Add the sesame oil and saute the onions and the carrots until the carrots soften, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and continue stirring for about one minute. Add the cauliflower rice and stir constantly for 5-6 minutes. Add the peas and stir for another minute or two. Add the chicken back to the wok and mix completely. Push the mixture to the back of the wok and add the beaten eggs. Cook the eggs and mix with the rice. Add the soy sauce and stir for another minute or two. Remove from the wok and serve hot! Enjoy!
Howdy, Pards! Been wanting to grill a Cauliflower Steak for awhile now. So, why not tonight? Yyyyyeees, Sir, time to get my grill on. In poking around the world wide web, I found a Cauliflower Steak recipe that uses Pesto. Weeeell, I sure ain't wanting to use that jarred stuff that is made in New York City though. 'Ol Marshall Lucky can sure fix up some home made mean mean green Pesto. Let's begin with the ingredients for the Pesto. I used 3 cups organic Basil, 1 cup organic Baby Spinach, 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese, a few garlic cloves, toasted pine nuts, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). Put all of the dry ingredients in a food processor and pulsed til the consistency of a fine chop. Scraped the sides of the bowl, turned the processor on, and then drizzled EVOO into the bowl until it blended into a wet paste of herbal goodness. Added fresh squeezed lemon juice to add a zingy zip, salt to taste, and a final whirl of the processor. Lemon is not a traditional ingredient for Pesto; but what the hay, I think lemon and basil really pair well. Give it a try if ya ain't done it. Cleaned my Cauliflower by taking off the lower leaves and trimmed down the stalk to remove the hard tough end of the stalk. However, it's important to leave enough of the stalk as this is what keeps the florets together so you can carve out them beautiful steaks. Cut the Cauliflower head in half and then sliced off 1.5 inches of each half to get a thick steak. Watch out! I'm a veggie butcher, now. I was able to get a smaller 1 inch steak off one of the halves to give me 3 steaks. I brushed both sides of each steak with the fresh home made mean mean green Pesto while the grill came up to my target temp of 400 degrees F. For this cook, I used indirect heat by placing my diffuser stone in the fire bowl. To round my supper off, I added some yellow squash brushed with EVOO and black pepper, and a couple of pineapple rings. Yyyyyees, Sir! 'Ol Marshall Lucky is a happy boy tonight.
I dedicate tonight's cook to @Improv and @bjunge (Cauliflower and Meatloaf, respectively.) H had to visit a friend in the hospital tonight and needed comfort food and reduced stress. So while he was gone I threw together a meatloaf using my usual recipe (burger, eggs, Worcestershire, breadcrumbs, toasted onion) and put a whole cauliflower on to grill. It also gave me a chance to use my cool new meatloaf pan with the holes to let the grease drip out. After about 40 mins (at a hair under 400°) I tested the cauli (not quite done but looking good): and poured some Stubbs Sweet Heat on the meatloaf and tossed on some baby zucchini (not pictured) 15 mins later, everything came off the grill. I quickly pulsed the cauliflower in the food processor with about 1/4 packet of cream cheese and a couple of chunks of cheddar. Thanks to both of you above for a GREAT meal. It was well received on a crazy Monday night.
