Cauliflower Fried Rice

18 Jan

rice coverToday I’ll share one of my favourite meal-prep recipe: Vegan Cauliflower Fried Rice.
This one is such a robust and fast recipe. It takes 10-12 minutes if you haven’t prepped the veggies in advance and only 5-6 minutes if you have the veggies prepped.
I use a smaller wok. I cook on induction. Heat the wok on high. It will get hot in a few seconds and ready for you to create the perfect stir-fry. This vegan cauliflower rice recipe only has 4/5 ingredients. I pulse the cauliflower only 3-5 times in the processor to make coarse cauliflower rice

Ingredients
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon dried onion
1/2 carrot, finely diced
1/2 cup cherries tomato chopped
1/2 zucchini, finely sliced
1 tablespoon tamari or light soy sauce
dash of white pepper
1/4 teaspoon sea salt flakes

Make cauliflower rice – Wash and pat dry cauliflower with a paper towel. Remove the green leaves and woody bits of the stalk attached to the leaves. Break florets into a bowl/plate and try to include as much of the stalk as you can. Place cauliflower florets and stalks in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the food processor 4-5 times to get coarse cauliflower rice. Remove to a bowl. Heat a wok or frying pan on high heat.
rice baseAdd oil. When it starts smoking add ginger, onion and tomato. Using a wooden spatula, stir-fry the ginger and tomato for a minute.
rice veggiesAdd carrots and zucchini. Stir-fry for another minute.
rice friedAdd cauliflower rice, tamari, white pepper and salt. Mix well. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly to cook the rice evenly. At the end of 3-4 minutes the cauliflower will be al-dente (just cooked).
rice detailsRemove from heat and stir through the spring onion. Serve hot with nutritional yeast.

Have a nice day!

Oatmeal: variation on a theme

11 Jan

oat_coverBoring oatmeal, no more.
Oatmeal is one of my favorite food to start my day. It’s really quick to make (either on the stove or in the microwave), it’s nutritious, and it keeps me full for longer than a lot of breakfast options out there. You can top your porridge with pretty much anything to be fair – some toppings being more healthy than others. But sometimes you just run out of inspiration and with this post I’ll provide you some very easy and simple ideas!

Like you notice the base is all the same: oatmeal and banana and it’s because I’m literally obsessed with the delicious taste that is made with this combination. Add oats, water or plant based milk, maple syrup, to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a boil, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer until the oats have thickened Remove from heat and add different type of fruits.
