Fried Rice (not rice)

The other night we made Grain free Prawn Bibimbap (want the recipe? Let me know) for dinner and I’ll tell you it was awesome. Check the Instagram pics of the asian fusion we had.
Anyway I had leftovers (YES I KNOW) so I combined the cauliflower rice with some other vegetables I had in the fridge added a few prawns and bacon and ended up with a great veggie packed fried rice alternative to have with a protein for lunch and dinner.

My recipe calls for spiralized vegetables, I cannot recommend the ‘Spirooli’ enough as it makes meal prep, grainfree living and the kids excited about vegetables. If you’re after one thing in your kitchen you need to seriously consider one of these
