Fried Cauliflower Rice

It may look and taste like rice, but this take on fried rice is made with cauliflower! Just grab a pre-made container of cauliflower rice from our deli and you’re on your way to a deliciously simple dinner that not only is it healthy, but doesn’t take 20 or 30 minutes for your rice to cook through, which means this is a perfect meal for busy weeknights.



1 package cauliflower rice (approx 2 cups)

2 tablespoons grapeseed, peanut or safflower oil

½ bag frozen mixed vegetables

¼ cup chopped scallions

1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce

3 eggs, beaten

1 tablespoon oil


In large skillet or wok, heat oil over medium high heat.  Add cauliflower rice, stir fry for 3 minutes.  Add frozen vegetables and scallions, stir fry for 2 minutes.  Add soy sauce, toss to combine.  Turn heat to medium, make a well in center of rice.  Add remaining oil, then beaten eggs.  Scramble until almost set, then fold in rice and vegetables. 


PRO TIP:  To elevate flavor, add seasonings like garlic, ginger, rice vinegar or chili paste.  Finish with a dash of toasted sesame oil.  Vegetables can vary as well – anything you have to use up – peppers, broccoli, bean sprouts, peas, shredded carrots or brussels sprouts.  Want more protein?  Chicken, beef, shrimp, pork or tofu all make great additions!
