The lazy chef’s cauliflower fried rice


20130917-142240.jpgAs you’ve seen by previous posts, I’m a fan of food porn as much as the next person. This hectic NY hustle can sometimes make cooking a bigger chore than usual but making my own meals makes me feel capable in much the same way physical activity does. Me Tarzjania, me can do for meself. I believe in mastering your own survival by using and enjoying what the earth gives you. Check out this SCRUMPTIOUS no-rice fried rice dish I just made. I refuse to call it paleo because I’m not sure if I want to label myself as a disciple of that team but I will say it was inspired by someone else’s recipe which follows that doctrine. Mine has far less ingredients,
1 small head of cauliflower florets, processed to rice size without stalks
2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced.
2 organic eggs
1 onion slice, chopped
1/2 cup peas
1/2 carrot, mandolin sliced
4 tsp coconut oil
1.5 tbsp fish sauce
Sea salt
Black pepper
Ground ginger
Garlic powder
Heat 1 tsp coco oil in small skillet. Whisk eggs in small bowl and scramble. Remove and Set aside.
Season chicken with salt, ginger, garlic and black pepper.
Heat another tsp coco oil and brown chicken slices 3-5 mins. Remove and set aside.
Heat another tsp of coco oil and sauté veggies and peas with fish sauce and lemon juice.
Add processed cauliflower to mixture and the mix further. Cover and cook for 3 mins.
Heat last tsp coco oil in larger skillet and transfer cauliflower mixture to larger skillet. Add chicken and egg and mix on high heat (3-5 mins). Serve hot and enjoy!
