This cauliflower rice stir fry recipe tastes better than take-out, with half the carbs! It's loaded with lots of veggies and topped with marinated tofu.
Comin' atcha with another cauliflower rice recipe! But this time – it's Asian-inspired with a sticky, spicy-sweet sauce and bite after bite of crunchy, colorful veggies. I'm a big fan of the marinated tofu but you can definitely omit it to speed up this recipe. Orrrrr alternatively, you could bake a big batch of it and use it for meal prepping throughout the week.
Why another cauliflower rice recipe, you ask? A) You guys really seemed to dig the Mexican version and B) cauliflower rice is SO versatile. This will most likely be the second of many variations. Is that cool with you? Ok, good.
Thursday morning – We had to be in West Denver by 9:30am (about a 1.5 hour drive), with Scout because... Clark got new eyeballs at LasikPLUS! And we had to stay over in Denver for his follow-up the next morning.
Getting into the car was a mad rush. I carried down our overnight bag with Scout's leash in one hand and my glorious, fresh piece of avocado toast in the other. Clark remembered our phone chargers halfway downstairs and dashed back up to get them. I was ONE INCH away from sitting my plate on top of the car when Scout took off at breakneck speed. Toast – flying through the air. Bag – thrown from my shoulder into the grass. Me – almost breaking an ankle on the curb while exclaiming "WTF dog?" Scout – casually fraternizing with the cutest blue heeler puppy ever (despite his standoffish, cranky owner.) Clark – Walking out from the house just in time to miss the whole scene and asking why my toast is on the ground. My toast – LANDED AVOCADO SIDE UP. So you can bet I still ate that shit when I got into the car.
Thursday afternoon and evening – Clark took the Lasik mandated 4-6 hour nap to rest his new eyes. I sat in the yard of our AirBNB reading Game of Thrones and getting a cute sunburn. Scout started acting funny and seemed "off." She seemed to perk up and feel better by bedtime.
Friday morning – Back at the Lasik place for his follow-up at 9am. Scout seemed stressed from staying somewhere new, traveling, etc.
Friday afternoon – We drove back to the Springs to shower and get ready for my cousins + friends to visit. Scout was super excited to meet everyone and get loved on.
Saturday morning – Scout pukes ON. OUR. BED. On our freakin' bed at 7am. I'm a smidge hungover. But I'm up, alright, I'm up. She pukes 3 more times later in the morning. Then she starts eating and seems to be perfectly fine for a few hours.
Saturday evening – Scout's ansty, irritated, and itching a lot. I notice red hives on her belly. Her ears feel hot. She pukes 2 more times (if you're counting, that's 7 times in one day.) We go to the emergency vet because I am that dog mom and I am panicking. 2 ½ hours later, they recommend Benadryl and a bland diet.
Sunday morning – We boil white rice and chicken breasts for Miss Sensitive Sally and hope she keeps it down. We're running out of Lysol wipes, here, man. It's Sunday evening as I write this and we are almost 24 hours puke-free. Thanks to the Benadryl, she's not itching and she's able to get some rest.
Now that all of that craziness is done (please, Scout, let it be done.), I finally feel like we can get back to normal (whatever "normal" is.) All I know is, we've spent wayyyyy too much time in sterile offices with fluorescent lighting for my liking lately.
I sincerely hope that your week was more chill than ours was. And I also hope that you try out this cauliflower rice stir fry recipe this week and that it makes your week a little easier/better/yummier.Print
