Shrimp Fried “Rice”

I got the idea for “rice” made from cauliflower from Well Fed- my favorite new cookbook as of late. I was skeptical, as I’m sure most of you are, but after a short whirl in the food processor and a little stir fry in the cast iron, the cauliflower really did resemble a grain dish. It was more like cous cous in my opinion, but Shrimp Fried Cous Cous doesn’t roll off the tongue quite like Fried Rice does. Serves 1-2.

1/2 head cauliflower
1/4 lb. shrimp
Olive oil
Juice from half a lime
2 Tbsp Gluten free soy sauce
Cajun Spices (paprika, cayenne, garlic all to taste)
2 large carrots
1/2 white onion
Green onions for garnish
Peel shrimp and place in a bowl along with 1 Tbsp olive oil, juice from 1/4th of a lime, 1 Tbsp soy sauce, cajun spices, salt and pepper. Mix well and allow to marinate.

Break up cauliflower head into florets and place into food processor. Pulse food processor 10-15 times for 1-2 seconds each until cauliflower is all broken up into tiny “rice” granules. Place “rice” into microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute. This preps it to be stir fried without turning mushy.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go saute up some kale, squeeze in a workout with a friend, and if we’re being honest, probably polish off that leftover chili dip.
