Cauliflower Fried Rice
Make a delicious fried ‘rice’ but this time use cauliflower instead. This Cauliflower Fried Rice will delight your taste-buds and your diet! I’m sharing this in partnership with The Produce Gathering, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
One of our favorite foods to eat in our household is fried rice; however, I’ve been trying to really watch my diet, so I decided to try this Cauliflower Fried Rice instead. I was surprised to find how similar it taste and just how delicious it really is. This can be made easily with a head of cauliflower and a food processor.
I cleaned off the cauliflower that I picked up at The Produce Gathering, then I placed it in my food processor. A few seconds later, I had a great rice like consistency and it was perfect for my ‘fried rice’. I decided to adapt my favorite Chicken Fried Rice and then just substitute the rice for cauliflower to make this tasty meal. The real trick of course is trying to trick the family to see if they can tell the difference. They definitely didn’t realize it was cauliflower. My husband actually will tell you how much he hates cauliflower…only he ate all of this. Of course, you can tell a difference, the texture will be different than rice, so keep that in mind. It’s just hard to figure out what it is that is used in place of the rice.
Cauliflower Fried Rice
- 2 Cups Finely Chopped Cauliflower
- 1/2 Cup Shredded Chicken, Cooked
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1/4 Cup Red Onion, Diced
- 1 Celery Stalk, Diced
- 2 Carrots, Diced
- 1/2 Cup Peas, Cooked
- 2-4 Tbsp Lite Soy Sauce (or Gluten Free Soy Sauce)
- Place the cleaned and trimmed cauliflower into the food processor and blend until a fine rice like consistency.
- Place the cauliflower in a paper towel lined bowl and use another paper towel to soak up any excess water from the cauliflower.
- Begin by placing the cooked chicken in the oil using a large skillet. Add in the onion, celery, carrots, peas, and let this simmer for 10 minutes or until the onions are slightly browned.
- Next add in the cauliflower and 2 Tbsp soy sauce. Continue cooking for another 10 minutes.
- At this point if you want it darker in color add in the remaining soy sauce.
Note: I like to start with 2 Tbsp Soy Sauce, then go up from there as I serve the dish.
