15 Minute Stir Fry: Low carb, healthy, fast and husband/kid approved

As a mom I’m always on the lookout for quick, easy, healthy food that my family will eat. My husband and I work full time so getting dinner on the table after work is a daily struggle. This recipe is Perfect for the “Oh Shit” night when you realize you didn’t plan anything, but your family will still need to be fed. Here are the basic ingredients, but one of the best things about this recipe is you can add almost any leftovers you have in the fridge.

Tonight I happened to have a leftover large chicken breast my husband grilled on Friday.

All you really need on hand is 2 bags of frozen riced Cauliflower, with or without added veggies, the kind I got had peas and carrots in it, a couple of eggs, garlic and soy sauce. I also added ginger and rice vinegar, but I think it would be fine if you didn’t have those.

Heat up a large pan to medium high heat, I went to 8 out of 10 on my dial, add oil. I used coconut oil because it does not smoke until it is really hot. Once the oil is hot add both bags of frozen riced Cauliflower, still frozen directly to the pan. Add any other leftover veggies you have in the fridge that need to be used up, I had half a bag of peas and carrots. Add garlic and ginger if you have it. Season with salt and pepper. Let it cook for about 5 minutes. Turn the heat down to medium low and make an empty spot in the middle of the pan, add oil. Add 1 egg per person, beaten lightly, I added 3 eggs here and it was about the right proportion. Scramble eggs by stirring constantly so they don’t stick. Mix everything together, add precooked chicken or other meat, a few tablespoons of soy sauce and rice vinegar if you have it. Let it cook on low for 5 minutes and serve!

The texture is not exactly the same as rice, but my husband who is a rice lover liked it and the 3 year old had three servings! I call that a win!

Other things that would be great in this dish: onion, bell peppers, bok choy, zucchini, squash, broccoli, asparagus. Any leftover meat such as steak, pork loin, bacon, ham, turkey.
