This is no ordinary Special Fried Rice! This is a grain-free, SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth) friendly version made with cauliflower. And hubby assures me it doesn't taste like cauliflower. He used to have issues with eating "white trees" as he called it growing up, so he'd know!
I made this for my mid-week lunches and got around 7 portions out of it which I froze. It defrosts really well and still tastes delicious re-heated. You could also enjoy it as a main meal or have it as a side with dinner.
It may seem like a lot of ingredients but it's totally worth it - every one of them adds sensational flavour and nutritional value.
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1 capsicum, de-seeded and diced
3 rashers of bacon, diced
1 tbsp garlic infused olive oil (or 1 tbsp plain olive oil plus 1 crushed garlic clove if you can tolerate it)
1 cauliflower, grated or pulsed in the food processor until it resembles rice grains
2cm cube of fresh ginger, grated
1 cup frozen peas
3 tbsp coconut aminos (or tamari if you can tolerate soy)
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp fine Himalayan salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
4 eggs, lightly whisked
5 spring onions, chopped (the green part only if you're treating SIBO)
Here's what you do...
1. Fry carrots, capsicum and bacon in olive oil until the vegetables start to soften.
2. Add the cauliflower and ginger, frying until all vegetables are almost cooked.
3. Add all remaining ingredients except the eggs and onions. Stir well.
4. Pour the egg into the pan, mixing through until it's all cooked.
5. Stir through the spring onion and serve.
