Who doesn’t love a big bowl of fried rice? Unfortunately, the traditional fried rice recipe can be high in sodium and saturated with greasy cooking oils, making it a far from healthy dinner option. If saying no to fat-filled take out, and yes to adding more vegetables into your diet, is on your list of cooking priorities, this is the recipe for you. Cauliflower Rice is a popular Paleo alternative to carb-heavy grains, and serves as a great vehicle to carry the “fried rice” flavors of soy (in this case, coconut aminos) and nitrate-free bacon. This vegetable rich dish is so filling and flavorful, you won’t even miss the rice. Plus, fewer carbs means fewer calories, which means guilt-free eating.
