Fried Rice…with no Rice

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”

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.DSC_0342

  1. 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!

  2. 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?

  3. 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!
