  • 2 tbsp peanut oil (can substitute canola or vegetable oil)
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 4 garlic cloves pressed
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger optional
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 4 cups riced cauliflower
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce


Cauliflower Rice:

  • Cut the leaves and the bulky stem off the cauliflower and discard. Wash cauliflower well and pat dry. Cut the head of cauliflower into 4-6 chunks. Use large holes side of the box grater to grate all the cauliflower chunks.

Cauliflower Fried Rice:

  • Dice carrots and onions, press garlic, grate ginger (if using), measure soy sauce, and whisk eggs in a bowl with soy sauce. Set everything aside.
  • Preheat a large pan or a wok first and then add peanut oil. Sauté diced onions, peas, and carrots until softened and starts to brown. Once it’s soft, take the veggies out of the pan and set aside. 
  • Add a little bit of oil to the pan if needed and add garlic and ginger. Sauté just until fragrant and pour in whisked eggs. Stir eggs to scramble and when eggs are mostly done, add riced cauliflower. Stir until all mixed together and add veggies back into the pan.
  • Drizzle soy sauce all over and cook for about 3-5 minutes, slowly stirring often so the cauliflower cooks evenly. 
  • Serve right away.
