5 Ingredient Cauliflower Fried Rice
This easy cooking week has been a great inspiration for me to try and make the most tasty dishes I can, with the least amount of ingredients and work. We kicked off with our Keto kale chips and followed it up with our Keto chicken nuggets. Both dishes are more ‘snack’ like rather than a full meal. So for today’s recipe I decided to make something more like a meal itself. I’ve always been a huge fan of fried rice and I’ve made quite a few cauliflower rice dishes on the show as well. I’m also a huge fan of pork in fried rice. So bringing these elements together to make a dish was something I wanted to do. However I had already made a cheesy Keto pork fried rice on the show. Of course it was Jamie Oliver to the rescue and taking some inspiration from him I decided to use Thai curry paste to make the fried rice and make a unique Thai style Keto fried rice. Enjoy!
Expand the Keto Fried Rice
Just this simple 5 ingredients can be twisted a bit to give you a dozen combinations. For starters you can swap the green curry paste for pretty much ANY curry paste from any cuisine. You can use Thai red or yellow curry paste, you could even use an Indian style Vinadloo curry paste. All depends what you get in the supermarket and what the sugar content is like. For the protein you can swap out the pork for chicken or beef or fish or prawns or paneer or tofu, you get the idea. The bottom line is, get creative. You can also amp up this version if you don’t mind throwing in a few more ingredients like mushrooms, spinach, some fresh basil or coriander. Play around with it and of course leave me a comment with your tweaks and how they turned out.
