Meatless Monday: Pineapple Fried Cauliflower Rice

Fair warning: this Meatless Monday’s going to heat things up.

This recipe’s a great mix of spicy and sweet. The crunch of the cashews adds a nice variance in texture, and it’s chock-full of veggies!

If you don’t like a lot of heat, cut out the red pepper flakes.


1 tsp. olive oil
½ c. diced onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. curry powder
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
½ tsp. cumin

20 oz can pineapple chunks, drained
1 c. frozen green peas
2/3 c. raw cashews

  2. Stir in spices.
  3. Add the cauliflower and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add pineapple, peas and cashews and cook for another 5 minutes.
