Cauliflower Fried Rice


Today were digging into the healthiest "fried rice" ever. Music to your ears right? Mine too. 

Is anyone else impressed with this new era of creating fabulously healthy alternatives to our most beloved (yet horribly unhealthy) foods?

Ice cream made from frozen bananas, caramel made from dates, pie crust made from nuts, and of course, fried rice made from cauliflower. I mean this is impressive!


GO TEAM! Let's keep 'em coming. 

BTW- If someone could find a way to make pizza out of broccoli that would be great...


So I'm sure by now you get that this recipe is made with cauliflower rather than actually rice. (I just love how smart you are!). But you may still be wondering how exactly you make that happen and if the process is easy enough to be worth your time.

Let me tell you - this is the easiest, quickest, most painless recipe ever and it is ABSOLUTELY worth your time. About 10 minutes of it, to be exact.


This process ideally requires a food processor but a hand grater will work too, it just might take you longer! You'll pulse the cauliflower florets in your processor until they are completely broken down. From there you will add your remaining ingredients into a wok/large skillet and cook for 4 minutes. THAT'S IT! You're ready to eat. 

I recommend having Friends on in the background while you cook and eat the rice, that's what I did.



If you make your own cauliflower fried rice, I'd love to see it. Snap a pic and share it with me by tagging #projectsunny on Instagram :)

Cauliflower Fried Rice
A healthy spin on traditional fried rice.
  • 1/2 head cauliflower,
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3/4 cup medium white onion, chopped
  • 1 cup mixed frozen vegetables
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2-3 green onion, chopped
  • to taste salt and pepper
1. Cut cauliflower into small florets. If the core is tender you can include it, if it is hard just discard it. 2. Add the florets to your food processor. To make it easier to chop, don't fill the processor more than half way. (You may have to do more than one batch). Chop until the cauliflower is completely broken down. It should look like small grains. 3. Heat a large skillet or wok over high heat and add sesame oil. Add onion and cook for 1 minute until tender and slightly translucent. Add mixed vegetables and cauliflower. Cook, stirring, for 4 minutes. 4. Add soy sauce and stir until well combined. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with green onions. Serve hot.
