Thai Paleo Fried “Rice”

This dish can easily be adjusted to a vegetarian or vegan version by omitting the meat and honey. I have also made it with ground chicken and turkey, but I like it much better with ground or shredded pork or left over carnitas.

Ingredients:

1 head of cauliflower
1 lb of ground pork
1 medium chopped red onion
2 medium shredded carrots
1 medium diced zucchini
4 minced garlic cloves
2 tbsp of chopped fresh basil
3 tbsp of coconut aminos (soy sauce replacement)
2-3 tbsp of date paste or 1- 1 1/2 tbsp of honey
1/2 tbsp of fresh finely shredded ginger
2 tbsp of sesame oil
1 tbsp of olive or coconut oil
1 tbsp of lemon juice
Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste

Preparation:

  • In a large skillet sauté the onions, garlic and ginger, on medium-high heat, until onions are soft
  •  Add in the ground pork and continue to cook until done.
  • Stir constantly and break down the large clusters of meat.
  • Add the rest of the vegetables except the cauliflower and cook until tender
  • In a food processor pulse in the cauliflower until it’s the size of rice.
  • Add the cauliflower and the rest of the ingredients to the skillet, mix, cover and continue to cook for about 4-6 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.
