Eating For Your Future/Cauliflower Rice Vegetable Stir Fry

I recently came across this video for a Cauliflower "Rice" Vegetable Stir Fry. As I watched, I was a little skeptical, as I thought that the cauliflower might break down and become mushy. Well, miracle of miracles, it doesn't. I now have a wonderful alternative to rice and grains as a side dish. The riced Cauliflower is delicious! When I made up the dish, I didn't tell my husband that it was cauliflower as I wanted to see how he would react. His first comment was, "oh wow, couscous!!!" I replied no and told him to take another taste. The second time around he thought it might be quinoa. I then told him that it was cauliflower and he was happily amazed.
If you can't eat grains, or you are trying to incorporate more vegetables into your diet, this is a great recipe.  The recipe makes up 2 servings, so it's just enough for a dinner and a lunch for 1, or a dinner for 2. There are less than 300 calories, so your waistline will love the dish too!!! If you would like to add a little more protein, you could always add tofu, or leftover chicken if you have some on hand.
You can find a printable version of the recipe HERE.
Enjoy!!!

  3. Have a head of cauliflower in the fridge now. Think I'll give this a whirl tomorrow after I pick up some broc and red pepper. Looks so pretty! and sounds tasty.

    1. Let me know what you think! You may want to put smaller batches of the cauliflower in the food processor as a full head in at once was a little too much.
