Cauliflower Fried Rice

Wow!! This was so good. It was just as good (almost) as fried rice with rice!! The benefit of this is that we didn’t feel guilty about taking seconds and thirds!! I used a recipe from as the base for this cauliflower rice. I made some changes which I will put here but I am including the link to the original recipe for you to look at and try.

Here is the link

Cauliflower Fried Rice


1 head of cauliflower

2 tbsp oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn)

2 eggs, beaten

2 tbsp soya sauce

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp Sweet Thai Chili Sauce or any hot sauce, depending on your taste

2 green onions, diced

salt & pepper to taste



1.Clean and cut the cauliflower into chunks. Put into a food processor and using the pulse setting, chop the cauliflower until it resembles rice. You can do this by hand if you would prefer

2. In a large saucepan, heat the 2 tbsp of oil

3. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic and cook until the onion is soft (mine browned a bit which is fine)

4. Add the cauliflower and cook until tender but not too soft. Stir often to ensure even cooking and the distribution of the onion and garlic throughout the cauliflower

5. Add the mixed vegetables , stirring them together with the cauliflower and cooking until the vegetables are completely defrosted and warm. Stir often to avoid sticking to the bottom of the saucepan

6.Make a space in the middle of the pan by pushing the cauliflower and vegetables aside. Put the beaten eggs in and stir them into the vegetables to cook the egg and coat all of the cauliflower

7. Add the soya sauce, sesame oil, sweet Thai chilli sauce & diced green onions. Mix well to combine. Season to taste with salt & pepper

*** I served this with some homemade asian flavoured meatballs.
