Cauliflower Rice with Shrimp

Cauliflower Rice with Shrimp

Riced cauliflower has a similar taste and texture as traditional rice. You can find it in the produce or frozen-food aisle of most grocery stores. Or make your own at home by pulsing small batches of cauliflower florets in a food processor (only nine to ten pulses per batch).

3 teaspoons olive oil
8 ounces shrimp, shelled and deveined
2 eggs, beaten
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup frozen peas and carrots

1 tablespoon sesame oil
¼ cup chopped peanuts or cashews
3 scallions, chopped
