Chicken-Fried-Cauliflower-RiceOne night I was craving Chicken Fried Rice, but the thought of going to a Chinese Restaurant and dealing with all of the nasties involved with that, caused me to create this chicken fried cauliflower recipe.  I just did not want to deal with the bad oils, the gluten in the soy sauce, all the carbs and starches from the rice, the factory farmed meat, the possible GMOs, I could go on and on.  I do live in San Francisco where people are very accomodating and understanding of all kinds of weird food requests, so I probably could have found a place that used gluten-free soy sauce and I might have been able to find a Chinese Restaurant that was organic if I really tried, but I really didn’t want to deal with all of that.

Even if I was able to find all of that, which is possible in San Francisco, it probably would still have been cooked in bad oils that most restaurants use and rice does have a lot of carbs and it is a grain which I avoid.   I have been making cauliflower rice quite frequently and it really works well. This chicken fried cauliflower rice is really great for nights when you are craving carbs but don’t want to eat them.  So here is the chicken fried cauliflower rice recipe I came up with.
