    1. Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles rice.
    2. Heat sesame oil a large wok or frying pan over medium heat. Season pork chops with five-spice powder; cook pork for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a cutting board to rest.
    3. Whisk soy sauce, brown sugar, fish sauce, chilli flakes and ginger together in a bowl.
    4. Return wok to medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms, onion, carrot and chilli pepper until tender, about 4 minutes. Slice pork chops into cubes.
    5. Push mushroom mixture to one side of wok. Add eggs; cook and stir until scrambled, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir mushroom mixture and eggs together in wok. Stir in cauliflower and soy sauce mixture; add pork cubes. Cook until cauliflower is tender, 3 to 4 minutes more. Garnish with spring onions.

    Perfect! A super healthy alternative to traditional fried rice without all the carbs! This fits nicely into my healthy lifestyle. It's a little time-consuming, but it's so worth it. I cut the cauliflower into florets and was easily able to "rice" it in my Ninja blender pitcher in a matter of seconds. Super easy! Next time I'll definitely use much more red pepper flakes and poblano because this wasn't spicy at all for my tastes. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!  -  27 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I loved this recipe. I used shrimp instead of pork and I added snap peas. It was delicious and very filling. I will definitely make this again.  -  13 Nov 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
