Cauliflower Fried Rice

This doesn't even feel like a recipe since we used leftovers, one pan, and a bag of pre-chopped veggies but it was so delicious we're not even sorry.

Cauliflower rice gets a bad rap because...well...it's cauliflower. But hear us out.

It's way faster than regular rice.
It's a vegetable.
It tastes a lot like rice.
It tastes even more like rice if you put a bunch of other stuff in it.

So cauliflower fried rice (fried cauliflower rice?) is perfect for us because we really should eat more vegetables and we can throw whatever meat we have in it and then we can add eggs, and adding eggs is pretty much the best.

We also recently discovered bags of cauliflower stir fry, already chopped up, with cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots so that enabled our laziness even more!
