Simple Stir-Fry Over Cauliflower Rice

Wow, sorry this wasn’t up sooner. I know I posted on my instagram (@viciousfitness) that it would be up about, umm, a week ago? Yeah, eek, my bad.

I’ll post it, right after I tell you about my weekend :). It wasn’t very eventful… super intrigued now, right? Sunday was the best part because it was SO FREAKING NICE OUT! FINALLY. And it’s supposed to snow again on Wednesday despite the fact that it is 80 today. What is wrong with this state? Hello, California, I’m coming for ya! I got to wear pretty clothes, though.

But yesterday the boy and I ran errands and went shopping and bought materials to build a garden in his backyard! YAY! We already planted the seeds in little pots and they are all starting to sprout. I’m excited because it means fresh veggies if he’s successful at being a plant parent. Fingers crossed. 

I got a sifter at the thrift store, too, so that I can be a better coconut flour baker! So excited. $.80 vs. $10 at the regular store- WIN!

(old school, I know. And, no, it’s not a strainer.)

Then we grilled pizzas… not 100% paleo, but I cheat sometimes. Get over it. They were gluten free and I put fresh tomato on mine (instead of sauce), spinach, onion and sausage with daiya cheese. We grilled zucchini, too! They were pretty darn good.

Okay, sorry, sorry, on to the recipe! This is super simple and I’m sure you’ve all done it before but it’s the spices that make it and I figured I’d post a simple meal you can make in case you forgot how to do that or are brain dead and have no idea what to make. It’s protein and veggie filled, which is perfect for the Lyme diet (just leave out any spices you may have an aversion to)

Ingredients:

1 lbs. ground beef or ground turkey

1 large onion

1 zuchinni

1 yellow sqash

2-3 bell peppers of varying colors 

1 LARGE tomato or 3 little ones

1 large head cauliflower

olive oil for sautéing 

1 tbs. coconut oil

1 tbs. paprika

1 tsp. ground chili flakes

1 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. cayenne

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. garlic salt

1 tsp. basil

salt and pepper to taste

 

Mix all your spices together in a bowl. 

Chop up all your vegetables into small bite size pieces.  Heat some olive oil over medium/medium-high heat in a BIG skillet and add your peppers. After a couple minutes add the rest of your veggies. Add 2/3 of your mixed spices.

While your veggies are sauteing, mix the rest of your spices to the ground meat and start cooking that good stuff up in a separate pan. 

Once meat and veggies are cooked put them all in a big bowl and mix together. Taste and add more salt/pepper if needed.

Now, chop up your cauliflower and then place it into a magic bullet/blender/ninja/whatever you have to “rice” your cauliflower. Blend until it looks like rice, basically, don’t smoothie it up. Heat up your coconut oil in the skillet you cooked the veggies in and/or pour any fat drippings from cooking the meat into that skillet. Add the cauliflower rice and cook for about 10-15 minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper plus some extra paprika and stirring often.

Once your cauliflower is done, place on a plate and top with the veggie-meat mixture. Eat it. Serves 4 or lasts YOU the week. I’m going to be a terrible wife because whenever I make food I’m never going to want to share it….

Author: Lemons 'n Lyme

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)

  1. The pizzas looked great! Love the long skirt :)!

  2. Nice concept with the Cauliflower. Cauliflower rice, never seen that one one before. Though I did see broccoli pasta. I also use what you have in the photo to sift flour for my baking.

    The way you wrote this post Victoria shows you have an upbeat disposition, I am glad for you. And yes the weather is strange. Same going on here in Idaho. Don’t go to California just yet. They are having blazing fires right now. I grew up there as a kid and never did I see so many fires that Calif. has had the past 5 or 6 years. Wiil I guess that global warming for you!!

    Hope to see you at my blog Fun with Food (www.savorthefood.com/blog ).

    Take care Lemons and have a good weekend. 🙂
