What do you need to prepare Thai riced cauliflower?
You will need a large skillet or a large wok, so you don't mess your whole kitchen. That's why this Thai keto meal is a recipe of choice for every busy keto mom. Imagine! One wok and few minutes to prepare delicious keto meal from the scratch!
Riced cauliflower - keto rice
I always grate my cauliflower and prepare fresh cauliflower rice. I know that now it's possible to buy frozen or fresh riced cauliflower in regular stores. How great is that!? Literally you can make your delicious keto stir fry in few minutes! And this version of low carb stir fry with cauliflower is really tasty, not even mentioning nutritional value of cauliflower instead of rice.
Proteins with riced cauliflower
You will prepare scrambled egg in wok plus another source of protein. I use shrimp or prawns. You can use chicken or mushrooms and tofu for vegetarian version or something else that you like.
Soy sauce and oyster sauce in keto recipes
I use 1 TBS of soy sauce and 1 TBS of oyster sauce in this recipe. Sauces are what is giving that authentic Thai flavor to this dish. If you want to avoid soy, you can use coconut aminos. Coconut aminos are low glycemic and gluten free - very good alternative to soy sauce. Keto people are using that a lot instead of a soy sauce. Fish sauce is also popular, so you might use that if you like. Oyster sauce is having a little bit more carbs so if you want to reduce the carbs even more, skip the oyster sauce. In that case you will probably have to put sam salt. But, without the taste and aroma of the oyster sauce, it won't be the same. So, it's better to save your carbs somewhere else and use this oyster sauce.
How to make Thai fried cauliflower rice?
You just need 5 minutes of time to fry everything in a large wok dish. First you need to heat the oil and gradually add finely chopped onion. When onion is translucent add shrimp.
When you notice that shrimp are becoming orange colored, push onion and shrimp on one side and scramble eggs.
When you are done with eggs, add riced cauliflower, powdered garlic and sauces. Stir everything for 2 minutes, add chopped green onion, stir and eat!
For extra flavor and to add more fat to your meal, drizzle finished fried cauliflower rice with non refined sesame oil or peanut oil. That gives more flavor besides healthy fats. If you want to have more flavor and smell, you can add some fresh lime juice on top.
If you like Thai food, you will like this recipe. You can have this dish for your keto breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can even make it in the evening and have it reheated for breakfast. It will be still delicious!
