I think that in a previous life, I must have been the daughter or grand-daughter of Martha Stewart. We share so many interests and her recipes are to die for. One of my families favorite is her Cauliflower Rice Stir-Fry. As a child, my mom rarely made us meals that included Cauliflower because she hated the smell it would exert. About a year or two ago, she came across this recipe. I can assure you that we eat this at least one a month in our house; my grandma even enjoyed it when she was visiting and now she makes it at home in France.
If you can’t eat any gluten, this is your kind of recipe. Normally, Stir-Fry is served with rice, gluten free, or noodles, not gluten free. Rice and pasta are both starchy and if you want to eat strictly veggies, don’t search anywhere else. The wait is over…Thanks Martha Stewart. This recipe will clean up your fridge, pantry (or wherever you store all your vegetables) from all your veggies. This masterpiece is rich in flavor, so rich that it will make you want to only eat vegetables.
