Mid week and one day closer to Friday. Yay! After what I thought was an overwhelming amount of produce on Sunday, I am now almost through everything I picked up at the Farmers Market. So, what to cook? Stir fry! What I love about a stir fry is that you can basically use whatever veggies or protein that you have on hand. For this Veggie Stir Fry over Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe, I used spinach, broccoli, and swiss chard, but you can use whatever veggies you have and your family likes. I also decided to go low carb by using cauliflower instead of rice.
The sauce recipe below is my “go to” stir fry sauce. It’s easy to make and so much healthier than the bottled sauces which can have a ton of ingredients and sodium. I’ve learned to read labels like a detective lol. It is incredible the amount of sodium, sugar, and artificial ingredients are in things you wouldn’t even think of! But, if I’m making my own version, I want it to be easy and FAST!
The stir fry was fast, healthy, delicious and kid approved. Mom for the win!
Cauliflower Fried Rice:
1 head cauliflower, or 1 bag of pre riced Cauliflower
1 tablespoon minced ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 carrots, diced
1 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup frozen peas
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup cashews, roughly chopped
2 to 3 tablespoons Braggs Aminos
-If you are using heads and not the pre riced kind, cut cauliflower into florets and discard stems. Pulse the cauliflower in a food processor until it breaks down into rice-sized pieces.
-Whisk the eggs and pour them into the skillet. Scramble the eggs. Transfer the eggs to a cutting board and cut into pieces.
-Heat 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and garlic, and sauté for 1 minute. Add carrots and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the corn, peas, and the cauliflower into the pan and stir to combine ingredients.
-Cover and cook on medium heat for approximately 9 minutes. Stir in the eggs, green onions, cashews, and 2 tablespoons of Braggs Aminos. Cook for another 1-2 minutes to combine all the flavors.

Vanessa, the cauliflower fried rice was a big hit at my house! My husband loves fried rice and he was very happy with the healthy substitute. My five year old was thrilled to be eating so many veggies that tasted so good. We will definitely be making this again and again.
