... all the flavor without the carbs!
In my article yesterday about how to make cauliflower rice I promised to publish my recipe for my cauli-rice fried “rice.” It is simple and easy to make and all but tastes like the “real” thing!
I learned to make fried rice from Lee, a Filipino neighbor we lived near many years ago. I still cannot make egg rolls that rival hers but I did get the fried rice right! It’s a great side dish OR you can add cooked chicken or pork into the mix and make it a meal! My family will eat it any way I serve it! Now that I can make it low carb my husband and I are enjoying it again and so can you!

This reheats well and is great for lunch the next day!
Super simple and easy to make! You can add a few peas if you’d like although I steer away from that high-carb vegetable. They look nice and add color if you’re making a large amount for guests. When I do that I have a pile of them on my plate at the end of the meal!
Do you love cauli-rice? What’s your favorite way to use it? Leave it in your comment below and it just might make it into my upcoming recipe roundup!
In the meantime that’s the skinny on staying skinny while eating what is traditionally a high-carb dish!
