaller batch of rice with both hands and gently squeeze a few times above the sink (see photos 5+6 above).

To make the stir-fry:

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of raw coconut oil in a large skillet/pot/wok pan – over medium low heat.
  • Add onions and cook until soft and glowing. 
  • Add carrots, cabbage, mushrooms and sauté until just tender (4-7 min).
  • Add raw cauliflower, maple syrup, salt, and spices to taste and mix well (I like to start with 2 generous pinches of salt and go from there).
  • Sauté the whole batch of stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Stop cooking, set the skillet away from heat, add chopped fresh parsley + crushed garlic, and mix well with the whole vegetable mixture using two spatulas/wooden spoons/large mixing forks.

VARIATION TIPS

  • Add or swap any veggies for green beans, bell peppers, sugar snap peas, green onions, celery stalks, or fresh ginger. 
  • Add your favorite meat or shrimps if you prefer (cook separately).
  • Boost your stir fry with roasted cashews, toasted almonds or sesame seeds).

PREP & STORAGE TIPS

  • Cut all of the stir-fry veggies in the morning, store each veggie kind in individual airtight glass jars, place in the fridge, and cook in the evening.
  • Store leftovers in airtight glass jars in the fridge and consume the next day.
