How to Make Cauliflower Fried Rice

Skeptical about trying cauliflower fried rice? I certainly was. I’ve tried spaghetti squash, which supposedly tastes just like real spaghetti, but I was left feeling rather confused – really, spaghetti? Well, I assumed cauliflower rice would follow in the same vain, but I am so happy to report that I was wrong – it’s amazing! The texture is shockingly similar to couscous or even short grain rice and truthfully, it’s easier for me than cooking actual rice!

How to Make Cauliflower Fried Rice – Ingredient List

For the rice:
1 head of cauliflower
1/2 cup frozen peas

For the dressing:
1 clove garlic {minced}
1 tsp peeled/chopped fresh ginger
1 tsp chopped green onion
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

How to Make Cauliflower Fried Rice

The first step to making cauliflower fried rice is to cut the head of cauliflower, first into quarters then into small florets. I use a Vitamix blender to finely chop the cauliflower, so I cut the florets pretty small {smaller than in the photo above}. I pulse about 1/2 cup of cauliflower florets at a time to avoid clogging the blender since there is no liquid added; it’s normally done in about 4 batches. Also, I’ve found a fork to be the best tool for removing stubborn cauliflower from around the blade.

Once the cauliflower is completely pulsed, with a rice-like consistency, it’s time to make the dressing. After cleaning out the blender, I mince both the garlic and ginger, chop the green onion {on a cutting board} and throw everything except the olive oil back in. Next, blend all the ingredients while streaming in the olive oil.

Heat the “rice” in a deep sauté pan, on medium-high heat. Pour the dressing over the rice, add the frozen peas and stir occasionally until the cauliflower is light golden brown, approximately 10-12 minutes.
