Cauliflower fried rice with bacon

August 31, 2015

If any of you know me well from my Instagram profile, then you know I don’t have the best relationship with veggies 😉 In all my life I have never been a big veggie eater, and I have tried to like them I promise! I do eat some, but it’s pretty limited.. I kept seeing cauliflower rice popping up on my Instagram account and while I was skeptical I thought I would give it a go. I am not a fan of cauliflower on it’s own but I do thoroughly enjoy it in a blended soup. When I was in my 20’s I had a roommate that would make me the best bacon fried rice and I swear I could eat bowl after bowl of it. So I thought if I am going to try this cauliflower version out then I might as well make the most of it, and one way to get me to eat a vegetable would be adding bacon 😉 Now I am not going to lie to you, to me it does not taste like rice, however to my surprise and delight it was amazing! I gobbled up a huge bowl and I will definitely be making more versions of this! 🙂
