Light Cauliflower Fried Rice (can I call this fried rice if it doesn’t contain rice?)


I am in love with this recipe.  I have been craving Chinese food a lot lately. Whenever we order in I usually end up eating too much fried rice. Then the next day I feel terrible and bloated.

Thank goodness I found this recipe and jumped on the opportunity to make it for dinner this week. I did serve it with some store bought egg rolls. I know I should have made them from scratch but it doesn’t always happen. 


Cilantro really makes this dish pop. It has been on the top of my list for a while now. I buy it every week and use it on many dishes. 


 I love rice a lot and next time I will probably add a little to the dish so I can truly call it fried rice. I feel a little like a cheat because there is no rice in this but let me know what you think.


Serves 2-4


  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup carrots, shredded
  • 3 cups grated cauliflower ( I used a grater)
  • 2 eggs scrambled
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • cilantro, chopped (optional)


  1. To a large pan add olive oil, onions, and garlic.  Cook on medium heat 2-3 minutes. 
  2. Add frozen peas and carrots. Cook 3-5 minutes. 
  3. Add cauliflower, eggs, and soy sauce. Stir frequently. Cook another 5-7 minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated.
