I L.O.V.E fried rice. I mean small obsession kind of L.O.V.E. However, I usually try to only eat it 2-3 times a year as it is loaded with carbs, calories, and fat. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I was when the newest food trend surfaced: cauliflower rice. This fiber-rich, low-carb alternative to rice has changed my world. I am now able to enjoy “fried rice” on a monthly basis without all the carbs and guilt.
I came across a great Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe from SkinnyTaste that I just cannot get enough of. You can find the direct recipe here. The recipe is made entirely of vegetables so I add my own protein (chicken, beef, etc…). Also, when I’m super busy or feeling lazy, I buy the fresh OR frozen pre-made cauliflower rice from Trader Joe’s and it tastes just as amazing. Without the added protein, this awesome “fried rice” comes in a puny 108 calories for a heaping 1 and 1/3 cups. Woo hoo!
