Asian Cauliflower Fried Rice Ingredients:
1 head cauliflower
2 tbsps of coconut aminos
2 tsps of turmeric
½ tsp of ginger
Asian Cauliflower Fried Rice Instructions:
- Chop the cauliflower into large chunks and put into a blender or food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, continue to chop the cauliflower into tiny pieces. Pulse the cauliflower until it is small and resembles rice.
- Freeze any leftovers if you are making in bulk.
- Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat until melted then add the cauliflower rice, salt, and pepper. Saute until tender- about 5 minutes.
- Place sautéed rice in a mixing bowl and put in optional ingredients if you like, melt the butter/ghee or coconut oil and mix in the ground turmeric and ginger.
Dr Jockers Comments:
My wife and I enjoy Asian food and make a cauliflower fried rice like this often. It tastes amazing and you can cover it with a great meat and vegetable stir-fry for a great tasting low-carb meal that helps improve your energy, brain function and fat burning.
The problem with Asian food in North America is the overuse of soy products which are often genetically modified along with MSG and other additives. In general, it is best to avoid soy sauce and coconut aminos are the best hypoallergenic alternative.
Asian restaurants serve everything with a TON of rice, which is high in carbohydrates that cause blood sugar imbalances and inflammation. The cauliflower rice tastes great and is full of anti-oxidants and liver cleansing compounds.
I love using the optional ingredients to get more turmeric, ginger and grass-fed butter into my system. Turmeric and ginger are super rich in anti-oxidant compounds that detoxify and reduce inflammation in our body.
The extra fat (butter, ghee or coconut oil) is necessary to get the turmeric and ginger to mix in real well. The fat also improves the taste and increases the satiety, so you feel full longer, while improving your gut and skin health through the nutrients the fat source provides.
Make this recipe and top it with a great chicken veggie stir-fry and you will have a great meal that will be a family favorite. Let us know all about it in the comments box below. Enjoy!
