Recipe: Cauliflower Fried "Rice"

This is a pretty easy recipe to just "eyeball" and throw together.
I used 3/4 head of cauliflower
1 cup frozen shelled edamame beans
1 cup frozen peas
2 carrots (chopped using food processor)
1/2 of a onion (chopped)
1/2 block of extra firm tofu (drained and cubed)
Coconut Aminos
Toasted Sesame Oil
I added Toasted Sesame oil to the pan to start satueeing the tofu. 
Then I added cauliflower to the food processor in three batches.  I ran it for a sort amount of time until it chopped the cauliflower up into little bits that resembled rice.  I dumped that into a skillet with warm toasted sesame oil and the chopped onions and carrots.  Then did the next batch and added that also to the skillet.  You don't want to fill the processor with too much cauliflower or it wont' chop correctly.  Once the cauliflower started to brown a bit, I added the peas and edamame beans that I had thawed in the microwave.  I kept stirring the mixture.
Once the tofu was browned, I added it to the cauliflower mixture and poured on a few splashes of coconut aminos for a soy sauce flavor. 
I served topped with green onion.  My husband added a little spicy sesame oil to the top of his because he likes things spicy. 
There you have it!  Delicious, nutritious and quick!
