Cauliflower Fried Rice
with ground pork / fried egg / spicy cashew sauce

Active: 30 min Total: 30 min
Cauliflower rice makes this twist on fried "rice" paleo-friendly but just as satisfying as the original.
Smarts: To keep prep time down, we're using frozen vegetables and baby spinach in the dish, but feel free to sub any vegetables you'd like. If using raw vegetables, just be sure to saute them until tender.

Make

  1. Heat a wok with first part of cooking oil over medium-high heat. Add pork, white parts of green onions, coriander, and a pinch of salt and saute until pork is nearly cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Add peas, carrots, and spinach to pork and continue to saute until spinach is wilted, ~2 minutes.
  3. Stir in cauliflower rice and stir-fry sauce and saute for 1 minute more. Set cauliflower rice aside, covered.
  4. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add second part of cooking oil and then crack eggs into heated oil. Cook eggs on one side until whites are set and yolks are still a bit runny, 4 to 6 minutes. (If you’d like the eggs more cooked, flip and cook on the other side.)
  5. Stir lime juice (portion for cauliflower rice) into cauliflower rice. Season with some salt and pepper.
  6. Divide cauliflower rice between serving plates / bowls. Top each serving with a fried egg and green parts of green onions. Serve with spicy cashew sauce. Enjoy!

Doubled the sauce as per my usual. A quick and easy weeknight meal.

Very good. A little too much meat so I would probably do half the ground pork and double the rice. With all the meat and the egg it felt a little protein heavy. But quick and easy and would make again.

Easy and fast. I don’t like sriracha, so I skipped the sriracha mayo and doubled the stir-fry sauce, instead. Still needed more sauce, though, because it was pretty dry

Pretty good. Didn't have peas or spinach, so used lots of shredded cabbage instead. This is a quick and tasty weeknight meal.
