Mary's BAMMMMM Fried Rice!!!

I haven't shared with you all a recipe in a superrrrr looooooooong time buuuut I believe that I simply can NOT shut up about my latest recipe creation...just CAN NOT!!!! Soooooo although I do not personally follow the keto eating plan, this recipe IS low carb and keto friendly. I'm a lean meat, high protein, high veggies and minimum fruit eating plan, its what works for me so I've come up with some really BOMB recipes!!!
The way I feel about cooking is this, anyone can make fattening food taste good, weeeeelllllll I told my sis that and she said, UH NOOOO, that's not quite true, buuuuuut any good cook can make unhealthy food taste good, buuuuuuuut I Mary Frances Ginty do not strive to be good, I strive to be EXCELLENT!!!
IF you think cauliflower rice is NASTY one of two things: 1. You ate it by a person that doesn't know how to cook it! 2. YOU don't know how to cook it!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!! So the key is STEAM it and then saute it as well!!!
Sooooooo with out further ado...
2 teaspoons of freshly grated ginger
2-4 cloves garlic diced
1/2 cup of diced ham
1/2 cup cooked chicken
1/4 cup chopped green onions/chives
1/4 diced onion
1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1 diced jalapeno
1.5 tablespoons oil (Your favorite)
2 teaspoons sesame oil (Adds amazing flavor but too much is TOO MUCH!;)
1-2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 bag frozen rice cauliflower medley
2-3 eggs
Steam rice in microwave
Saute garlic and ginger in oils, about a minute or 2 till they start to brown slightly, then add the steamed cauliflower rice, cook together a minute, then add everything else. Once broccoli is starting to soften, add the soy sauce, add in raw eggs at the end till they are cooked. I like to get everything throughly cooked, then let the bottom brown, flip, let that part brown then...
This stuff is SOOOOOO good!!! I'm gonna buy stuff tomorrow to make another batch up!!!I'm NOT joking, don't knock the cauliflower until you've given it a try....EVEN MY SISTER LIKED IT... annnnnd that says A LOT!!! Also, one of my sister in laws, who is doing keto, was really craving fried rice, she said her and her husband bought a frozen cauliflower fried rice from Sprouts and much to her disappointment, it was DISAPPOINTING!!! Buuuuuut she LOOOOOOVED MINE!!! What does Sprouts have on an ITALIAN GIRL??? Nothing, besides a BUSINESS...ahahahahaaaa!!!
*I just wanna say that it's hard for me to actually give directions for cooking cuz I just kinda do it...buuuuuut hopefully get the jist!!!
*Also, you can add in lots of other veggies if you want, these are just the ones I like. Carrots and peas are always good, some people like mushrooms and water chestnuts. You can also do more on the meat or all chicken or all ham or pork...WHATEVERRRR! And if you don't like spice you may wanna leave out the jalapeno or just half...I looooooove the added kick tho!!! Yuuuuummmm!!! Oooooh also, you can make this without the cauliflower rice by using 2 cups of your favorite already cooked rice instead, or even quinona instead, which is a healthier grain that is also very high in protein!

*Also, I don't ACTUALLY measure it's about that much oil, could be a little less, I just kinda eyeball JUST enough!!! LOL Also, I season to taste as I cook with salt, pepper and Montreal Steak seasoning. I'm a HUGE spice person! No blah food in my kitchen!!! :)
