Grain free Fried Rice

grain free fried rice


When I was a kid, fried rice was  a staple in our house.  I’m pretty sure we ate it once a week and it was always a dish my mom threw together for birthdays, holidays and any special occasion.   Every now and then I want fried rice  and  Mr. Bejelly is not the biggest fan when it comes to cauliflower.  He will only eat roasted cauliflower so I needed to branch out and see what else may work for a rice replacement. I ended up using Jicama in this grain free fried rice recipe.

The Jicama adds such a nice sweet taste to the recipe.  You could add cooked egg, chicken, beef and/or pork to the recipe pretty easily.

    I love your recipes because they are unique and simple! I would have never thought of jicama to sub as rice, but it makes total sense! I’ll be making this dish really soon :)

    I love this recipe! I made it a few days ago and have been having it with so many meals. It doesn’t really taste like the fried rice I’m used to since jicama is sweet and it got tender as I cooked it. I still enjoyed it and scrambled an egg in it. Also had it with coconut shrimp.
