Jackson, Brooks + Cauliflower Fried Rice

and her little dog

Living in the city with a dog, a little one {and another little one on the way} is all sorts of awesome. If you’ve been reading the blog for a while you know that my little dog, Jackson is a big brother to Brooks – and Brooks is obsessed with Jackson.  The dog is still figuring out the tiny human who just started walking around – but since we have another little one coming soon so I know Jackson and Brooks will bond big time come September.


In the last Jackson + Brooks update, my little guy was only 5 or 6 months old. Still figuring out how to get around on his own. Now Brooks has not only mastered walking but the thing he says all day, every day is Jacks {what he calls Jackson} He thinks Jackson is just the best thing ever – he loves to follow the dog around throughout the day and mealtime {and snack time} is pretty much both of their favorite times together to bond and share some eats!


We recently switched Jackson’s eats to try out out the new Rachael Ray Nutrish Zero Grain™ Salmon & Sweet Potato Recipe dog food + as a part of this partnership opportunity we were challenged to come up with a human recipe that corresponds with your pet’s dinner using the suggested recipes at ChefTails.comfried rice

I decided to try out Iowa Girl Eats Cauliflower Fried Rice and it was tasty, delicious, quick to make and it was a fun way to get Brooks to eat some extra veggies! 

How To:

  1. Combine 1 tsp. sesame oil with 2 eggs in a bowl then whisk to combine and set aside.
  2. Chop 1 small head of cauliflower into big chunks then send through a food processor {I blended mine up & that worked too!} – You need about 4 cups.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp. sesame oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add cauliflower, 2 chopped green onions, and 1/2 cup frozen mixed vegetables then stir fry until cauliflower about 3-4 minutes. Add 2 cloves minced garlic, season with S&P, and then continue to stir fry until garlic is fragrant.
  4. Create an opening in the center of the wok then add the egg mixture and scramble. Toss mixture to combine then drizzle in 3 tbsp. soy sauce and mix again. Serve hot!
