I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE fried rice. This is not EXACTLY like my old passion food ... being cauliflower it IS texturally more crispy-crunchy. But it DOES have all the flavor ... and all the ingredients.

 grapeseed oil, ghee, or coconut oil
 2 large eggs, beaten
 1 cup chopped scallions, light and green parts separated (5-6 scallions)
 3 garlic cloves, minced
 1 tbsp fresh ginger from a 1-inch knob, minced
 1 2-lb head cauliflower (or use 2 pounds "ready-to-cook" cauliflower rice [I used a one-pound bag and it made tons ... halve the recipe])
 4-5 Tbsp Gluten Free soy sauce
 ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
 1 tsp sugar (I use Lakanto)
 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
 1 tsp rice vinegar
 1 tsp toasted sesame oil (or to taste)
 ¼ cup chopped cashews or peanuts (optional)
 cut-up ham, BBQ pork, chicken, seasoned tempeh, etc. (optional)

Grate the cauliflower in a food processor fitted with a grating disc. Alternately, grate on the large holes of a box or handheld grater. Set aside (skip this step if using "ready to cook" cauliflower)


Heat 2 tsp. oil or ghee in a large (10 to 12-inch) nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the eggs and a pinch of salt and scramble until the eggs are cooked. Transfer to a small plate or bowl and set aside. Wipe the pan clean.


Add 3 Tbsp. of oil to the pan and set over medium heat. Add the light scallions, garlic, and ginger and cook, stirring often, until softened but not browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the grated cauliflower and cook, stirring often, about 3 to 4 minutes.


Add the soy sauce, red pepper flakes, sugar, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Cook a minute or so, stirring often, until the mixture is coated with soy sauce; taste and add more if needed


Add the peas and carrots and continue to cook until the "rice" is tender-crisp and the vegetables are warmed through.


Stir in the rice vinegar, sesame oil, dark green scallions, nuts and meat (if using) and eggs. Taste and adjust seasoning. Serve hot.
