How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together tamari, vinegar, and honey in a little bowl.

Step 2

Warm 1 tablespoon avocado oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Then add mushrooms, sprinkle lightly with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they release their water and become tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Now add 1 tablespoon avocado oil and carrots, celery, and bell pepper; sauté until vegetables are tender, about 2 – 3 minutes.

Step 3

Stir in garlic, ginger, and scallions; sauté 30 – 40 seconds. Add bock Choy and cook, stirring often, until bock Choy wilts, 1 to 2 minutes. Add remaining 1 tablespoon avocado oil and cauliflower rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until rice begins to get tender, about 1 minute. Stir tamari mixture into skillet cook, stirring occasionally and scraping up browned bits from bottom of skillet, until liquid cooks off and rice is tender, about 2 – 3 minutes.

Step 4

Remove from heat and drizzle sesame oil on top. Then add a few shakes of sriracha, if desired, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Divide fried rice among 4 plates or bowls and serve your favorite recipe.
