Chicken Pineapple Cauliflower Fried Rice
What can I say? I was too hungry to wait to eat to take a picture. In my defense, I did prepare this immediately after arriving home from a 630 mile drive. Can you blame me?
I needed something quick. Thankfully, I had all the ingredients on hand and my son, Eric, was home so I called from the road and requested that he pull out some chicken breast to thaw. The result was a veggie-loaded dish MINUS the usual egg and actual rice. I needed it to be quick and cooking rice would take too long. It looked like Fried Rice, (you have to take my word for it) and it tasted like Fried Rice.
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, diced
1/4 cup raw cashews, rough chopped
1/2 cup fresh or frozen pineapple, diced
1 chicken breast, small cube dice
1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
1 tsp. chopped garlic
Crushed Red Chili flakes - to your liking
1 12 oz. package frozen Cauliflower Rice
1 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 cup Tamari or Liquid Aminos
1) In a large saute pan, or wok, saute your onion, celery, carrots, and chicken until veggies are tender, but still have a slight crunch and chicken pieces are mostly cooked through.
2) Add in the cashews and pineapple - continue to cook for about 2 minutes.
3) Add in the ginger, garlic, and chili flakes as well as the Cauliflower Rice. Stir to combine.
4) Add in the sesame oil and Tamari and stir to combine and heat.
