cauliflower fried rice

cauliflower fried rice
I got a nice cauliflower at Annie's favorite store and used half of it to make this fried rice. I ate a little of it for breakfast and took the rest to work, where I shared it with Little Debbie.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

1T peanut oil
1/2 a small cauliflower, thinly sliced right cross the whole thing so as to make little floret cross-sections
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 oz firm tofu, dried off and cut into little (<1cm) cubes
salt and pepper
2 cups leftover brown rice
1T sesame seeds
1 biggish tomato, coarsely chopped
2 green onions, thinly sliced
a handful of coriander, roughly chopped

Heat the oil in a big frying pan on medium-high heat, then add the cauliflower and onion. When it's getting limp, add the tofu, salt, and pepper and cook--stirring frequently--till the tofu gets a nice, brown crust. Add the sesame seeds and rice and stir around till the rice is coated with oil. Lay the tomato and green onion on top, and let the rice develop a little crust before stirring it. Let it get a crust a couple of more times, then stir in the coriander and serve.
