Cauliflower Fried Rice For One


olive oil
clove of garlic
an egg
cold cooked rice
parsley or cilantro
green onion

Heat a glug of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet. Mince a clove of garlic into the hot oil, swirl a bit, then add a big handful of small cauliflower florets. Let them get crispy. Meanwhile, fry an egg in another small skillet--I like mine over-easy. When the cauliflower is browned in spots and getting a little soft, add a big handful of cold, cooked rice; 1/4 c. of chopped parsley or cilantro; and one sliced green onion; salt and pepper; and something spicy--aleppo pepper or ancho chile powder or the like. Pour a bit more olive oil and let the whole thing get hot and crispy. Dump it into a bowl, slide the fried egg in, and top with a shower of grated sharp white cheddar.
