Cauliflower Fried Rice

This recipe intrigued me.  I really liked it, though I could still tell it was cauliflower.  It was a nice alternative to rice.  I used frozen carrots and peas in this recipe.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

 
1 medium head of cauliflower, grated
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup carrots, thinly sliced
1/2 of a medium onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 egg whites, scrambled
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
Green onions for garnish, thinly sliced

1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add in onions and garlic and sauté until onion soften, about 3 minutes.

2. Add in peas and carrots, and cook until carrots become tender, about 4 minutes.

3. Stir in cauliflower and soy sauce, and cook while stirring frequently for about 8 minutes.

4. Add in the prepared egg whites, and cook until egg whites are heated through, about 2 minutes.

5. Garnish with green onions before serving.
