sweet potato fried cauliflower


Man this semester has already gotten away from me. I’m not terribly busy, but I have an awful case of senioritis and have been procrastinating most things.. It’s pretty bad. But lately I have been thinking of more recipes, so I’ll have more in the next few weeks.

Anyways, I’m going to try and do better. Healthy eating is great, but is so difficult to find something that’s good for you and doesn’t leave you hungry. I also need to focus on gluten free options, as I’ve known I’m intolerant to it for a year, but my reactions have gotten much worse. Any little bit messes me up, so a lot of the recipes coming up as well are going to be gluten free. I hope that doesn’t scare anyone away, I promise it’s good!!

Today’s recipe was kind of impromptu, and it wasn’t even the one I wanted to make this week.. it just kind of happened! I’m so glad it did though, because it’s so tasty and can be used as a meal itself or a side dish to other recipes (the best of both worlds, right?). Keep reading for the recipe for sweet potato fried “rice!”

What you’ll need:

  • Green Giant riced cauliflower (you can use actual cauliflower and do it that way, but this has extra veggies in it and it’s so easy to put into a pan)
  • 1 or 2 small sweet potatoes, cooked and diced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar (you can just kind of eyeball this, I’m not actually sure how much I used)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic, or one clove
  • Pepper to taste

What to do:

  • Okay so before you start cooking, you’ll want to make sure that the sweet potatoes are cut up and diced. I had already cooked my sweet potatoes a few days ago, so it was very easy to do this.
  • After that is done, in a large oiled pan, add the cauliflower rice and cook on medium high until it is no longer frozen.
  • Next, add a teaspoon of garlic and the sweet potatoes; stir and cook along with the rice.
  • In a separate pan, scramble your eggs.
  • Once those are almost done, add to your large pan and stir around, sprinkling in a little pepper for taste.
  • In a small bowl, add the soy sauce, ginger, and brown sugar and stir well.
  • Add the sauce mixture to your pan and stir well.
  • Once the sauce is mixed through, you’re done!

I really liked this recipe, it was so simple and yet so tasty. With this recipe you can add other meat like beef or chicken, and it would be so good.. I just forgot to thaw mine out!

All in all, this recipe cost less than $10. And I have so much leftover! It’s definitely worth it to change things up a bit. I hope that if you make this that you enjoy it as much as I did (and will continue to)!

Until next time friends!
