This delicious low carb dish will satisfy your asian food fix while keeping your belly and booty happy. Cauliflower replaces the rice so goodbye carbs and hello benefits! Cauliflower has great antioxidant powers with Vitamin C and manganese. Not only is cauliflower high in antioxidants, it contains fiber, folic acid, vitamin B and potassium. This is a delicious way to get more veggies into children as well. They won't even know it's cauliflower and will be begging for a second serving! Try adding this great side dish to any meal and enjoy the sneaky benefits of Cauliflower fried rice!

12 Ounces Cauliflower Florets
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
2 Green Onions, Chopped
1/2 Cup Peas, Frozen or Fresh
1 Whole Carrot, Chopped
1 TBSP Tamari (Gluten Free Soy Sauce)
1 TBSP Olive Oil
1/2 TSP Sesame Oil

In a food processor, "rice" cauliflower florets. Pulse gently so that the cauliflower turns into little rice looking pieces. Do not puree cauliflower. 

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. 
Cook garlic, green onions, peas and carrots for about 5 minutes, making sure the garlic doesn't burn. 
When mixture is soft and aromatic, add cauliflower "rice"
Add Sesame Oil and Tamari.
Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Serve hot and enjoy! xx
