How to Make Cauliflower fried "rice"


  • 1Remove leaves and stalks from cauliflower and discard. Grate head with box grater or grating blade on food processor until finely chopped. Sliver radishes and carrot. I use a vegetable peeler for this step. Clean and slice green onions.
  • 2Prepare your meat to be added. You can use any cooked meat. In this instance, I used a salmon filet that had been cooked and leftover from a previous meal so I broke it into bite size flakes. The salad shrimp you can buy in the freezer section of the grocery are good.
  • 3Add vegetable oil to bottom of wok or large skillet
  • 4When oil is hot, add garlic and cook til fragrant, stirring constantly.
  • 5Add green onions and cook, stirring, one minute. Then add radishes, carrot and ginger, stirring, one minute.
  • 6Add cauliflower and continue to stir fry five minutes (or so) stirring constantly.
  • 7Add garlic-chili sauce and soy sauce.
  • 8Either push the vegetable mixture to the side or make a well in the middle of the mixture in the bottom of your cooking utensil. Add a little more oil and pour in eggs which have been beaten.
  • 9Cook until eggs are done but moist. Pull the vegetable mixture into the eggs and add cooked meat. Sprinkle cooked, crumbled bacon over top.
  • 10Add more soy sauce to your helping, if desired.
