Cauliflower Stir Fry with Brown Rice

HealthyVegan's picture
This is the greatest trick for saving yourself from the late night starchy carbs that put on the pounds! You seriously won't believe how good it is.
  Long grain brown rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Olive oil 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cauliflower head 1⁄2 , chopped
  Red pepper 1 , chopped
  Paprika 1 Teaspoon
  Ground black pepper 1⁄4 Pinch
  Sea salt To Taste
  Lemon 1 , zested and juiced
  Lettuce 1 , torn into bite-size pieces
  Pumpkin seeds 4 Tablespoon, toasted (Or Handful)

1.Rinse the rice with water, drain, add 2 cups water for every 1 cup rice. Sprinkle a bit of sea salt in the water, bring it to a boil for a couple of minutes, then turn down to low and simmer for 45 minutes. Rice is fully cooked when it is dry and fluffy. Do not stir the rice while it is cooking.
2.Start the stir fry about 10 minutes before the rice is finished. Have the cauliflower and red pepper chopped and ready to go.
3.Zest and juice the lemon before you start the stir fry, and have all the spices out and ready. Heat a wok to medium-high heat. Add the oil and the cauliflower, and stir to keep the cauliflower moving.
4.Add the red pepper when the cauliflower begins to soften and continue moving the vegetables around the wok. Once the red pepper has softened slightly, add the spices and stir to coat the vegetables. Pour a small amount of water (1 Tbsp or so), or lemon juice if yours was particularly juicy, down the side of the wok and continue stirring until the vegetables have steamed slightly.
5.Once the water has evaporated, quickly add the lemon juice and zest and stir to combine. Remove from heat as soon as the vegetables are seasoned, stir the lettuce in to get the lemon around it, and serve over the rice. Top with some toasted pumpkin seeds.
