Wednesday, January 30, 2019 (HealthDay News)-If you want to lighten your carbs without compromising the taste of your favorite dish, use cauliflower “rice” as a reliable alternative.

Cauliflower is the healthiest of all vegetables and is rich in vitamin C, fiber and folic acid. “Rising” means pulsing with a food processor until the chunks are the size of a grain of rice. Then use them for dishes that require rice, pasta, and even potatoes.

This recipe is a great alternative to traditional fried rice and can be customized by adding your favorite low calorie vegetables. Throw the last cooked shrimp or chicken cubes for a complete meal.

Cauliflower fried rice

  • 1 small-headed cauliflower cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoons of sesame oil, split
  • 4 carrots, chopped
  • 1 red or yellow onion, peel and chop
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, chopped
  • 2 pieces of garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup of corn grain
  • 1/4 cup chopped coriander
  • 2 tablespoons of low-salt soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce

Place the florets in a food processor and coarsely chop them in about 15 pulses (do this in several batches to get the most consistent “grain”).

Heat a large frying pan over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil. Add cauliflower and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring well until the cauliflower begins to turn brown. Transfer to a large plate.

Heat the remaining oil in the same frying pan and add the carrots, onions, ginger and garlic. Cook for 3-4 minutes with good stirring until the vegetables start to turn brown.

Put the cauliflower back in the pot. Gently stir it with other vegetables and cook for another minute to heat everything. Turn off the heat, add corn, coriander, soy sauce and hot sauce and stir. Consume immediately, or refrigerate completely and refrigerate in a closed container if pre-made.

Yield: 4 servings
