Ingredients

  • 8 ounces raw cauliflower (225 g), chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen or canned peas (70 g)
  • 1/2 cup frozen or canned corn kernels (70 g)
  • 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Place the cauliflower in a food processor and blend until you get a consistency or texture similar to rice. If you don’t have a food processor, use a box grater instead (the side used to grate Parmesan cheese).
  2. Sautée the cauliflower rice in a frying pan with some oil or water for about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
  3. Add the onion and carrot to the frying pan and sautée them with some oil or water over medium-high heat until golden brown.
  4. Add the peas and corn kernels. If you use them frozen, cook them according to package directions and then add them to the pan. Stir and cook for a couple of minutes.
  5. Finally, add the cauliflower rice and the tamari or soy sauce, stir and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Serve immediately.
  6. Keep leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for about 3 to 4 days.

Notes

  • Add any veggies or ingredients you want.
  • If you don’t eat soy, add some coconut aminos or salt to taste instead of the tamari or soy sauce.
