Recipe

Did anyone else notice that tomorrow is the official first day of summer? Really! It feels like January was last week. I know, I know everyone always talks about how fast time is passing, but seriously. Also from the deluge of emails this past week requesting <a href="">low carb recipes</a>, it sounds I am not the only one shocked by the sudden onslaught on summer. It sounds like lots of folks are going low carb to cut those final pounds before having to put on a bathing suit. And the most common question in those emails is about sides. So today, in the spirit of low carb recipes and sides, I wanted to share one of my favorite side dishes, made from cauliflower rice.

  3. Add the remaining vegetable oil and sesame oil to the hot pan. Add the scallions, cabbage, carrot, garlic, ginger, and any other veggies you like. Cook for 1-2 minutes until they just begin to soften.
  4. Add the cauliflower rice and cook for 2-4 more minutes, stirring constantly, until the rice begins to crisp up.
  5. Add the soy sauce and egg. Stir together and cook for 1 more minute.
