Beef Fried (cauliflower) Rice

I have a special recipe, treat, for you today!!!! 

Beef fried rice with out the rice!!!! 

I am really starting to love the versatility of cauliflower. Before eating more Primal/Paleo I did not know there were so many wonderful uses for cauliflower. I used to eat it raw or steamed. Now I enjoy rice and mashed. This is becoming a household staple! I do buy 2 heads a week... :) 

Actually - all vegetables - a wide variety are staples in our household.

Creating delicious new recipes and meals for my family is rewarding enough. We are really enjoying the new flavors and simplicity of meals! Yes, some of them take a little longer!

I have made several different version of the family favorite but this one could be the best and favorite of the family!

We could not tell the difference!!!!
Beef Fried (Cauliflower) Rice

The Ingredients:
1/2 - 1 lb ground beef
1 cup onion, diced
1 cup carrots, diced
1 cup steamed broccoli, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 eggs, scrambled (we used 2 large chicken eggs and one turkey egg) 
1 head of cauliflower
coconut aminos
garlic powder
pepper
Worcestershire sauce (just splash)

The Directions:
Pulse raw cauliflower in food processor until rice like. Set aside. 

Saute all vegetables in coconut oil. Cook for 5 minutes. Add ground beef. Cook until all the beef is has no pink. Add cauliflower rice and cook for 5 minutes. Add seasonings and cook until cauliflower is tender but not mush. Finally mix in the scrambled egg. 

ENJOY!!!!
