Makes 2 Servings

1/2 head of cauliflower (about 350g), finely grated
2 green onions, diced
1/2 yellow, red or green pepper
2 cups broccoli
2 celery stalks
1 cup snap peas
1/2 cup edamame beans, shelled
1 whole egg
1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp low-sodium, gluten-free soy sauce
1/2 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
1 tsp organic honey
1 Tbsp sesame seeds, for garnish

To make the cauliflower “fried rice”, grate your cauliflower using a cheese grater or food processor.  Add this to a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 7 minutes, until tender.  Set aside.  Chop the green onions and add the white parts to a frying pan or wok over medium heat, saute for about a minute.  Add the cauliflower and rice wine, stir.  Push the cauliflower to one side of the frying pan, add the egg and scramble.  Stir the egg into the cauliflower and saute for a few minutes.  Add the green parts of the green onions, stir and transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm.photo 2In the same frying pan, add your veggies and edamame beans.  Saute for a few minutes until veggies are tender.  Add the soy sauce, fresh grated ginger, honey, and salt/pepper.  Stir well and saute for a few more minutes.photo 3Divide the rice into two bowls and add the edamame/veggie mix on top.
