Cauliflower Fried Rice

My other half is not a fan of rice and I love it. There's no better accompaniment to an Asian meal than Fried Rice. So, with cauliflower rice all the rage at the moment, I gave it a try and we both loved it!

Cauliflower Fried Rice
1 small head of cauliflower, cut into large chunks -  about the size of the hole in the lid of the Thermomix
1 onion, sliced
1 egg
1 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper
macadamia oil, for frying
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 carrot, julienned
¼ green capsicum, diced or sliced
handful of snow peas, diced (or use frozen peas)
soy and sweet chilli sauce, to taste

Place half the cauliflower in the Thermomix bowl or food processor. Chop on speed 5 for 2 seconds. Check cauliflower size, stir around with spatula and chop again if necessary. Repeat with remaining cauliflower chunks. Set aside.

Beat egg with sesame oil, salt and pepper.  Heat a small amount of macadamia oil in wok and add beaten egg. Flip over when brown on underside. When cooked, remove from pan and roll up on board. Slice when cool.
Heat more oil in wok and add slice onions and garlic. Stir fry until fragrant and starting to colour. Add carrots and continue to stir fry. Add soy and sweet chilli to taste and a little water. Add cauliflower and stir fry. Add capsicum, then snow peas and omelette. Do not overcook at this stage, cauliflower should have just a little bite to it.
Taste for seasoning and serve immediately. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
