I don't know about you, but I love rice. Some days I use my carbs on my favorite coffee drink or maybe a sandwhich at lunch. By dinner I have no carbs left to use but I want a stir fry! That doesn't mean I can't have it. That just means that I have to be creative. This recipe tricks your mind and your taste buds into thinking you are eating rice.
