Cauliflower Fried Rice

You read it right… except there is no rice, at least not the kind you were thinking. This recipe is grain free, making it a great option for anyone looking to stay away from the carbs and keeping it clean. 

  • 1 small/medium cauliflower 
  • 2 zucchinis, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bunch bok choy, chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
  • 2/3 cup onion, sliced (green onions work great with this recipe)
  • 2 cups carrots, choppped 
  • Himalayan Salt, to taste
  • Pinch of turmeric powder 
  • 2 tsp coriander powder 
  • 1 tsp cumin powder 
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper 
  • 1/3 bunch of cilantro, destemmed and chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil (sesame is ideal)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  1. First start by chopping the cauliflower into four quarters. 
  2. Add the cauliflower pieces to a food processor/ blender one at a time and pulse for about 15 seconds each until the grains are the size of rice. Repeat for remaining pieces. (Working with one piece at a time makes for more even sized cauliflower grains)
  3. Next heat a large enough pan over medium heat and add the oil. 
  4. Add the garlic and onions and sauté for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  5. Add all the chopped vegetables except for the pepper and cook for 4-5 minutes. 
  6. Next add the peppers and cook for an additional 5 minutes until the carrots have softened. 
  7. Add the cauliflower rice, stir for 2-3 minutes. 
  8. In the meanwhile, mix the salt, coriander, cumin turmeric and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. 
  9. Add the spice mix and to the cauliflower rice and mix well. 
  10. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  11. Garnish with chopped cilantro and lime juice and serve hot.
