Cauliflower and Kimchi Fried Rice

If you like kimchi, you’ll flip for this spicy, veggie-packed cauliflower fried “rice.”
Serves 4

1 small head cauliflower

2 tablespoons safflower oil

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1 small bunch of dinosaur (Lacinato) kale, ribs removed, leaves sliced into ribbons

2 scallions, thinly sliced

½ cup chopped kimchi

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

3 tablespoons tamari

1. Cut the cauliflower into small florets, then pulse in a food processor until the pieces are the size of couscous (you should have about 2 cups).

2. Heat the safflower and sesame oils in a large nonstick sauté pan over high heat. Add the kale and cauliflower and sauté until the kale is wilted and the cauliflower is beginning to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in the scallions, kimchi, cilantro, and tamari.

3. Taste for seasoning and serve.
