Where does the egg roll fit in this fried cauliflower rice recipe?
Did you know that Van’s Kitchen egg rolls already contain vegetables, protein, and authentic spices found in most Asian dishes? We’re talking about carrots, onions, celery, cabbage, and your choice of 100% white meat chicken or lean cuts of premium pork or delicious bites of shrimp. Therefore, making an Asian recipe using Van’s Kitchen egg rolls makes perfect sense. It means less grocery shopping, less spending, less meal prep, and more time around the table.
At Van’s Kitchen, we believe in keeping food simple. Our fried cauliflower rice recipe requires only 5 ingredients: Van’s Kitchen egg rolls, cauliflower rice, eggs (or tofu), sesame oil, and soy sauce. It doesn’t get much easier. We also believe in serving up something super healthy at dinnertime. That’s why our egg rolls are low in fat and calories with no added MSG.
To make fried cauliflower rice, start by slicing each egg rolls down the middle and emptying it’s filling into a bowl. Next, heat sesame oil in a wok or large skillet. Add in the cauliflower rice and stir fry for a few minutes. The rice is done when it’s soft but not mushy.
Now, make a hole in the middle of the cauliflower rice with a spoon. Pour in two beaten eggs (or tofu) and stir until the eggs are cooked.
Then, pour in the egg roll rolling and stir generously until well combined with the rice. Cook until heated through. It’s starting to look pretty tasty, don’t you think?
Lastly, stir in the soy sauce. We recommend adding the sauce in increments until you achieve the flavor you desire. It is always easier to add more flavor than to take it away! Top with hoisin sauce and sesame seeds if desired. You could also add in more eggs, peas, and some of your favorite vegetables!
