Total Time 20 minutes
Cauli Fried Rice
- 2-3 tsp. olive oil or avocado oil
- ¾ tsp. turmeric
- ½ tsp. cumin
- 2 cloves garlic chopped small
- 1 scallion sliced thin
- 1 1-inch piece ginger peeled, chopped small (optional)
- 1 cup carrot peeled and diced small
- 1 cup broccoli florets chopped small

- 16 oz cauliflower rice fresh or frozen (about 5 cups or half of a large cauliflower)
- ½ tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. coconut aminos or low sodium soy sauce (optional)
- Salt to taste (if not using coconut aminos/soy sauce)
- First, heat a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the oil, then turmeric, cumin, scallion, ginger, and carrot. Let them cook for a minute or two, until fragrant.
- Next, stir in the broccoli and garlic. Cook a minute or two before adding the cauliflower rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes (if using frozen cauliflower, put a lid on while cooking). Season with black pepper and coconut aminos or salt to taste.
