This is quickly becoming one of our go to recipes when needing something quick. This Healthy Ham Fried Cauli-Rice is a super easy recipe to make and very family friendly.
We remember our kids coming home from school with their friends the first time we made it. We didn’t tell them there was cauliflower in place of the normal white rice we typically used. Half way through the meal we told them. They all started to look closely at the riced cauliflower and still couldn’t believe it. It was great seeing their reactions and still gobbling it down.
We love all the fresh ingredients used to make this Healthy Ham Fried Cauli-Rice. Most of the ingredients we just have on hand so we can create it anytime we want. You too can buy all these ingredients and keep them in your freezer for a last minute meal idea!
You can now purchase riced cauliflower from Costco, Trader Joes, Sprouts and so many places. If you’re having a hard time finding it in the fresh produce section, try the frozen, it works just as well!
One ingredient you might not be familiar with is coconut animos. Coconut aminos is made from organic coconut tree sap and has 65% less sodium than regular soy sauce. It’s soy free, GMO free, and gluten free. Coconut Aminos is one of those health changes we’re so glad we made.
You can find coconut aminos at most grocery stores, it’s amazing how people are demanding clean products and regular stores are starting to stock these types of items.
We hope your family enjoys our Healthy Ham Fried Cauli-Rice as much as our family! Go try it, we promise you won’t be disappointed. It’s seriously one of our go to quick meals that is full of nutrients and flavor!!
