I don’t eat rice anymore. It’s high glycemic, gmo, nutritionally void food, in my opinion. I don’t really miss it, either (or what it did to my blood sugar).
I completely and accidentally stumbled upon this recipe last week when I had to use or lose my bag of broccoli slaw. When I started cooking, the last thing on my mind was rice. But it looked a lot like rice…so I went with it 🙂
“No Rice Fried Rice”
- 1 bag broccoli slaw (I had Trader Joe’s)
- 6 eggs
- Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil
- Kosher salt/Pepp
- Coconut Aminos
That’s it! 5 simple ingredients. I started by sautéing the entire bag of organic broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s (it’s the only place I’ve seen broccoli slaw like this. Shredded carrots and shredded broccoli stalk), in a little Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil. I lightly seasoned with kosher salt/pepp, and continued sautéing until it had really cooked down. I broke 4 eggs into the same pan, and began stirring (thinking this would just be a yummy scramble). Then it started to resemble fried rice, but needed more egg, so I broke two more in the pan. I cooked for maybe 10 minutes longer, stirring constantly making sure the egg was cooked thoroughly and broken up well. Since it looked so much like fried rice, I decided to treat it as such, and sprinkle with coconut aminos (soy-free soy sauce, therefore gluten free!), it was TO-DIE-FOR. What the heck. Re-heated even better the next day! So easy and flavorful.
I am T1D 3 1/2 years, in the same food adventure as you… I have decided that upstate NY needs Trader Joes! Love your blog, love your food creativity … Keep sharing!
Wow, thanks Jean! Everywhere needs a Trader Joe’s 😉 You could always get shredded cabbage/carrot mix, and try that? Hope you’re well and thanks for reading!!
I’m so excited to try this 🙂 I’m new to your blog and looking forward to reading it. 🙂
I hope you like it, and welcome 🙂
Making this right now. Smells great, tasting soon……
Woohoo! Hope you like it!!
I think you should come home and make this for me and dad!!! What the heck are coconut aminos? Looks delicious, think it would work with egg beaters?
Coconut Aminos is a much healthier soy sauce substitute, read more here, so much healthier! http://www.coconutsecret.com/aminos2.html Also, you could try to make this dish with egg beaters, but honestly, they’re so horrible for you. Read about them here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4856709 What they do to your body is disgusting and a little frankenstein-ish.
I made this this weekend and loved it! I only used 4 eggs instead of six but it was awesome! And like you said, even better the next day! Thanks for sharing that recipe!
Awesome Jeanette, so glad you liked it! It definitely could’ve made it with only 4 eggs…but I was feeling extra eggy that day 😉
I made this several months ago and decided to add more eggs and onions the next time: egg foo young!!
