You guys – it’s been awhile.  But I’m still here – cooking new recipes up & not finding the energy to post them for you.  I’m going to try to do better – we’ve hit the 6 month mark with my newest babe and she’s finally (finally) sleeping longer stretches.

Anyway, this recipe is a winner!  It’s super yummy & I promise it won’y even seem like you’re eating cauliflower.  Plus, bonus, it’s Paleo as well as Primal (no dairy!).

Chicken Fried Rice

Marinade:
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 Tbsp ginger (I used the tube variety)
1/8 tsp fish sauce
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp salt
4 tsp red chili paste

Main ingredients:
1 C minced carrots
1 1/2 C minced mushrooms
1/2 a head of cauliflower, riced (approximately 5 cups)
1 C minced onion
2 eggs, beaten
5 chicken thighs, bones and skin removed and cut into tiny pieces
4 Tbsp sesame seed oil
1/4 C soy sauce

Blend the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Mix marinade in a larger container with the chicken and set into the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours (I did overnight and it tasted great!).  While the chicken marinates, mince your carrot, and mushroom – which I did in a food processor.

Heat sesame seed oil in a large wok & scramble the eggs until firm; remove and set aside.  Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the wok and then add the onion, carrot and mushroom. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes.  Create pocket in the center of the wok; add a quarter-sized drop of oil and then add the chicken.  Sauté for 5 to 6 minutes. Add in the cauliflower rice and cook until the rice is tender.  Drain any excess liquid off (I find there is some after the chicken & rice).  Then, drizzle in the 1/4 cup soy sauce and continue sautéing for another minute.  Add the eggs back in and serve!  Enjoy!
