Just like you, we struggle to get dinner on the table night after night (after night). While this is a sponsored post, all opinions are our own.
I have a picky eater on my hands. My oldest can’t get enough when it comes to pancakes, cinnamon rolls and uncooked spaghetti noodles (yes, you read that right. Weird. I know.)
The problem is, momma doesn’t approve of only eating those starchy sweet treats! However, my picky one does like cauliflower and is always begging to go out for fried rice. When we had the opportunity to partner with Produce for Kids, I knew just the recipe we needed to try: cauliflower fried rice.
I will admit it, I had seen the cauliflower craze, but I was skeptic. But anything I can do to sneak a few extra veggies on the plate, I am willing to give it a try. Plus, when I involve the kids in the kitchen, for some reason the food always taste better to them! =)
Cauliflower Fried Rice
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 small RealSweet® sweet onion, finely diced
- 1 cup frozen peas and carrots mix
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 16 ounces Green Giant™ Fresh Cauliflower Crumbles®
- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 4 green onions, diced
Heat large skillet or wok over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add eggs and cook 2 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside. Return oil to heat and add oil, onion, peas and carrots, and garlic. Cook 4-5 minutes, or until softened. Increase heat to medium-high. Add cauliflower crumbles and soy sauce. Mix well, cover, and cook for 7-10, stirring frequently, or until cauliflower is tender. Remove from heat, mix in scrambled eggs, and top with green onions.
Adjustments from Mindi: I added cooked chicken and topped with cashews for a little bit of crunch!
My family gave this recipe 2 thumbs up, even the picky eater! Click here to view the full recipe and nutritional value.
In addition to delicious, healthy and quick recipes, Produce for Kids cares about our local community and feeding the hungry right here in SWMO. They have partnered with Associated Wholesale Grocer (AWG) in our area to support Feeding America® food banks. Many of those food banks are right here in Southwest Missouri. They are helping moms like you and I provide healthy meal options for their families–and that is a big deal!
Look for signage in your local AWG store in the produce department. When you see the signs, stock up on your produce and have peace of mind–not only are you providing your family with nutritious grocieries, you are helping others in our area too. And we think that is a win-win!
