For the cauliflower rice:

  • 1 head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 inch piece of ginger minced
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

For the chicken:

  • 1 pound ground chicken

For the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

Instructions

  • Place the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until you have small, rice sized pieces of cauliflower.

Notes

For a non-keto version of this recipe use regular rice instead of the cauliflower rice.  Everything else stays the same!
