Shrimp Cauli-Fried Rice

This is my first week of summer vacation and let me just say that I needed this break so badly. The end of the school year brings tons of extra work, high stress and unfortunately less than 8 hours of sleep. On top of that I was experiencing some allergy symptoms- itchy throat and runny nose, which woke me up around 3-4 AM every night. Needless to say, I took the long weekend to rest and now I am finally starting to feel like myself again!

Where I live we are about to enter a heat wave for a week or two so I have been trying to eat light dinners that require minimal amounts of cooking. My house really holds onto heat and we don’t have A/C so I do my best to limit stove and oven use. This recipe is a quick weeknight meal that is ready in less than 15 minutes!

On Sundays I like to rice a head of cauliflower and store it in the fridge so it is ready to add to recipes throughout the week. Feel free to substitute your favorite protein if you aren’t a fan of shrimp. Chicken, scallops, or beef would work as well!

What other quick meals do you guys cook in the summer? Any recipes I should try out?
