There are days (many of them) that after I go to the grocery, I have purchased way too many vegetables. As I am an avid carnivore I end up kind of eating vegetables as an afterthought and adjunct to my meat. I do love Ginger Curry Sweetened Cauliflower Rice and oops, I bought too large a cauliflower and I had a little less than 2 cups left over. Riced cauliflower will last quite awhile in the fridge but there comes a time to either use it or lose it and trust me, I am not into losing food (of any kind). Hence this recipe for Cajun Cauliflower Rice Hash. When training, and working in any kitchen, the one thing that is pounded into you everyday is NEVER EVER WASTE FOOD. At the time something goes into the garbage, it has become 100% food cost and it is NOT cool. Not for the owner of the restaurant and if you’re the owner…NOT cool for you.
Cooking, for me, is second nature. I don’t much think about it and probably miss many opportunities to make a recipe post because of it. I just throw this and that together and come up with something. No recipe, no nothing. After I made this, I decided to take a couple of pictures and do this post. It is so simple it’s ridiculous but if you don’t know to do it, you’ll never taste it and… Since I ended up prepping so much food today and knowing I wouldn’t be eating it for several more days I wanted an easy dinner with maybe some eggs and sausage and this is just what I came up with. So when you need an easy fix..try this. I happened to top it mine with eggs but it is also an easy side dish to almost anything.

- Cheddar cheese between the hash & eggs is good and I would have done it...but I forgot.
