something new: cauliflower fried rice...

I made a new recipe for dinner last night:   cauliflower fried rice.  Yes, cauliflower.  And you know what? It was delicious.  I think it was the coconut oil used to saute the onions and garlic.  I love anything coconut.  I even got Bob to try it!  He ate a whole plate.  He said "it wasn't as disgusting as [he] thought it would be." I'll take it.  It's cauliflower.  He's a burgers-and-dogs guy.  So, what can I expect really?

I've been wanting to try some new recipes, but I wanted to wait until my stomach was a little stronger.  As it was, my stomach was slightly unsure of this new food at first, but I was OK.   I ate my whole dish, which was about 2.5 ounces.  The only change I made to this recipe was that I used frozen salad shrimp instead of larger fresh shrimp.  That was simply because it was what I had on-hand.  I thought I had a bag of large raw shrimp in the freezer, but I must have used it up.  Or I was dreaming.  Oh, and I used the frozen peas and carrots mix rather than frozen peas and fresh carrots.  Again, that's what I had on-hand.  And I don't think it would have made a difference anyway.  It cuts out the work of peeling and chopping carrots.

Overall this was a pretty easy and fast recipe.  Once you start cooking it, be prepared to eat in about 15 minutes.  Here's the recipe if anyone wants to try it:  Cauliflower Fried Rice


  1. Now that sounds/looks really good!

    1. It was delicious! I loved that I could taste the coconut oil. I just wish I had the bigger shrimp. This kinda looks like a garbled up mess. Definitely doesn't look like the picture on the recipe's website. LOL
