If you love fried rice you will love this recipe! It has become an absolute favorite among Ideal Protein Diet lovers.
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (cut into small pieces)
- 1 medium head of grated cauliflower
- 4 minced cloves of garlic
- 1 small piece of ginger (minced)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce
- 4 tsp soy sauce (or Bragg’s Amino Acids)
- 1/2 lemon or lime (juice from either)
- 1 cup sliced mushroom (any variety will do)
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 bunch chopped or sliced green onion
- Small bunch cilantro (chopped)
- Pinch of sea salt
- Black pepper to taste
In a large frying pan or wok, heat 1 tbsp olive oil on high heat until it just begins to smoke. Brown the chicken on both sides, remove from pan and set aside. On high heat, in the same wok or pan, add 1 tbsp olive oil or grape seed oil and brown the mushrooms and celery. Set aside. Still using the same pan, reduce heat to medium, add 1 tsp olive oil or grape seed oil, then add the ginger and garlic. Once lightly browned, add the cauliflower and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the chicken, mushroom, celery and their juices back to the pan. Add chili garlic sauce, soy sauce, salt and pepper.
Taste for seasoning. If no further seasoning is needed, add the eggs and cook for an additional 2 minutes on medium to medium-high heat. Remove pan from burner and add cilantro, green onion as well as the juice from your lemon or lime.
Here is a way of making “rice” from cauliflower. You have to try this method! It tastes extremely mild. It is also very versatile and could be used as a base for a recipe much like the above fried “rice” recipe.
1 medium head of grated cauliflower
Cook on low to medium heat until soft. DO NOT ADD WATER. Cauliflower absorbs water in great amounts, and the “granules” will end up sticky. Keep it fluffy by letting the moisture absorb into the cauliflower and let the cauliflower do its own thing. Once cooked, you’ll be able to top it with Bragg’s Amino Acids and serve it as a side dish. ENJOY!
