Getting your daily dose of vegetables can be a challenge; as can be living a low-glycemic lifestyle in a fast-paced world of pizzas, sandwiches, and fries. Taking a popular, easy, favorite dish of many – fried rice – and making it completely carb-free and healthy is a challenge no more. A one-up on your quinoa or brown rice, here’s an easy way to turn cauliflower into “fried rice” that can be a quick, delicious, nutritious, and made just that much better with moringa.
- ¼ Head of Cauliflower (Any color will suffice)
- ¼ Medium onion
- ½ Cup of optional veggies, diced (bell peppers, mushrooms, etc.)
- 1-2 handfuls of greens (micro, arugula, spinach)
- 1-2 Eggs
- 1 Tbsp Kuli Kuli Moringa powder
- Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce) & sesame oil
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Optional garnishes (avocado slices, sesame seeds)
Cut florets of cauliflower away from stalk into 1-2 inch pieces.
Place florets and stalks into a food processor with onion. Pulse blend until cauliflower and onion are the consistency of small pieces of “rice,” about 4-5 times in a Ninja Blender.
Dice/slice other veggies into cubes.
Pre-scramble your egg(s) in a bowl. Add more eggs for a breakfast dish or extra protein and one egg just for “fried rice” flavor and consistency.
Heat wok (or frying pan) with oil, butter, or broth (for oil free option). Ghee was used in this particular recipe.
Sauté veggies until softened, adding vegetables in order of slowest to fastest cook times (for example, onion, carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms). Add pulsed cauliflower rice and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes or until cauliflower is softened to your liking. Season with salt and pepper.
Create a small space in the center of pan for egg. Pour egg into middle and let cook for 1 minute before scrambling. Finish thoroughly cooking egg and mix into the vegetable and cauliflower blend.
Turn off heat. Sprinkle moringa powder over your whole dish.
While wok is still warm, toss in greens and mix, lightly “bruising” your greens, but not cooking them. This helps them retain their nutrition and not create a watery dish.
Sprinkle with liquid aminos, a dash of sesame oil, and any optional garnishes you’d like to add.
Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner! This dish packs and re-heats well so you can use this as a pre-made breakfast for the whole week. Take advantage of the versatility of stir-frying and use any left over vegetables you love or may have left over in the fridge.
