Low Carb Cauliflower Fried Rice

Side Items > Keto Recipes

Chinese style food has been quite the hit at my house and I didn’t want to stop with just low carb Sweet & Sour chicken and General Tso’s Chicken. I made some fried rice to go with any Chinese style dish you make, quite similar to the real thing. I am sure you’ll enjoy it, and I’m sure you’ll be wanting a second serving once you have a bite.

It does take a decent amount of work to make the fried rice, but usually I cook my chicken dishes in the oven and I have plenty of time to get everything ready for the fried rice. Most of the work goes into prepping the cauliflower, but once that’s done it’s a piece of cake. Not to mention, it’s well worth the effort.

Getting some of the moisture out of the raw cauliflower is key here. You want it to fry up and become a little bit crispy. While my method works, it’s a lot more labour intensive than it needs to be. If you have a cookie sheet, I suggest spreading all of the riced cauliflower onto that and then using your own body weight as the force to drain the moisture out.

Yields 3 servings

The Preparation

  • 1 small head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 scallions, sliced thin
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. ginger, minced

The Execution

1. Get a large head of cauliflower and a knife.

4. Transfer the riced cauliflower into a container or cookie sheet. Press all of your body weight onto a paper towel sitting on top of the cauliflower. The idea is to drain as much water as possible from it.

5. It should look a little bit like short grain rice once you finished.

6. Chop up 2 stalks of scallions to put into the fried rice.

10. Put it onto some paper towels to dry off and crisp up. Keep some of the bacon fat in the pan.

12. Put the cauliflower off to the side and add your sesame oil, scallions, garlic, and ginger.

13. Allow this to cook for a minute and mix everything together well. You can add your pepper at this point. I usually go pretty heavy with the pepper because it adds a nice flavor.

14. Push your cauliflower fried rice off to the side and add your 2 scrambled eggs to the pan.

15. You want the eggs to get to an omelette consistency, so allow them to cook through before you flip them to cook more.
