So I’m gonna give y’all a little heads up. This recipe is HELLA bomb! I mean one of my bests if I do say so myself… if I do say so myself… hold up (sing it with me)! If you know what song those lyrics are from you are my ultimate bestie.
Ok back to the cauliflower rice. I didn’t plan on it being a Cajun-Asian infusion. But, hell it worked and it is delicious! For my Cajun lovers, I used andouille sausage to give it a spicy and spiced up flava. And for my Asian lovers, I added some ginger, crushed red pepper flakes and coconut aminos for some flare.
EIf you love fried rice and you’ve been looking for the perfect low calorie yet still comforting substitution, cauliflower rice is the way to go! I know for me, the first time I made cauliflower rice, I wasn’t a fan. Sauteéing it up with ghee, garlic, salt, and pepper doesn’t do the trick. Ya know how when you roast cauliflower you gotta season the ish up and throw a shitton of spices on there? Well, cauliflower rice is the exact SAME. Now, I know I sound redundant but I promise you a lot of people don’t love cauliflower in general simply because they don’t season it well. So don’t be afraid to spice that ish up!
