Cauliflower Fried Rice








When I saw cauliflower on sale I grabbed quite a few. Gabe won't eat it, he can't even stand the smell. I'm such a good wife that I made him something special pasta cordon bleu. Since he was the only one eating the pasta, I had a few nights to eat meatless.

Carol posted this recipe and Jennifer Chong posted this one. I added the fish sauce and I also scrambled the egg where Carol made an egg pancake and cut it up. 

Ingredients:

1 head cauliflower
1 1/2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
3 large eggs, beaten *
1 medium green or red pepper, seeded and cut into small pieces ( used a orange pepper)
1 bunch green onions, sliced ( didn't use)
2 medium carrots, peeled and shredded ( used frozen peas and carrots- 1 cup frozen which I steamed till done)**
1 Tbsp. freshly grated ginger ( used about 1/2 teaspoon)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-3 Tbsp. lite soy sauce
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce ( added from Jennifer's recipe)
1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. Sriracha or chile paste


Directions:

Clean and cut cauliflower and add to food processor and pulse until the cauliflower looks like rice.

Add oil to a large skillet and saute garlic, onions, pepper. Fry until everything is soft. Add the carrots,peas, ginger and fry another 2 minutes.

Push the vegetables to the side of the large skillet and crack the eggs in the skillet and scramble.

Once the eggs are scrambled mix in the sauteed vegetables.

Add the cauliflower which was pulsed in the food processor to the  skillet and saute for about five minutes until the cauliflower is soft.

Mix the soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil and sriracha in a small bowl and whisk until well combined.

Pour the soy mixture over the cauliflower and combine

* Scrambled 3 eggs .  

** I had a bag of frozen peas and carrots. Easy.

Healthy Oatmeal Brownie Parfait



I recently made Brownie Batter Breakfast Bake. It's delicious.

Strawberries were on sale and Greek yogurt in the refrigerator.

Light bulb moment? You betcha.


Easy, easy, easy.

Make the Brownie Batter Breakfast Bake and leave it in the oven a little longer than the recipe calls for. You don't want the oatmeal to be soft in the center. Test it with a toothpick. The toothpick comes out clean- your oatmeal has the consistency of a brownie.

Once the "brownie" is baked remove from the ramekin and let cool.

Once cooled, break up the brownie into small pieces and drop into  a parfait glass. 

Layer sliced washed strawberries on top of the broken up brownie, using as many or as little as you want.

Next layer the Greek yogurt. I used vanilla yogurt. Spoon the yogurt  on top of the brownie, strawberry layer.

Repeat.

Serve immediately and enjoy!!!!!!
