  • 2 tbsp Hosin sauce

  1. Prepare vegetables by washing and chopping, slicing, or mincing.
  2. In a large sauce pan, bring 1-inch of water to boil and then add chopped cauliflower. Bring back to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 4-5 minutes, until par-boiled. Prepare an ice bath in a large boil. Strain water and place cauliflower in an ice bath. Let cauliflower sit in ice bath for 5 minutes and then strain. Set cauliflower aside.
  3. Meanwhile, cook ground pork in a skillet over medium heat. Add about 1/3 of the minced garlic to the pork while it's cooking. Add salt and pepper. Once ground pork has browned, about 8 minutes, remove from heat. Set pork aside.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet or wok. Add 1/3 of the mince garlic and carrots. Cook for 2 minutes and then add the red bell pepper. Cook bell pepper for 2 minutes and then add mushrooms. Finally add the onion, broccoli, and cabbage and cook for another 6 minutes. Set vegetables aside.
  5. While the vegetables are cooking, rice the cauliflower in a food processor. Pulse to make cauliflower a bread-crumb like consistency. You may need to do this in batches. See picture.
  6. Using cheese cloth or a fine strainer squeeze excess water from riced cauliflower. Make sure not to squeeze too hard, turning the rice into mash
  7. To bring the dish together, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in wok over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower rice when hot. Mix is hosin, soy sauce, garlic chili sauce, fish sauce, and siracha. Cook cauliflower rice about 10 minutes, until lightly brown and slightly crispy.
  8. Then mix back in the vegetables and ground pork with the cauliflower rice. Cook for a 2-3 minutes until hot.
  9. To serve, top with chives.
