Grain Free Egg Fried Rice

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and many are dairy free. I have been under a cloud of ill health for far too long. I suffer from autoimmune illnesses. I have tried the Western Medical route and it only led to a conveyor belt of more and more medications and feeling worse and worse. Finally, I and a good friend went to a seminar given by a Functional doctor. The seminar was just what I needed and became a patient of the Functional doctor. It is a long road to restoring my health. There are still times when I have pain, chronic urticaria (hives) or insomnia. I am feeling better, have lost weight and have regained energy where exhaustion use to be.

I want you to know that I appreciate you taking the time to read my blog. I hope and pray that you have an amazing day and evening where ever you may be.

I use a lot of cassava flour in my recipes as my substitute for flour. Cassava comes from the root plant called Yucca. I recently went to my local organic grocery store and saw that they had Yucca. The root appeared a little waxy. I decided to bring it home and try to make a grain free rice. I made this Egg Fried rice. It was yummy.  I actually like it better than Cauliflower rice.

 

1 yucca root

2 beaten eggs

*1/4 cup carrots

*1/4 cup peas

1 teaspoon pink salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 teaspoons coconut aminos

2 tablespoon avocado oil

Peel the yucca root. Cut up yucca root into pieces. Place the pieces into a food processor and blend until it resembles rice. Remove from the food processor and place into frying pan with a little avocado oil. Fry the yucca root until it is cooked roughly 10 minutes or so. Add beaten eggs, salt, pepper and coconut aminos. Carrots and peas are optional. If using peas and carrots add and cook through. Cook until the eggs, and carrots and peas are cooked.
