Miss Chinese Food? Especially the Fried Rice?  

Rice is not a good choice after bariatric surgery. This recipe has all the stir fry flavors but uses a few cups of grated cauliflower – most people would not know the difference. Its really delicious!

    I made this “fried rice” for family and friends…wish I had made double the recipe as it was eaten so quickly.  Thank you so much for this delicious recipe!

    I used lagonsteins, stir fry mix and riced cauliflower from Trader Joe’s. I added 2 eggs, some fish (oyster) sauce and a small amount of sesame oil and it was delicious.
