SHRIMP CAULIFLOWER FRIED RICE

Whenever I think Asian food I think fried rice because my kids really love it. Especially the mall version. You have got to admit some are pretty good. But cutting down on the carbs for us adults is the key to that slimmer figure we all hope for, Which is why I made this shrimp fried rice with cauliflower instead of rice. Nothing wrong with making healthier versions of your favorite take-out food and you will love this Shrimp Cauliflower Fried Rice.

You can certainly switch out the shrimp with chicken if you like. My kids really prefer chicken over shrimp. Only two of my children love shrimp so we don’t cook with shrimp that often. That being said I love shrimps. It’s by far my favorite seafood even though you can certainly benefit more from other types of seafood like salmon that’s high in omega.

    I recently discovered I’m allergic to eggs. Anything else I can add so I don’t feel like km missing the egg?

      You can totally make it without eggs! But if you want to replace eggs when baking you can sub one egg for 1/4 cup apple sauce or 1 tablespoon of flaxseed mixed with 3 tbps of water. Keep in mind that they may not be as fluffy as using eggs. Hope this helps!
