From Ashley’s Macroed Kitchen: Cauli Fried Rice

Making Asian-inspired food macro-friendly is almost too easy. You’re working with meat and veggies and some sauces. I have to get a little creative to maneuver around the sweet sauces sometimes, but on the whole, it’s a cake walk to macro-hack.

Use this Cauli Fried Rice as a side to any of your Asian-inspired favorites (or top with a couple of fried eggs and call it breakfast).

Cauli Fried Rice

Ingredients
1 bag frozen riced cauliflower (or rice 4 cups of your own)
1 bag frozen cauliflower medley (includes onions, peas and carrots) (or rice 4 cups of your and add mixed veggies)
2 eggs (truth in advertising, I usually do 3 but macros are figured for 2)
1-2 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. ginger (I use the squeezy stuff from the produce section)
To taste, red pepper flakes or sriracha (optional, to desired heat preference)
1 tbsp. butter

Instructions
Melt butter in pan.
Add all ingredients to skillet on high heat. No need to thaw or heat the riced cauliflower.
Cook until veggies are warm and eggs are cooked through.
