How To Make Cauliflower Fried Rice!
I started with the following ingredients:


  • 1 small head of cauliflower, florets separated and pulsed in a food processor until “rice-like”
  • 1 large carrot, cut into small dice
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 4 ounces of sliced mushrooms (I used wild mushrooms)
  • 1-inch knob of ginger, grated with a microplane
  • 1 diced red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro leaves
  • Thinly sliced egg omelet made from 2 eggs, salt, and pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons of coconut aminos (amazing replacement for soy sauce)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-2 olive oil

I then chopped all of my ingredients and put them in different sized dishes.  Having OCD helps in this process… I need to have everything in order and ready before I start actually cooking.

Let’s get cooking!… Combine chopped onions, red peppers, carrots, a dash of salt and pepper in a non-stick pan.  (A wok is definitely on my wishlist after this asian inspired dish!)  Once the onions were softened, I tossed in the wild mushrooms and stir fried everything until the mushrooms were browned.

In a seperate pan, I start cooking the shrimp seasoned with salt and pepper over medium-high heat.  I added a tsp of coconut aminos once the shrimp were almost completely cooked through.

I then added the remaining ingedients: cauliflower, sweet onion, eggs, bacon, cilantro and shrimp to the pan.  I made sure that all of the ingredients we mixed together and tasted it to make sure it was not in need of more S&P.

I plated in a clear bowl so I can see all of the colors in the dish.  You can replace the shrimp with the protein of your choice.

This recipe was so delicious and you don’t even miss the rice… Another fun fact is that this recipe is only 192 calories per serving and 100% paleo.  It is a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables and they won’t even know they are doing it!

Let me know what you think!!   I love reading your comments… =)
