Yum Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe: Fast, Low Carb & Fooled the Husband by Donna John
The other night I made this delicious melt-in-your-mouth roasted pork butt recipe – and had a lot leftover. When I see leftover pork, I automatically think of fried rice. My husband and I are watching our diets and trying to eat a little healthier and reduce carbs, so my rice fried rice turned into cauliflower fried rice. It was so good that he didn't even notice.
The fried rice is quick and easy to make, and has minimal prep. The only prep required is chopping the onion, garlic and green onions. Start the recipe by stir frying onion and garlic until fragrant. Add a bag of frozen riced cauliflower and shake in some soy sauce to give it a brown color, then add the cooked leftover pork and frozen mixed vegetables. Next season the "rice" with oyster sauce, hoisin sauce and more soy sauce. My neighbor back in the day, who was Vietnamese, always added a pinch of sugar to her fried rice, so I keep up that tradition (this is optional). Cook a few more minutes to blend all the flavors and garnish with chopped green onions.
