Fried Rice

So this is one of the first actual meals I remember learning to cook. Connie Lin's mom told me how to make it when I was 11 or 12 and I still make it about once a month or so, sometimes adding things I never would have thought of putting in it when I was 12. I love it. Ricky loves it. And the kids love it--unless they're just in an eating strike kind of mood. And it's EASY! I'm wondering if you could make it Paleo by using cauliflower instead of rice. Might be worth a shot. The thing about this recipe is you can play with the ingredients to make it suit you better.
1 cup white (or brown) rice, cooked
sesame oil for frying
6-10 eggs
3-6 green onions, sliced
ham sandwich meat, chopped--or turkey, or chicken (optional)
1-2 carrots, shredded
soy sauce
Other stuff to add: broccoli, sugar snap peas, snow peas, asparagus, bell pepper strips
Cook 1 cup of rice in the morning. Let it sit out to dry all day, or at least for several hours.
Put a little sesame oil in wok on medium/low heat. Scramble eggs in the wok.
Add meat, cooking until slightly brown. Stir frequently. (***If you use raw meat, you should cook this before the eggs, so as not to burn the eggs.***)
Add green onions and carrots, cooking until they are to your desired texture. I like mine less raw, more cooked. (Add other veggies here, too)
Add the rice, stirring well to mix everything together. Add soy sauce to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, for another 5-10 minutes.
