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 sautĂ©ing 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 sautĂ©ing 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

Stir-fry, Asian Style!

I love stir-fried veggies, all different kinds. Throw them in a pan, let them cook and eat. So easy. I have been craving an Asian style flavored stir-fry, without the soy/sodium, so I threw one together last night (also inspired by the veggies that needed to be used).

Asian Stir-Fry

  • Veggies of your choosing
  • Chopped garlic cloves
  • Dried ginger
  • Kosher salt/pepp
  • Coconut oil
  • Coconut aminos

I started by melting a little coconut oil in the pan, and adding the more firm veggies-chopped garlic and onion. I sauteed until half-way cooked, then added the two kinds of zucchini and mushrooms. I seasoned with kosher salt/pepp/dried ginger, and let cook:DSC_0113It didn’t take long until they were done, so I threw them in a bowl and tossed them in coconut aminos, a substitute for soy sauce. Lower in sodium, organic, gluten free, non-gmo, dairy free, soy free, etc. It satisfied the craving without being over-powering.DSC_0115
