Cauli-Fried Rice

Success!! If you are a regular follower of this blog you know how much I love rice…and that of all things non-paleo, it’s the one thing I miss most. This recipe is amazing. It’s very simple and tastes just like fried rice. In addition, it gave me an opportunity to try a new way to make cauliflower rice. If you haven’t, definitely try this method. The grating takes about as long as the food processor and it created a lighter, less watery version of the rice which made cooking faster. Personally, it’ll be how I make it in the future

  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 bunch asparagus, diced
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup kielbasa sausage
  • 1 lb chicken, diced
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup scallions
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • Red pepper flakes

In a mason jar mix the water, lime, fish sauce, honey, and vinegar.

Grate the cauliflower using a hand grater. This dish is easiest if you have two woks or large drying pans.

Add 1 tbsp of oil to first pan over medium heat. Fry the onions until soft and translucent. While the onions are cooking, heat the other pan over medium high heat and add 1 tbsp of oil. Add the cauliflower and cook, allowing it to brown evenly. Make a well in the center of the cauliflower. Add the beaten egg and stir until it begins to thicken but is still wet. Toss the egg through the rice until no longer wet. The rice will get fluffier and you should not have large chunks of egg.

Add garlic, carrots, asparagus, sausage, and chicken to the onions, cooking until the carrots begin to soften and the meat is cooked. Continue to fry and stir so everything cooks evenly.

When both pans are done, combine them into one pan and toss until it is evenly mixed. Serve with scallions as a garnish.

You can either stir in the sauce or allow each person to add as much as they like. Season with salt and pepper. It tastes delicious without the sauce.

  1. I just tried riced cauliflower for the first time and fell in love with it. I love the concept of using cauliflower in place of rice since I love rice too!
