Cauliflower Rice:
  • 1 small head of cauliflower
  • boiled water
  • a bit of oil
  • black pepper and sea salt to taste
Stir Fry Ingredients: (amounts are for 2 servings)
  • 2 portobello mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, cut into ¼s
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • handful of fresh basil leaves
  • olive oil or vegetable oil of choice
  • soy sauce, to taste (if avoid wheat us a gluten-free brand)
Cauliflower Rice Instructions:
  1. Throughly clean the head of cauliflower and pat dry. Cut into florets and discard thick stalks. In a food processor pulse until you achieve small granules that resemble rice. OR using a box grater, grate the florets into rice like granules. Pour the riced cauliflower into a large bowl, then pour over enough boiled water to cover. Allow to sit for 4 minutes or until softened, then drain. Try to make sure nearly all of the liquid has drained off. Add a bit of oil to a pan and saute the drained cauliflower for a few minutes. Gently mix in some ground black pepper and sea salt, then set aside.
Stir Fry Instructions:
  1. Heat the oil, and once warm cook onions until soft and translucent. Add the peppers, mushrooms and garlic, cook until the vegetables begin to soften or to desired tenderness. Add a splash or as much soy sauce as desired, then add the basil leaves. Cook for another few minutes.
To Serve:
  1. Serve the stir fried vegetables over the rice and enjoy!
