OK so I was in the kitchen and I was trying to come up with another exciting meal for my family. You know, one of those let’s find something in the kitchen kind of nights. I was looking through the freezer and saw this bag of frozen Cauliflower Rice my husband picked up about a month ago. I’ve thrown all kinds of things on top of this white bag, but there it was staring at me.
I quickly googled cauliflower rice and the first thing to pop up a stir fry recipe. So I went searching for all the ingredients. I did not have half of them! Ok no problem, I’m a chef, right? Yes, a Pastry Chef lol. Let’s see how this turns out! The recipe called for EVOO, all I had was some Olive Oil Spray to sautee my chopped onions and garlic and that would have to do.
Surprisingly this happened to work out well for me! I was a sauteeing Queen, I tell ya! My fancy recipe called for cauliflower rice, like you take stalks of fresh cauliflower and chop them up. It even had a nice little video showing you how to chop it up all nice and pretty to resemble rice. But come on who am I kidding, this is not a day I just had Cauliflower laying around. I grabbed my frozen stuff, defrosted it a little and dumped it in.
I drained a can of peas and corn, added some salt, pepper, a tiny bit of soy sauce and some crock pot bbq chicken and TA-DA! Cauliflower Stir-Fry that my family devoured lol.
Can I level with you? I’m a little shocked they ate it. But seriously it was delicious. All it takes is a little effort and a whole lot of creativity to keep those bellies full. Okay next time, I’ll do it the fancy way.
