Cauliflower Fried Rice

Take out? No thanks! This guilt-free version of fried rice is so delicious that in my house the bowl actually got licked. I am also a big fan of this dish because it is high in protein and always makes enough leftovers to last us a few meals.

  • I made this today. It was awesome! I omitted the rice vinegar, zucchini, and red pepper flakes because I didn’t have them on hand. Even without, it was awesome. I think next time I may use a little less garlic salt, but other than that, this recipe was a smashing success! Thanks for sharing!!
