Recently I discovered a Panda Express near me, and though I enjoyed the panda in my past, and it brings me back to my time on campus at Michigan State University, I know that it is not the least bit healthy, and I’m pretty sure it is far from authentic.
A few weeks ago, I had a taste for Chinese food. So, I thought about what I might like to have if I could do something fast, uncomplicated, healthy, and with ingredients that I had on hand, in other words, fast, healthy and cheap, in no particular order. I came across several renditions of this cauliflower fried rice recipe and decided to finally try the cauliflower ricing technique. This technique is very simple, you use the small grater and grate the cauliflower head into small rice like pieces of the cauliflower.

I took the bowl of the grated cauliflower and heated it in the microwave for about 4.5 minutes, because I was going to continue to cook it on the stove. I also sliced up some green onions put a side about one half of a cup of frozen peas and carrot mix.
I heated a frying pan with olive oil and added the white of the green onion and the frozen vegetables and one lightly beated egg

Once the egg was partially lightly scrambled, I added the cauliflower, and once the pan ingredients were mixed well, I added the soy sauce (too taste) and also Sriracha sauce, because I like a bit of heat.
And of course everything is sexier with a fried egg on top. I have decided that this cauliflower fried rice recipe will absolutely be a go to staple recipe for me. You can’t beat it, its cheap, easy and healthy, and a great way to get a good amount of vegetables in.
