Cauliflower Fried Rice

This recipe provides an easy way to lighten up dinner. Cauliflower rice is a low-carb option for rice. Fried rice is a great choice as a side dish for dinner. You can add in some cooked chicken, bacon, or even ground beef or turkey to turn it into a full-on dinner!  This cauliflower rice is my go-to to side dish to make those meals feel complete. Give it a try!



1 med. head cauliflower (about 2 ½ pounds), cut into large florets

(Or buy it in the frozen section – all ready to go!)

Cauliflower Fried Rice

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 clove of garlic, chopped

2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated

1 red bell pepper, cut into ¼-inch pieces

1 yellow bell pepper, cut ¼-inch pieces

2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

1 large bok choy

4 scallions, thinly sliced

1 large egg, beaten (I leave this OUT)

¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped


  • Put half the cauliflower florets into a food processor.
  • Pulse until chopped into very small pieces and pour into a bowl. Repeat with the remaining cauliflower.
  • Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large, high-sided skillet or wide-bottomed pot.
  • Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring until fragrant, for about 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the red and yellow bell peppers, followed by the chopped cauliflower, bok choy, and soy sauce.
  • Cook, stirring often until the vegetables are just tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Add the scallions, and stir until heated through about 1 minute.
  • Make a 5-inch-wide well in the center of the vegetable mix and pour in the beaten egg.
  • Use a silicone spatula to combine the vegetables with the egg.
  • Fold in the cilantro and serve.
