I love fried rice. When I go to Thailand, it is my favorite thing! So I decided to create a healthy version.
I’ve spent quite a bit of time there in recent years, and one of the things I love so much about their culture is how much emphasis they place on whole foods. They don’t believe in using bottled or packaged foods and condiments often, and instead prefer to use real foods from the earth. You can truly taste the difference – the food bursts with flavour and fragrance!
My Thai-Style Cauli Fried Rice dish inspired by my culinary experiences in Thailand – it’s so easy and delicious, I hope you’ll give it a try tonight.
