Being from Louisiana originally, and growing up in a Cajun household, well I grew up having rice and gravy every night with dinner.
Forget meat and potatoes, we had meat and rice.
And I looooooooove me some white rice and gravy...
However its not good for you at all, and for the past several years I can count on both hands how many times I have had white rice.
Doesn't mean I don't always want it when I see it though.
Especially whenever I see fried rice anything.
So I found my alternative and I was a bit skeptical. Just as an FYI, I switched out the olive oil with coconut oil (Tropical Traditions!) and then instead of soy sauce, I used coconut aminos (both paleo alternatives to those 2 ingredients).
|First I found a site where I could read exactly how to first 'make' the rice from raw cauliflower|
|Nice head of cauliflower|
|Leaves and core removed|
|Put in food processor and chop to the point where it looks like 'rice'|
|Finished product after using the processor|
|Minced garlic, coconut oil, chopped green onions. Then I used some beef that I had cooked up and stored for throw together meals, but you could use any meat you liked or just plain obviously|
|Add 'rice' to the mixture and fry for about 4 minutes or so, tossing constantly|
|Fry baby fry!|
|Lightly beaten egg with yolk|
|Scoot the 'rice' over to the side and add the egg; then toss all together after the egg has set for a minute|
|Ta da! The finished product and OH SO GOOD! There was actually a lot more than this, but I put half of what I made into the refrigerator for another meal|
