Chicken Fried Rice Recipe (Paleo Version)

This is a wonderful paleo alternative to the Chinese version of chicken fired rice.
The cauliflower works very well as a rice substitute and is absolutely delicious!!

1-large cauliflower
2- pounds boneless,skinless chicken breast or thigh
2- large carrots grated
1- cup sliced mushrooms
2- eggs
2-3 green onions diced
7- Tablespoons coconut oil,butter or ghee(clarified butter, usually not problematic if dairy sensitive)
1- teaspoon garlic granules or 3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon organic ginger powder
salt to taste
3- Tablespoons coconut aminos (resembles a light soy sauce,but is wheat and gluten free)
or your favorite fermented organic soy sauce
 Note: Here is a wonderful Tamari (wheat free) organic soy sauce to try.
It is always best to consume only fermented soy products.

Optional:  3/4 cups lightly steamed green peas

Cook chicken over medium heat in 2 tablespoons oil till done. Set aside to cool before dicing.
Pulse the uncooked cauliflower in your food processor until it resembles the texture of rice.
Heat a large size pan on medium high heat with 3 tablespoons,butter,coconut oil or ghee..

Next stir-fry your carrots and mushrooms  in 2 tablespoons oil of choice over medium high heat for about 4-5 minutes.

Cover on low heat while you are cooking the scrambled eggs in another pan.
Break eggs up into small pieces before adding them into the stir-fry with seasonings , salt(to taste),
coconut aminos and half of the diced green onions.
Now is a good time to add in your lightly steamed peas if you are using them.
Mix well and top with remaining green onions before serving.
