It was that time again to do a massive fridge clean out and make sure that I had used up all of the fresh ingredients I had left in my fridge! This is a fantastic way to make sure that you are not wasting any food and therefore money, each week. I cannot recommend it enough!
With my fridge clean out, came this creation… Cauliflower Fried ‘Rice’
Now, you can either use a little manual hand blitzer (I got mine from Kmart here) or a food processor, however I find the food processor makes the cauliflower too fine.
For anyone who hasn’t bought edamame salad before, this is what I buy from the freezer section at Woolworths!
This recipe is high in plant protein and full of flavour! I hope you enjoy it 🙂
Cauliflower Fried ‘Rice’
Time: 30 mins
What you need:
Blitzer/chopper, wok or big fry pan, measuring utensils, chopping board, knives.
1 tbsp (20ml) minced ginger
1 tbsp (20ml) minced garlic
2 tbsp (40ml) tamari or to desired taste
1 or 2 tsp sesame oil
pinch of chilli flakes
1 bunch of broccolini cut into cm pieces
2 cups of baby spinach
1 packet of edamame salad frozen
2 tins of organic brown lentils, rinsed and drained
1 cauliflower, blitzed into ‘rice’
2 tsp of olive oil
1 tsp pink salt
1 tbsp black sesame seeds
black pepper to taste
*coriander optional to serve
- Begin by placing florets of the cauliflower into the blitzer. Pulse until it meets a ‘rice’ consistency, but it’s not too fine. Do it in small batches, I did about 4.
- Drain and rinse the lentils.
- Heat the olive oil in the wok over a medium heat. Add in the garlic and the ginger and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add the cauliflower rice and stir to coat in the garlic and ginger, cooking for 2 minutes.
- Add in the spinach, broccolini and the edamame salad, stir well at frequent intervals. Cook for 8 minutes until the vegetables have softened but broccolini is still firm to the bite.
- Add in the tamari, chili flakes, lentils, salt and sesame oil. Stir and cook for a few minutes until well flavoured.
- Add the sesame seeds and serve.
You may choose to add more tamari or chili flakes, depending on your taste buds.
Happy cooking lovely’s
