1 pound(s) ham, diced into small cubes

2 medium garlic clove(s), peeled and sliced

4 teaspoon(s) ginger, fresh, peeled and grated, about 1 inch

1 small bell pepper(s), diced

6 medium mushroom(s), white button, sliced

1 medium jalapeno pepper(s), diced (optional)

1/2 cup(s) cilantro, fresh, chopped (about 1/2 bunch)

Place cauliflower florets into a food processor fitted with a chopping blade. Pulse until a rice-like consistency has formed. A cheese grater also works well for this task.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1/2 of coconut oil. Add ham cubes and cook, stirring frequently, until browned lightly on all sides (about 7 minutes). Set aside.

In the same pan, heat the remaining coconut oil over medium-high heat and add garlic, ginger, jalapeno, mushrooms, onions and bell pepper. Saute, stirring frequently for about 3 minutes until lightly browned.

Add riced cauliflower to the pan and cook for another 7 minutes, stirring frequently.

In a small bowl, whisk together coconut aminos, vinegar, and fish sauce.

Turn heat to high and add liquid mixture and ham to cauliflower sauté. Stir frequently for about one minute until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat.

Garnish with cila

Intro, fresh ground pepper, toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil to taste.
