Tattooed Chef Cauliflower Rice Stir Fry Nutrition and Ingredients
Let’s take a closer look at what you get with this stir fry mix.
You get four 12 ounce packages of stir fry with each three pound bag of stir fry mix. One cup (105 g) is considered a single serving and there are about 13 servings per bag.
The nutritional facts for a single serving are:
- Calories: 60
- Fat: 3g (4% DV)
- Cholesterol: 00mg (0% DV)
- Sodium: 290mg (13% DV)
- Carbohydrates: 8g (3% DV)
- Protein: 3g
Of the 8 grams of carbohydrates 2 of them are dietary fiber which leaves you with 6 net grams of carbs per cup.
I prepare an entire 12 ounce bag when I make this and that has 3.24 servings. If you cook and eat a 12 ounce package then you get 194 calories and 19 net grams of carbs.
The stir fry has the following ingredients:
- Riced cauliflower
- Stir Fry Sauce
- Tamari Sauce
- Sesame oil
- Ginger powder
- White pepper
- Red bell pepper
The product is labeled as Gluten Free, Vegan and Organic.
How to Cook the Tattooed Chef Cauliflower Rice Stir Fry
Please, do NOT follow the cooking instructions that are printed on the package.
The package instructs you to heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a wok, add the contents of a 12 ounce bag of stir fry mix and cook for 6-7 minutes until heated through.
This is simply insane.
Using two tablespoons of olive oil will:
- Increase the calorie count from 200 to 440.
- Completely overwhelm the flavor of the sesame ginger dressing.
I cook the stir fry by:
- Lightly spray a wok with Pam
- Add the contents of a 12 ounce bag of stir fry
- Cook over medium heat stirring/tossing often for 5 minutes
- Serve when heated through topped with a protein of choice
How Does The Cauliflower Rice Stir Fry Taste?
I topped the 12 ounces of stir fry with a 90 calorie Trader Joe’s Shrimp Burger patty (1 gram carbs) and had a MASSIVE lunch. This was a serious feast that had less than 300 calories and only 21 grams of carbs.
The cauliflower stir fry tastes great!
I like cauliflower but a lot of times when I am eating a cauliflower rice based meal I get overwhelmed and exhausted by the cauliflower flavor. This was not the case with this stir fry as the sesame ginger seasoning masked much of the cauliflower flavor.
The peas and corn provide some nice textural contrast. The red bell pepper and peas combined to provide two types of sweetness that made the dish interesting.
It was a struggle for me to finish the meal simply because it was so much food!
Other than the insane cooking instructions, there is absolutely nothing that I didn’t like about this product.
