Cauliflower Fried Rice.

If you’re craving a low-carb or vegetarian alternative to traditional fried rice, this is the recipe for you. A little sesame oil and soy sauce and you’ve got the flavor profile down. I always add carrots, onion and green peas but sometimes I also add zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, shrimp, or even bacon.

I keep bags of Cauliflower Rice in my freezer. It’s such a versatile ingredient that cooks very quickly. However you can easily make Cauliflower Rice from a head of fresh cauliflower.

Cauliflower Rice - Step by Step

I start in a large skillet with a little sesame oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the onion and carrots until just tender then pour in the cauliflower rice and spread into an even layer. I let that cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes, then stir and repeat until the cauliflower is nice and hot. Add the frozen peas and soy sauce, then create a well in the middle with a touch more sesame oil.

Scramble the eggs until cooked through then stir them into the rice. If you like nice pieces of egg in your fried rice be sure to cook the egg all the way before stirring into the rice, otherwise it will just coat the rice. Season with salt, pepper and additional soy sauce to taste.

This fried rice pairs perfectly with Asian Salmon Meatballs and makes a great lunch bowl too.
