Cauliflower Fried ‘Rice’

This might deviate from the VeganMoFo theme of favorite cooking class recipes: I’m not sure if this would qualify as a true favorite of the cooking class students, but it was definitely the recipe that most intrigued them all! Chopped cauliflower is used as a base for this grain-free ‘rice’ dish. This can be eaten raw or cooked, and served solo or with green or nori wraps or pilafs.

looks like fried rice, heh? It’s cauliflower fried rice!

1½ cups thinly sliced napa cabbage
1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper

1 Tablespoon coconut aminos

  1. Pulse cauliflower, salt, and pepper in the processor until the shape of rice. Remove and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil until warm. Add onions and cook until browned. Add cabbage, peppers, carrots, and green onion and sauté for 5-10 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  3. Add cauliflower mixture with coconut aminos. Stir until combined and warmed through.
