4 to 6 cups cauliflower rice, frozen (or 1 large cauliflower riced in a food processor)
2 T sesame oil
Garlic, 2 cloves
1 cup broccoli florets (chopped small)
½ yellow onion, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 cup green peas, frozen (edemame also works)
Baby Bok choy (optional)
Scallions (for garnish, optional)
Cilantro (for garnish, optional)
For the sauce:
1 T sesame oil
¼ cup Tamari
½ to 1 tsp Siracha or garlic chili sauce (add less or more, depending on spice preference)
2 T Manuka honey
2 T natural peanut or almond butter
- Mix the sauce. Set aside.
- Place 1 T oil in a large pan or wok. Heat just above medium. Add onion, broccoli, red pepper, peas, and Bok choy and carrots (if using), and sauté until crispy tender. Set aside.
- If using a whole cauliflower, wash, trim, and cut into large chunks. Run each chunk through a food processor to create a rice-like texture. Place 1 T oil in a pan and heat over medium. Add garlic and cauliflower rice to the pan, stir to coat in oil and cook, covered, stirring occasionally 5 to 8 minutes until slightly browned and tender (but not too tender).
- Add vegetable mixture to rice. Heating over low heat, add desired amount of sauce. Serve warm, topped with cilantro and scallions if desired.
