Shrimp Cauliflower Fried Rice

This is a GREAT healthy dupe for fried rice. The taste, texture and everything is almost exactly spot on to what you’d get with the regular rice version. BUT the carbs and calories are WAY lower in this recipe! Enjoy as a super filling lunch or dinner!

INGREDIENTS:

3 bags frozen cauliflower rice (I use Birds Eye brand)
2 cups shredded carrots (I buy these pre shredded)
3 cloves garlic, chopped
6 green onion, chopped (will use whites and greens separately, so divide)
3 eggs
6 tsp toasted sesame oil
6 tsp reduced sodium soy sauce
16 shrimp, deveined and detailed
Non-stick cooking spray

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat stovetop to medium heat and spray pan with non-stick spray
  2. Add shrimp and cook until pink throughout; remove and set aside
  3. Spray pan again with non-stick spray and add garlic and onion whites; cook for 2-3 minutes
  4. Add cauliflower and carrots; cook, stirring frequently for 6-8 minutes
  5. Shift rice in pan and make a well in the center. Add eggs and cook, stirring frequently to mix in scrambled egg to the rice mixture
  6. Add oil and soy sauce; cook, stirring frequently for 5-7 minutes; add more soy sauce as needed, to taste; mix in cooked shrimp
  7. Remove from heat, plate and garnish with greens from the onion

I like to add some heat to my fried rice. Sambal Oelek (an Indonesian chili paste)  can be found in most grocery stores. Check the ethnic/international aisle near the curry pastes and soy sauce or fish sauce.

Enjoy!
