Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare and Carris Health care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to helps us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Cauliflower Chicken Fried Rice

Published in Recipes / Food


    • 1 head cauliflower (5- to 6-inch diameter)
    • 1 lb. ground chicken
    • 2 large eggs
    • 3 cloves garlic
    • 1 teaspoon ginger root (grated)
    • 7 teaspoons sesame oil
    • 1 cup peas and carrots (frozen)
    • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce


    1. To Make Cauliflower Rice: Cut the cauliflower into chunks. Working in batches, pulse the cauliflower in a food processor until coarse in texture, like rice. This recipe uses about 5 cups of cauliflower rice. If you have any leftover, save it for another use. Place cauliflower in a glass bowl with 1/4 cup water and microwave for 5 minutes, stir and microwave for another 5 minutes. Your riced cauliflower is now ready to use.
    2. Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Add beaten eggs and quickly scramble. Transfer eggs to a plate and set aside. Heat 2 teaspoon sesame oil, add chicken, garlic, ginger, peas and carrots. Stir-fry until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. As the vegetables and chicken mixture is cooking, whisk the soy sauce and sesame oil together in a small bowl. Add the cauliflower and stir the sauce, chicken, and cauliflower mixture. Cook an additional minute or two. Stir the cooked eggs back into the mixture. Serve with hot sauce and additional soy sauce if desired.
