Cauliflower "Fried" Rice

I'm posting pictures first as a peace offering for the complete lack of blog posts lately.  Summer has been crazy - in a good way!  But still crazy.  I'm also working full-time this summer for the first time in many, many years - which is also a good thing!  However, that means I've been wayyyyyy behind on the blog posting.

However, I'm hoping the deliciousness I'm about to share will make up for that!

I've jumped on the "cauliflower" rice train with a vengeance (especially now that they sell it already riced - for us lazy people out there!).  After many attempts, I finally perfected my "fake out" cauliflower "fried" rice.  It's got a nuttiness from sesame oil, and I used Bragg's Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce (which you could certainly use!). 

This is a great dish because really, after the "rice", you can throw in any veggie you have on hand. It's a terrific "use up"!  I also love to top mine with Trader Joe's Chicken Cilantro Wontons because they are AMAZING.

Cauliflower "Fried" Rice
Serves 1 - 3 Smartpoints

1 cup riced cauliflower
1 egg
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tbsp. Bragg's Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
1/2 cup chopped snow peas
1 cup mixed vegetables (I've also used Cruciferous Crunch or broccoli slaw here - terrific!)

Spray large nonstick pan with cooking spray.  Over medium high heat, saute riced cauliflower for about 3 minutes.  Add in snow peas and mixed vegetables - cook for 4 minutes or until vegetables are cooked through.  Add sesame oil and liquid aminos and lower to a simmer for about 2 minutes. 

Beat the egg in a separate bowl.  Push vegetable mixture to one side of the pan, add the egg and scramble.  After egg is scrambled, mix in with the veggies and cook for another minute.

Plate up and top with whatever you would like!
