Are you on a ketogenic diet? Here’s a quick and easy Asian-inspired meal-prep that’s fit for your particular diet! Check out this delicious lamb fried rice recipe!    

    

Lamb is meat from domestic sheep. In the first year of a sheep, it’s called a lamb as well as its meat. In its second year, it’s a hogget. And older sheep’s meat is mutton.    

    

Among the three types of sheep meat, lamb is the most expensive one. It’s red meat that primarily consists of high-quality protein supplying all the nine essential amino acids needed by your body for growth and maintenance.    

    

The lamb meat used in this fried rice dish is also a rich source of vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B12, selenium, zinc, niacin, phosphorus, and iron which is vital for different bodily functions.    

    

This dish is easy to make. You can even do this using your rice cooker. It only takes more or less 30 minutes to make this lamb fried rice. First, chop cauliflower florets and put them in the processor until they become rice-like in texture. Squeeze out as much as possible of the excess water from the cauliflower and set aside.    

    

On a nonstick pan, simmer garlic on olive oil for a few minutes. Add in the ground lamb and green onions. Stir-fry until the lamb is nearly cooked. Put in the seasonings except for tamari and mix and cook it for a couple of minutes.    

    

Toss in the cauliflower rice then mix the eggs well after a few minutes. Finally, add frozen peas and carrots. Add tamari sauce according to your taste. You may use soy sauce instead of tamari sauce if it’s not available.

Keto Lamb Fried “Cauliflower” Rice Meal Prep

Ingredients

Ingredients for 3 servings:

  • 12oz ground lamb
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 ½ cups cauliflower rice (medium head of cauliflower)
  • 1 ½ cup frozen peas & carrot medley (or REMOVE if your carbohydrate intake is too high for the ketogenic diet)
  • 1/3 cup fresh green onion
  • Seasonings:
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 1 ½ tablespoon Chinese 5 spice blend
    • 3 tablespoons low sodium Tamari
    • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
    • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger (or ginger paste)*
  • spray extra virgin olive oil
  • Garnish:
    • fresh chopped cilantro
    • fresh chopped green onion
Steps

Steps:

  1. Chop florets from head of cauliflower and place them in a food processor. Pulse blend until the cauliflower is a rice like substance.   Empty the contents onto a heavy-duty paper towel, thin cloth or cheese cloth.  Fold in the sides of the cloth and squeeze out as much water as possible from the cauliflower into a bowl.  When finished, place the cauliflower rice in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat and spray with olive oil. Once the skillet is hot, add garlic and simmer for about a minute or two, careful not to let the garlic burn or brown.
  3. Toss in the ground lamb and chop and cook with a wooden spatula. Add green onions and cook until the lamb is nearly finished (about 2 minutes with few visible pink pieces).
  4. Add all the seasonings to the skillet EXCEPT the tamari. Mix it up and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Increase heat to medium-high and then toss in the cauliflower rice. Mix and cook for about 2 minutes, then toss in eggs.  Chop and stir to ensure the eggs are fully cooked. This should take about 2 minutes.  TIP:  move cauliflower and lamb mixture to one side of the skillet and add the eggs to the empty side of the skillet.  Chop up and cook the eggs on that side of the skillet and then mix it all together.
  6. Finally, add in frozen peas and carrots and allow the steam from the food to soften the peas and carrots. Mix it together then add Tamari sauce (and add less or more to taste).
  7. Mix together and garnish.
  8. Enjoy!
