Cauliflower fried rice has the texture and flavor you crave from traditional fried rice, but it’s loaded with veggies, high in fiber and low in carbs. Serve with your favorite protein for a nourishing, paleo-friendly meal.
If you’ve been following EBF for a while you’ll know that I’m a huge advocate of planning out your meals for the week as a way to stay on track with your healthy eating goals. (Get my meal planning tips and grab my free meal plan printable here!)
You’ll likely also remember that over the past year or so Isaac and I have tried out several meal delivery services and have been using Terra’s Kitchen regularly.
We love using Terra’s kitchen for a variety of reasons. Not only is it super convenient, but it gives us a basic meal plan for the week (without having to do anything except choose the meals) and saves me time both with grocery shopping and meal planning. It also ensures we cook at home more often than not. We usually order three full meals for the week and sometimes I’ll add on an extra protein option (usually shrimp or chicken) so that we can use it for a simple dinner recipe or as a protein option for lunches.
If you’re interested in reading my initial review of Terra’s Kitchen, you can find that here. Just be aware that the meals change and some of those meals I highlighted aren’t part of the TK menu anymore.
Another reason I love Terra’s Kitchen is that it allows me to try different recipes, which is really fun for someone who’s always looking for inspiration in the kitchen. One example of this — a couple weeks ago I ordered the Mexican Skillet Shrimp Chilaquiles — a dish I have never had before, let alone cooked. The meal turned out to be delicious and introduced me to a new type of Mexican dish I know I’ll be making again.
Since we’ve been using Terra’s Kitchen regularly for over a year now I have tried a ton of the recipes and found a few that are household favorites. These are meals that I’ve ordered at least 2-3 times. One of these is the cauliflower fried rice, which is loaded with veggies and so quick and easy to whip up. Cauliflower rice wasn’t something new to me as I’ve made it on my own before and have actually been meaning to share the recipe, but I love the TK’s version so much that I’ve decided to share it with you today.
This dish is low in calories and carbs so I recommend pairing it with some sort of protein or serving it as a side dish. I really like adding shrimp, similar to my quinoa fried rice recipe. I simply cook the shrimp in a separate pan with al little oil, salt and pepper and serve it over the cauliflower fried rice for a full meal.
I hope you’ll give this cauliflower fried rice recipe a try!
Cauliflower Fried Rice
- 2 Tablespoons avocado oil
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- ground black pepper
- 2 1/2 cups cauliflower florets
- 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
- 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flake
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 cups broccoli florets
- 1/3 cup shredded carrots
- 1/3 cup fire roasted corn
- 2 teaspoons low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
- sesame seeds and sriracha, for serving
- Make Cauliflower Rice: Add cauliflower to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until broken into rice-size pieces.
- Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in 1 tablespoon avocado oil, garlic, onion and ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper. Stir for 30 seconds.
- Stir-fry Cauliflower “Rice”: Add cauliflower and salt to the wok and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Remove to a bowl.
- Stir-fry Vegetables: Place the wok back over high heat and add 1 tablespoon avocado oil, sesame oil, broccoli, carrots and corn. Cook, stirring until broccoli is cooked through but still has a crunch (3-4 minutes).
- Finish Stir-fry: Add cauliflower rice and soy sauce back into the wok with the veggies and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. To Serve: Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve straight from the wok!
You can buy pre-chopped cauliflower rice if you don’t own a food processor. This also helps reduce clean up time!
