Cauliflower rice is a low-carb, high fiber and low-calorie rice alternative. It makes a healthy twist on traditional Chinese fried rice. I have been in love with this dish to avoid feeling bloated from a carb-heavy meal. Preparing it from scratch using a food processor is the most cost-effective option but you can also purchase the pre-cut frozen cauliflower rice.

How to make Cauliflower Rice

  1. Remove the cauliflower florets from the head of cauliflower.
  2. Grate the cauliflower florets using food processor or a box grater.

Ingredients

  • 360g riced cauliflower
  • 360g baby carrots/carrot, diced
  • 2 zucchini, diced
  • 230g mushroom, diced
  • 500g chicken breast, cubed (use tofu as vegetarian/vegan alternative)
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tbsp GF soy sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp GF sweet soy/ teriyaki sauce
  • Basil/other herbs for garnish

Directions

  1. To a large non-stick skillet, heat avocado oil on medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for 30 seconds, then add in the chicken. Cook for 5 minutes or until all sides are cooked evenly. (For vegetarian/vegan option, sauté tofu on a separate pan until crisp.)
  2. Add carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, and cook for about 5 minutes until vegetables begin to soften. Stir intermittently.
  3. Add cauliflower rice t skillet and stir together for 2-3 minutes. (Avoid overcooking because cauliflower will get mushy.)
  4. Add GF soy sauce, sweet soy sauce (or to taste) and basil for garnish.
