Grain-free Fried Rice

10 minute paleo 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.

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 :)
