  1. Wash all vegetables and chop them finely (the cauliflower the finest). You want to create a very fine cauliflower “grated mix”, so that it almost looks like “rice”.
  2. Bring water to a boil and boil fine cauliflower bits for 3-5 minutes. Drain well and set aside.
  3. In the meantime, finely mince the onion as well as the garlic and start frying them in a medium sized pan on medium heat with 1 tablespoon of oil. Once the onion garlic mix is golden brown, turn the heat down and season with salt & pepper and add all remaining ingredients– except for the egg and the herbs.
  4. Stir-fry the mix for 10 minutes and add the egg while scrambling it into the “fried rice” for another 2-3 minutes. Add the herbs at the very end for a few seconds of stir-frying and enjoy this light “fried rice” dish.

Nutrition Nation TIP: also works as a "shrimp fried rice version! YUM
