Cauliflower “Fried Rice” which replaces rice with cauliflower is my favorite low-carb side dish when I’m craving Chinese take-out!
Cauliflower “Fried Rice”
I posted this Cilantro Lime Cauliflower “Rice” recipe a while back, and it was a huge hit. So I decided to play around with that recipe and make this Asian version to go with the Orange Chicken I posted yesterday, and my husband (who detests cauliflower) was pretty amazed how the meal turned out. The portions are generous and you get a serving or two of vegetables into your diet.

I LOVE fried rice, and often make my own fried rice at home with brown rice like this Edamame Fried Rice and this Spicy Shrimp Fried Rice. But sometimes when I want to cut down on my carbs, I swap out the rice for cauliflower to make this low-carb cauliflower fried rice. A keto, gluten-free and whole30 compliant recipe.
How do you make cauliflower into rice?
It’s simple! You cut the cauliflower into florets, then place a few pieces at a time in the food processor and pulse a few times until it resembles rice. You don’t want to put too much in the food processor as it will over-process it. Cauliflower rice is also now available pre-cut and bagged in the produce section as well as frozen, but my preference is to make it myself as it tastes better than frozen, and often the pre-cut fresh variety spoils fast.
