Total Time

Prep 20 mins

This recipe is from a vancouver food website that features recipes from local restaurants. It is great a way to cut back on carbs/calories while still enjoying saucy recipes.

Directions

  1. Grate the cauliflower (including the core) using the medium sized holes of a grater or grater attachment of the food processor.
  2. With your hands squeeze out as much water as you can.
  3. Over medium heat, melt the butter in a large, heavy frying pan and add the garlic. Saute until the garlic sizzles.
  4. Add the grated cauliflower, sprinkle with salt and stir and fry until its tender-crisp, about 5-8 minutes, the length of time will depend on the cauliflower.
  5. Stir in the green onion and pepper.
  6. Check the seasoning and serve.

This was excellent tasting, but I had to add more butter and a little olive oil because the cauliflower seemed to absorb the butter immediately. I will probably make this again, but will microwave the cauliflower a little to start the cooking. I also used garlic salt instead of the salt to enhance the garlic flavor. All in all a great idea for weight watching. Thanks so much.

I haven't gotten this down to an art yet, but I like the idea. I used soy sauce and egg for an egg-fried rice, but I think I grated the cauliflower too fine. Grating the cauliflower is a lot of work but it wasn't as messy as I expected.

Great! Loved this. Grating the cauliflower was a little annoying, as the cauliflower flies about a bit when you grate it. I skipped the butter and just used some cooking spray. I also added some soy sauce. Thanks for posting this great recipe and I'm excited to try other "fried rice" recipes with the cauliflower.
