Hey, friends! How was your Wednesday? I got summoned for jury duty, and it was a loonnnggggg day. I did not get selected but was not dismissed until the very end, and then had a bit of a drive home. It was interesting to see the legal system in action though, and I did get some good reading time in while waiting around.
Today I wanted to share another super fast meal idea, my weeknight cauliflower fried rice. This is a 10-minute dish that is a perfect way to get extra veggies in. It is one of the kids’ favorites. I love things that make them want to eat veggies, so we have it pretty regularly. It is great on its own, but you could also add some cooked chicken, tofu, shrimp or any other preferred protein. It also makes a good side. I made this not too long ago and served it with my Weeknight Egg Roll in a Bowl, and the whole family was full and happy.
Weeknight Cauliflower Fried Rice
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 bag (12 oz) frozen riced cauliflower
- 1/3 cup frozen mixed vegetables (I was out of mixed veggies and just used frozen peas on the pictured batch)
- 1 egg
- 3-4 green onions, diced
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2-3 tablespoons Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce, or coconut aminos, depending on your preferences)
Directions: Add sesame oil to a frying pan and heat on medium-high heat. Add riced cauliflower and vegetables to pan. Begin to stir and heat, adding garlic powder, onion powder, and ground ginger. Continue to cook until heated through and beginning to brown slightly (about 8 or so minutes). As it cooks, crack the egg into a bowl and beat. Make a well in the middle of your pan, and pour the egg into this well. Allow the egg to cook in the well for about a minute, then scramble and mix in with rest of ingredients. Pour in the liquid aminos and add the green onions. Mix thoroughly and serve.
Let me know if you give this recipe a try.
How is your week going so far? Have you ever had jury duty?
