Sriracha Fried “Rice” 

Craving Chinese takeout but don’t want to ruin your healthy eating? This fried rice comes together in under 20 minutes, is loaded with veggies and protein, and has a secret ingredient that won’t leave you feeling guilty if you go for seconds! 

When I decided to try this recipe, I was a little hesitant. My husband is a huge rice fan, and taking that away would probably be noticed right away. 

See, there is actually no rice in this dish at all. In fact, riced cauliflower is used! 

When I served up dinner, I anxiously awaited some type of response from Dan, and all he said was that it tasted good! Once he grabbed his second helping, I spilled the beans. That right there should show you how delicious this is, and no one will have a clue how healthy their dinner is!
