Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion small, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed vegetables frozen, diced (defrost before using)
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons lite soy sauce more or less to taste

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onions and mushrooms until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain off any liquid and add remaining ingredients. Stir-fry until veggies are tender, about 10 minutes.

Notes

Cauliflower rice can be purchased in the freezer section of most grocery stores. If cauliflower rice is unavailable, add one head of cauliflower florets to a food processor and pulse until the consistency of rice. A grater can be used in place of a food processor, using the small holes.

  1. This sounds really yummy. I usually add a lightly scrambled egg at the end of cooking. Would this and/ or a little cooked chicken work in this recipe to add protein for a main-dish meal?
