It can be hard to stay on your healthy eating track when you're trying to eat nutritious food but you're craving something really yummy and satisfying. Shrimp fried rice is one of my very favorite things and one of the first thing that I crave when I decide to go on a more strict healthy eating plan.
The good news is that I found a healthy alternative to my beloved shrimp fried rice that won't derail my eating plan.
Riced cauliflower takes the place of the traditional rice in this shrimp fried cauliflower rice and its so good that Ben didn't even realize that he wasn't eating rice! It's seriously delicious and it's basically guilt free so go ahead and indulge in this tasty dish.
Shrimp Fried Cauliflower Rice
3 Tablespoons olive oil
10 oz. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
5 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup sliced green onions, sliced thin
16 ounces frozen riced cauliflower
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
Heat 2 T. oil in skillet. Add 3/4 c. green onions and cauliflower. Cook 5 minutes without stirring, until browned.
Add shrimp and remaining green onions to each bowl.
In the interest of full disclosure - Ben and I were the only ones home to eat this delicious meal. The kids missed out but Im really curious to know what their reaction to would have been to the riced cauliflower. I am going to have to make this again and let them try it. I suspect that they will love it just as much as we did.
