Cauliflower Faux Fried Rice

Faux Fried Rice (Actifry)

This Cauliflower Faux Fried Rice is a pretty darned good imitation of fried rice. It's a quarter of the calories of regular fried rice, leaving you wiggle room for some nice extras on your plate; spring roll anyone? And because you don't have to boil rice first, it's actually faster and more fool proof than real fried rice.

  • Put in the Actifry™ bowl all the ingredients up to and including the lemon juice.
  • Peel the cauliflower head, wash it. Cut it into smallish florets; don't leave in large pieces. Place florets a few at a time into the bowl of a food processor and whiz them just until it is broken down to the size of rice or wheat grains. Empty that into the Actifry bowl, and repeat until you've processed all the cauliflower.
  • Drain the can of water chestnuts, chop coarsely, add to Actifry.
  • Turn Actifry on; cook for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, add the peas and the drained mushrooms (optional at this stage: add some chopped fresh coriander or 1/2 teaspoon coriander paste from a tube.) Let cook for another 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a frying pan sprayed lightly with cooking spray cook the 1/2 cup (125 ml) of egg substitute to make a solid omelette. Turn the omelette out onto a cutting board, chop it up. When the 15 minutes are up, add it to the rice mixture and cook for a final 5 minutes.


Serve hot.
Optional: garnish with fresh chopped green onion.
