Califlower "Fried Rice" Recipie & Battle of the Bread Basket!
1. Ask the waitress not to bring the bread- This is ideal! As long as the people you are with don't mind
2. Ask your friends to move it on the otherside of the table from you- I am lucky to have the support of my friends when it comes to most food battles, so if you have the same, they will have no problem moving it to one side. This helps to keep you hand from crawling into that tempting basket.
3. Get a Drink and a Straw- Sip on water or iced tea or coffee while you wait for your meal. This will help you keep your moth busy and hopefully fight off a little bit of the hunger.
4. Think about your meal- Hopefully what you ordered actually will satisfy you and sounds good. Since resturant portions are normally huge, focus on "not ruining your meal". know that your food is comming! Don't Stress.
5. Order a side salad- If it is a resturaunt where you know you will be waiting a while to eat, get a starter salad so you can eat like everyone else.
6. If all else fails- imagine the least healthy, overweight, diseased version of yourself....eating all of it. for me this idea is pretty gross and sad. Fear is a pretty strong emotion, so if it resorts to this: Fear the Basket :)
Cauliflower "Fried Rice"
Directions Grate the cauliflower in a food processor. Spray a large pan and saute (over medium-high heat) garlic. After about a minute add califlower and Sesame oil. Don't stir constantly, but move it around every once in a while. You want the cauliflower to get slightly browned. Once it is, add in shredded carrot and Soy Sauce (gluten free) for the last 30 seconds. Move the mixture to one side of the pan. On the clear side, pour in scrabbled eggs and cook. Stir together the two mixtures. Serve and garnish with the green onions (for a nice crunch and flavor).
Note: this recipe makes a lot! Like 4 cups, so if its just you, I hope you like left overs. Also, this recipe re-heats quite well and can be mixed with a variety of toppings! Its best when eaten with
