Cauliflower Fried "Rice"

 I started following a paleo diet about a month ago - not necessarily to lose weight, but simply to live a healthier lifestyle. I love the results: I feeling great, have more energy, and slimming down a few pounds is always a nice bonus. But rest assured, not all of my recipes shared here on the blog will turn healthy/paleo - I will continue cooking delicious pastas & baking sinful desserts to share! I still enjoy my cheat meal once a week (and fully indulge with no regrets!) but my weeknight dinners are filled with veggies & protein. I stumbled across this cauliflower fried "rice" recipe which is ideal for Meatless Mondays. It's so easy to make and tastes even better than Chinese takeout. 

1 head of cauliflower (about 2 1/2 cups chopped in a food processor)
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 onion, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
6 large carrots, chopped
2-3 tablespoons soy sauce (vary depending on taste)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons scallions, chopped

Rinse & chop the cauliflower into florets and put in a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is tiny and resembles rice.
Preheat a large skillet on medium heat. Drizzle sesame oil and add onion, peas & carrots, and fry until tender.
Slide veggies around to the sides of the pan and pour eggs in the center. Using a spatula, scramble the eggs. Once cooked, combine with the onion, peas and carrots.
Add the cauliflower to the veggie and egg mixture. Add scallions. Pour soy sauce on top and stir fry until heated through and cauliflower is tender. Serve warm & enjoy!


  1. Personally I also do similar rice to yours, it's really healthy and delicious ;) And I followed you back as Iwona Zając via GFC (#175) :) Keep in touch, dear :)

  2. I make this often, I LOVE it!! Yours look delicious. I always add siracha at the end :) I have been doing the paleo diet for well over a year and I love it!
