Cauliflower "Fried Rice"

I LOVE fried rice, and often make my own fried rice at home with brown rice which is delicious. But sometimes when I want to cut down on my carbs, I opt for cauliflower rice.

I posted this Cilantro Lime Cauliflower “Rice”[1] a while back, and it was a huge hit. So I decided to play around with that recipe and make this Asian version to go with the Orange Chicken[2] I posted yesterday, and my husband (who detests cauliflower) was pretty amazed how the meal turned out. The portions are generous and you get a serving or two of vegetables into your diet.

  • 1 medium head (about 24 oz) cauliflower, rinsed
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • pinch of salt
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 small onion, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 scallions, diced, whites and greens separated
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce, or more to taste (Tamari for Gluten Free)

Directions:

Remove the core and let the cauliflower dry completely. Coarsely chop into florets, then place half of the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice or couscous – don’t over process or it will get mushy. Set aside and repeat with the remaining cauliflower.

Combine egg and egg whites in a small bowl and beat with a fork. Season with salt.

Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium heat and spray with oil. Add the eggs and cook, turning a few times until set; set aside.

Add the sesame oil and saute onions, scallion whites, peas and carrots and garlic about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft.

Raise the heat to medium-high. Add the cauliflower “rice” to the saute pan along with soy sauce. Mix, cover and cook approximately 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside. Add the egg then remove from heat and mix in scallion greens.

Roasted Vegetable Israeli Couscous

Roasted Vegetable Israeli Couscous

by Pam on April 22, 2013

There is nothing better than roasted vegetables. They are terrific in soups, lasagna, rice, pasta, or on their own. I recently picked up a box of Israeli couscous, so when I stumbled upon this recipe from Kitchen Grrrrls[1], I couldn’t resist making it. I adapted the recipe to suit our tastes and what I had on hand. I have to say, I LOVED THIS DISH! The Israeli couscous was light, flavorful, and had a great texture. The roasted veggies gave great flavor and texture to the couscous and topping it with salty feta was perfect. I paired this couscous with salmon and it was a healthy and delicious meal. I have a feeling I will be eating the leftover couscous for breakfast tomorrow.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then coat it with cooking spray.

Dice the zucchini, onion, mushrooms, and bell pepper into small same size pieces. Place the veggies on the baking sheet then add the cloves of garlic (skins on). Drizzle with 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Place into the oven and roast for 30 minutes, stirring the mixture, after 15 minutes. Add the tomatoes and continue to roast for 20 more minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Once the garlic has cooled, carefully remove the skin without squeezing the cloves. Slice the garlic cloves into pieces; sprinkle on top of the roasted veggies.

Coat the skillet with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. Once hot, add the Israeli couscous and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Add the broth then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Cook for 12-15 minutes, until the broth has evaporated and the couscous has cooked through. Add the roasted veggies and gently mix until well combined. Pour into a serving dish then sprinkle the top with feta cheese. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
