Our family loves having fresh produce in our garden during the warmer months. Not only is it better for us, but it also shaves a good bit off our monthly grocery bill. Here is a picture of our fresh cauliflower from our garden a couple of years ago. We had so much left over, that I used my Cuisinart food processor to chop them up and place them in freezer bags to store in our deep freezer. This recipe takes no time at all to make and it is a healthier alternative to conventional fried rice.
Despite its lack of vibrant color, cauliflower provides an impressive amount of nutrients like vitamin C, K, and beta-carotene. It is considered to be a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous vegetable family and provides anti-inflammatory properties. It also helps support heart and brain health. It is rich in antioxidants and aids with digestion and detoxification. Want to learn more about how to tell if your detoxification system needs a little TLC? Check out my post here.

Simple No Soy Cauliflower Fried Rice
- 1 medium to large head of organic cauliflower (if not available, conventional version is fine)
- 1 TBS organic coconut oil
- 2-4 organic carrots peeled and chopped
- 1/2c organic green peas
- 1/2c organic sweet corn

- Himalayan sea salt and pepper to taste
- Using a chopping knife or a food processor, chop cauliflower.
- Place a large pan over medium heat. Add coconut oil.
- Take cauliflower and place in pan and sauté. Avoid overcooking to prevent a change in texture. Overcooking may cause the cauliflower to become overly mushy.

- Push sautéed ingredients to one side of the pan.
- Whisk eggs in separate bowl and add to pan. Scramble until fully cooked. Combine all ingredients.
- End with adding the coconut amino acids, mix well, and serve hot. Enjoy!
