CAULIFLOWER “FRIED RICE”

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 scrambled eggs (sub tofu for a vegan option)
  • 1 large egg
  • dash of ume plum vinegar (or a pinch of salt)
  • 1/2 small onion, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup peas (can be frozen)
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 1/2 cup carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Chop cauliflower using Tupperware’s PowerChef System (or by just pulsing some rough cut pieces in a food processor); the end product should resemble smallish grains of rice.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a large skillet over medium low heat until it liquifies. Add the onions and garlic and stir fry until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots, celery and cauliflower to the pan; stir fry quickly to cook the cauliflower to a soft (but not mushy) texture.  Mix in Peas.
  3. Make a well in the middle, turn the heat down, and add the eggs. Stir gently and continuously until the eggs are fully cooked. Stir to combine all with soy sauce and enjoy.

Enjoy adding in your favorite protein and veg. Possible add-ins: baby corn, broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, water chestnuts, chicken, tofu, and shrimp!

FRESH IDEA: Kids Activities for Summer

Summer Fun for Kids with the Fresh Expert

It’s Summer!!  With the kids home from school I have to tell you –  they may get restless  –  I know mine do!  So here are some simple inexpensive ideas you can do together to create memories and even play with a little science.

Play Dough
1 cup water
4 cups flour
2-4 TBSP Vegetable Oil
1 1/2 cups salt
food coloring
glitter (optional)

Pour Water into large mixing bowl.  Then add food coloring and then add the dry ingredients (flour and salt).  Next add 2-4 TBSP of oil . .  then knead until a soft dough if formed.  Store in Tupperware so it lasts weeks!

 

Slime

▪A big bowl
▪cornflour (also known as cornstarch!)
▪water
▪food colouring (optional )

What to do
▪Fill a cup with cornflour and add to the bowl
▪Add water very slowly mixing with your hands all the time, until you get a sticky, slimy goo.
▪If you want to make it coloured add some food colouring, be careful this can stain skin and clothes.

 

Make your own Volcano Lamp/ or Ocean.

  • Fill the bottle or jar  a quarter full with water.
  • Top up to the (near) top with the vegetable oil
  • The oil and water should separate into two layers, water at the bottom and oil sitting on top. Add about 6-8 drops of food colouring once they have separated.
  • To make an ocean, add glitter, sparkles, etc.
  • To make a Volcano, pop in half an alka seltzer tablet and watch the bubbles form.   Then, add more alka seltzer bit by bit to keep the bubbles rising and falling.
