Chinese Food Galore

I have been craving some Chinese food but being on a diet limits things a bit…. I did my research and came up with cauliflower “fried rice”. It’s pretty amazing and my family of 5 loved it!

I first cooked some Sesame Chicken and veggie stir fry  to go with it.

Buy a head of cauliflower or a bag of fresh (not frozen) chop it up some and place them in the blender and blend away to make it fine pieces…

heat 1tsp sesame oil sauté 1/4 Yellow Onion, 1 cup of carrots and 1 cup of peas ( you can always do 1/2 cups if you’d rather do that, but i like my veggies)

then add 1TBSP Minced Garlic, 1TBSP Minced Ginger and the cauliflower cook for about 5 more min. then make a hole in the cauliflower

add 3 scrambled eggs (optional, its great without eggs too)

add 1TBSP low sodium soy sauce

then once its all cooked you can fill a green container of it.

That my friends is a normal size plate! excuse my fine china 🙂

1Red, 2Green, 1/4 Yellow (the peas)

Cottage cheese… WHAT!?

So I decided for better or worst I would try cottage cheese. I know I know… WHY!? Turns out it’s not as bad as you would think. It’s actually pretty darn good! So here is what I did…

First get your red container and fill it with cottage cheese

next and this is all by taste sprinkle in some onion powder, minced garlic, parsley, a little sea salt and pepper…. if you have chives use that instead of the onion powder.

then spread it on a flat out… amazing wraps 1 is only 1 yellow!

 

Then fill your green container with thinly sliced cucumber and spinach then pile it on top and roll it like a burrito.

1red, 1yellow, and 1green 🙂
