Paleo Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice

I’thousand LOVING this recipe of late. It’second so light in addition to delicious, together with much healthier than takeout fried rice. Plus, I used cauliflower rice instead of regular rice, then it’s paleo as well as low carb! I’1000 not paleo, but I do tend to swallow that fashion a lot of the fourth dimension. I feel and then much ameliorate when I’one thousand non eating a lot of grains. Protein too veggies is the manner to become! If y'all’re not paleo, you lot tin can for certain purpose regular rice inwards this recipe. It’second corking for meal prep together with for function lunches likewise.

Sesame, garlic, and ginger flavors will e'er take my middle. That combo is and then difficult to crush. This recipe is and so freaking flavorful together with salubrious. My favorite sort of recipe!
I honey buying the already riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’sec. They’re forthwith carrying it in the refrigerated section, but they accept it frozen too! I do brand my ain cauliflower rice if I’one thousand not curt on time, but TJ’second makes it and so slow.

I besides love using it for burrito bowls to sneak inwards more than veggies and brand them lower carb. Or inward my breakfast scrambles. Almost every twenty-four hour period, I accept around course of sautéed greens, roasted diced sweetness potatoes, veggies, as well as egg whites for breakfast. And avocado. Duh. Call me deadening, just I beloved it! It’s the best postal service workout meal as well as I ever feel my best if I kickoff the mean solar day with those two things. Workout + egg white scramble = happy Molly.

I used kokosnoot aminos instead of soy sauce here, but experience costless to function soy. I like the kokosnoot aminos because they’re a lot cleaner in addition to lower inwards sodium than soy sauce.

This recipe would be delicious amongst shrimp or beef, or fifty-fifty tofu if y'all’re vegetarian. Just don’t skimp on the garlic, ginger, and sesame. Favorite flavor profile!
