Cauliflower Fried Rice is a delicious, low-carb alternative to fried rice from a restaurant. It comes together quickly and uses ingredients you probably already have on hand.
Cauliflower Fried Rice
I love getting fried rice from our local Chinese restaurant. However, it is definitely not the healthiest thing. This Cauliflower Fried Rice is easy, delicious, and much healthier than what you get at a restaurant. It comes together in less than 30 minutes and you probably already have most of the ingredients on hand. Not to mention, its WAY more delicious than any store-bought kind you might find.
Make it Your Own
Fried rice is one of those recipes that I make when I have a lot of random ingredients in the house. The great thing about this recipe is that you can totally customize it, depending on what you have in your fridge and pantry. I used my favorite ingredients, but feel free to make it your own.
Some ideas for alternate fried rice ingredients:
- snap peas
- baby corn
- sweet onion
- If you don’t want to go full out on the cauliflower rice, you can also do half and half with regular rice.
- If you aren’t a fan of sesame oil, you can use coconut oil, butter, or canola oil.

How to Make Cauliflower Fried Rice
- Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
- Once oil is hot, add white parts of the green onion and garlic. Cook until tender, about 2-3 minutes.
- Add ham, peas, and carrots. Cook for 3-5 minutes.
- Make an open space in the middle of the pan. Add eggs and stir frequently until cooked. Mix the eggs in with the other ingredients.
- Add cauliflower rice and mix until combined. Add soy sauce to taste. Stir and serve immediately. Top with green parts of the green onion and more soy sauce, if desired.
