This recipe is actually replacing the refined white rice with cauliflower fried rice to gain rich nutritional value.  Why not fried white rice? The reality is that fried white rice is a carb-laden meal that accounts for about 75% of your daily caloric intake.

Traditional fried rice typically contains nutritionally-void white rice and fatty meat, all fried up in unhealthy oil.   I’ve taken this “Americanized” meal and put a healthy spin on it. Just by replacing the refined white rice with cauliflower, you’ll gain tons of nutritional value.

 

Even though white foods tend to be associated with low nutritional value, cauliflower packs in a high amount of nutrients into a small number of calories.

 

Cauliflower Fried RiceCauliflower is in the cruciferous vegetable family along with broccoli and cabbage, and this family is known for it’s cancer-protective antioxidants and phytonutrients.

 

Indole-3-carbinol and Sulphoraphane are two compounds in cauliflower that have shown promise in anti-cancer research.

 

Cauliflower also contains a high amount of vitamin C, which reduces oxidative stress from free radicals. The choline from cauliflower helps with learning and memory as well as sleep and muscle movement. As if that’s not enough, cauliflower also contains a high amount of fiber for a healthy digestive tract.

 

So who needs carbs, when you’ve got cauliflower? This dish tastes just like fried rice, but there’s not an ounce of rice in it!

 

You may serve it with grilled chicken or salmon if desired.
