Cauliflower Fried Rice

Cauliflower Fried Rice

I don’t cook with cauliflower that often, and I’m not sure why. Ok, that’s a lie. I do know why. It’s because every time I chop a cauliflower it gets all over my kitchen (like literally everywhere) and I can’t deal. But it’s such a versatile little veggie! It’s amazing for pizza crust, a cauliflower mash, added to smoothies (yes) and as a substitute for rice.

Lou is currently in low carb mode. And by “low carb mode” he means only ordering Italian sandwiches two times a week. But with all our other meals he’s actually asking for vegetables and protein. I made this Cauliflower Fried Rice on Tuesday and he was like “um, where has this recipe been the past five years?” And he’s right, I totally need to make this more often! It’s literally all vegetables and a few eggs for added protein. Plus you get the “fried rice” flavor from the soy sauce. And I cleaned up the mess in like six seconds. It’s not so bad 😉
