How Do You Make A Tasty Cauliflower Fried Rice
It is all about layering those ingredients into your dish. Some may think plain cauliflower rice is bland, but to me, that is how it is with any type of rice. But when you add in chicken, veggies, and sauce, it creates layers of flavors that really make a tasty cauliflower fried rice. I love this recipe, it is my go-to!
Can You Make Cauliflower Rice Without A Food Processor
Yes! Use your blender on the pulse setting or even use an old-school cheese grater. It will take more time but you will still get that rice texture by grating it by hand. With your blender just pulse until it resembles a rice texture as you would do in a food processor.
Can You Freeze Cauliflower Rice
Yes. Say you make your own or buy a bag and don’t think you will use it all for this recipe. Just make sure to dry your rice as good as you can and then seal properly and freeze. It can last 3-6 months when put in the freezer properly.
This is such an easy recipe for a quick weeknight meal. We love the idea of a fried rice, and I love incorporating a healthier version to help keep us on track. You won’t even miss the empty carbs. Add some low sodium soy sauce over the top and you have a wonderful dish to serve up for family and friends.
