Coconut Pineapple Cauliflower Fried "Rice"

 I’ve been meaning to post this recipe for a while, it is just SO good. I use chopped cauliflower in place of rice, so this dish is a cruciferous powerhouse!

You’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 head raw cauliflower, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp fish sauce (optional)
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2/3 cup pineapple, coarsely chopped (fresh if possible, otherwise canned works too)
  1. Heat coconut oil in a large pan on medium heat. Add onions and garlic, cook for 5 minutes or until onions begin to soften and turn translucent.
  2. Add cauliflower, soy sauce, sesame oil, fish sauce, and coconut. Mix and let cook for about 8 minutes, or until cauliflower has softened but still has a slight crunch (“al dente”).
  3. Mix in pineapple and serve.

This dish is great with stir fried chicken, shrimp, beef, or pork. Enjoy!
