Simply Good: Cauliflower-rice fry

This is part of a series of recipes that are easy and very simple to make. They are also inexpensive, full of nutrients and delicious.

I constantly hear from people that they do not have time to make a meal for themselves and that a quick fix is all that they want ( by quick fix they mean a sandwich with some processed topping or a bar of chocolate) . I think that this is a false approach, i think that we should make the time to prepare meals for ourselves of course we do not need to spend hours and hours in the kitchen ( unless you like that) however i do think that we should cook for ourselves its an act of self love and in order for you to do all the things that are eating your time you need to fuel yourself properly first.

This recipe is easy and full of nutrients as it is made up veggies and some more veggies.

Ingredients:


Vegetables

1 1/2 cup of cauliflower florets ( ‘Rice’)

1 celery stalk

1/2 cup of leek

2 Carrots chopped

crushed garlic (optional)

some chopped parsley

half  a red paprika

squeeze of lemon juice


Spices

**1/2 tsp of red ras al hanout spice ( or any other spice that you like you can get creative here)

1/2 teaspoon of paprika

pinch of cayenne pepper


Oil

1/2 tsp Coconut oil


Other things

1tbsp of tomato puree

1 tsp of Miso red paste

1 cup of water

Tahini ( optional)


Method:

Start by chopping up the cauliflower into very small pieces. If you have a food processor than place the florets in there and chop them to a rice consistency.

Place a pan on a medium high stove top and add in the oil.

Place the leek, celery and garlic into the pan and Saute for 1 minute.

Add in the cauliflower followed by the carrots and the spices and cook for 3 minutes constantly tossing everything together to avoid the veggies from getting burnt.

Place in the Miso  and tomato puree, mix eveything well. Add the water and reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

cook to a consistency that you prefer i do not like overcooked veggies so 5 minutes is enough for me.

serve with a squeeze of lemon juice, parsley, a dub of tahini and some freshly raw chopped up paprika.
