This recipe is actually a cheat for family that likes to eat rice but wants to lose too much carbs. You may cook rice, chop up some broccoli and mix the two together. It tastes almost as good with cauliflower rice. Vegan fried rice tastes like a mix of rice and quinoa. It’s delicious!  But we all know that cauliflower is not rice, so I add a few more ingredients to this all veggie version. Feel free to add to or leave out what you want to make it your own.

Cauliflower “Rice” is an easy side. While it’s made fairly quickly, it does require that the cauliflower be grated (either by hand or in a food processor) to get that fine rice texture. BUT, it can be chopped on a cutting board and be a made chunky, too. It will taste the same, just look less like rice.

Tips For Making Fried Rice Recipe Cauliflower

  1. You can make the cauliflower rice yourself or use frozen cauliflower fried rice to make it easier on yourself!
  2. Use a mix of frozen vegetables (broccoli, rice, and carrots) to save even more time.
  3. Don’t skip the fresh garnish, it adds so much flavor!
  4. Double the recipe so you’ll have leftovers for easy lunches all week!
  5. Add baked tofu or tempeh for an extra boost of plant-based protein!

Fun fact— Did you know that the rice in fried rice isn’t actually fried? In traditional Chinese cooking, the rice is stir-fried which resulted in calling the dish fried rice!
