Ginger and Orange Chicken with Vegetables Stir-fry

That may be look like any ordinary helping of white rice under this bed of vegetables, but it’s not. It’s steamed cauliflower rice. While the taste is similar the portions are most definitely not! You can have twice the large heaping helping you’d like because there’s really no size restrictions when it comes to vegetables.

Generally when you see a combination such as this recipe, the word “orange” is in front of the word “ginger.” However, the taste of ginger outweighs orange here and so I orderly corrected it. Ginger can be the star this time.
