Total Time: 40 Minutes, Servings: 4 Servings

Ingredients :
    For the cauliflower rice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • For the sauce:
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey (or agave nectar)
  • 3 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • zest from 1 large orange
  • For the stir-fry:
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into large bite-sized pieces
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper
  • ½ white onion, cut into chunks
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips
  • 8 ounces fresh green beans, trimmed and cut into 2 inch pieces
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • To garnish:
  • Green onion, for garnish
  • Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish



Instructions :
  • First make your cauliflower rice. Remove all greens from cauliflower and break into florets. You can either use a box grater, or a food processor to process the cauliflower into rice. If using a food processor (the easier method), simply add half of cauliflower florets to bowl of the food processor with a blade attachment. Pulse until cauliflower resembles rice. Add in remaining florets and process again until cauliflower becomes rice-like. Transfer to a large, clean dish towel and squeeze all the moisture out of the cauliflower. Set aside in a large bowl until ready to cook.
  • Next make the sauce: Add the orange juice, honey, soy sauce, ginger, cornstarch/arrowroot starch, red pepper flakes and orange zest to a large bowl; whisk until the cornstarch is dissolved. Set aside for later.
  • Next preheat a large skillet or pan over medium-high heat and add in 1 tablespoon of the toasted sesame oil. Add in chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 5-6 minutes or until fully cooked and no longer pink. Once chicken is cooked, transfer to a bowl and set aside. Keep the heat in the pan.
  • Add the other 1/2 tablespoon of sesame oil to the pan (over medium-heat); add in onion and saute until onions become slightly translucent, about 2 minutes.
  • Next add in the garlic, bell pepper, green beans and cashews and saute for 4-6 minutes. You want the green beans to still have a little bit of crunch!
  • While your veggies are cooking, make your cauliflower rice. Add ½ tablespoon coconut oil to a separate large skillet and place over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add in cauliflower rice and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour the orange sauce into the pan. Stir frequently as the sauce will start to thicken up.
  • Add in chicken and stir again. Reduce heat to medium low and let the sauce simmer and thicken some more, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve immediately over your cauliflower rice. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, green onion and cilantro if desired. Serves 4.
