Cauliflower Fried Rice

Want an easy meal that takes less than 10 minutes to make? Try out this Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe! This is my go to meal when I want something quick and easy to make or when I’m low on fresh groceries. The best part about this recipe is that it’s made with mostly frozen ingredients!

What’s so great about frozen ingredients? Let me tell you…

1). They don’t expire as quickly as fresh produce. 

This makes them really easy to have them on hand. Just buy them at the grocery store, throw them in the freezer, and don’t worry about them! Frozen produce takes several months to expire so you don’t need to worry about consuming it quickly like fresh produce or even worse it going bad quickly and having to toss it..

2). Frozen produce is relatively cheap. 

In comparison to fresh produce, frozen produce tends to be the more affordable option. As previously stated, it takes longer to expire so there is a lesser chance of wasting frozen produce in comparison to fresh produce.

3). Frozen produce have high nutritional content

Frozen produce are picked at their peak ripeness, which is typically when the produce is at its maximum nutritional content. On the other hand, fresh produce is often picked before it’s ripe so that it doesn’t ripen until it sits on the store shelves.

Now that you’re as excited about frozen produce as I am, let’s get to the recipe…

What You’ll Need:

Riced Cauliflower: I used frozen riced cauliflower in this recipe. If you don’t like cauliflower, you could also substitute with brown rice or another whole grain.

Veggies: You’ll need peas, carrots, sweet onion, and green onions. I used frozen carrots and peas.

Eggs: You will need two eggs.

Seasoning: This recipe uses garlic, ginger, and coconut aminos. I like using coconut aminos because they are a gluten-free soy sauce alternative.

Avocado Oil: I use avocado to sauté the veggies. I like cooking with avocado oil because it has a high smoke point.

How to Make Cauliflower Fried Rice:

1. Peel and chop one carrot.

2. Add avocado oil to a pan on medium heat. Sauté chopped onion, carrot, and peas on medium heat until the carrots soften.

3. Add garlic to the pan and cook for about 30 seconds.

4. Add the cauliflower rice. Continue to cook and mix the contents of the pan until the cauliflower is cooked.

5. Push ingredients to the side and add two whisked eggs directly to the pan. Scramble the eggs for about 1 minute and then mix the eggs with the rest of the ingredients.

6. Add ginger and coconut aminos to the pan and mix. Cook for a few minutes or until the eggs are fully cooked.

7. Serve in a dish and top with green onions.
