Today I am sharing one of my favorite side dishes, Keto Cauliflower Fried Rice. Actually this can very easily be turned into a main entree by adding a little cooked shrimp, boneless chicken strips or even some left over beef such as a little pot roast. For Now we will be serving it this way because one of our son’s and his lady are visiting us here in Mexico and she does not eat any animal foods including eggs and butter. They will be here for 10 days so the food choices will be interesting but very enjoyable. Breakfast might be a challenge because I do like our eggs. Let’s face it, with abot 100 chickens they are always available. Now we have also added ducks and turkeys to the farm but it is to early to tell if there will be a market for their eggs. Anyway, back to the cauliflower:

Chefs Tip: If you use frozen cauliflower that is already riced you can shave a couple of minutes off of the cooking time without effecting the flavor. Just check the ingredients on that package to be sure it is cauliflower and nothing else.
Nutritional information is based on using tamari, rather than coconut aminos and on the proper serving size. It can vary slightly and thus it is provided for entertainment purposes only. It is not to be construed as medical advice as we never offer medical advice on this blog.
