This "fried rice" dish is one you can feel good about. Not only do you cut carbs by swapping white rice for riced cauliflower, but the recipe is packed with protein and an array of nutrients. For example, cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamins C and K, celery is high in essential minerals like folate along with potassium while the phytochemicals in onions help boost immunity and carrots deliver a nice dose of beta-carotene. Even better are the bold flavors. The ginger and garlic come through beautifully and the red pepper flakes add just the right amount of heat.
