This cauliflower fried rice recipe couldn’t be easier. Start by heating butter in a large skillet then add in eggs and scramble until fully cooked. Remove them from the pan and set aside. Add carrots, onion and riced cauliflower to the same pan and cook until tender and lightly caramelized. Stir in garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add the eggs back to the pan and stir in soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil and Sriracha. Serve immediately with sesame seeds and green onions for garnish, if desired.

How to make cauliflower into rice

The best way to rice cauliflower is in the food processor. I cut up cauliflower into large chunks then pulse until it resembles rice! It’s that easy! I like to rice a couple heads of cauliflower at a time then place the extra in a ziplock bag and freeze it up to 3 months. It makes it super easy to throw this recipe together with already frozen riced cauliflower! You can also use store bought frozen riced cauliflower. There is no need to thaw either! Frozen riced cauliflower can be added directly to the pan.

  • Soggy rice

    I tried this, but it just came out a soggy mess. First, i didn’t add egg as i wanted it to be vegan. Second, I shredded the cauliflower with a cheese shredder since i don’t have a food processor. It did initially look like rice, but it maintained a lot of fluid. I used a cheese cloth to drain the liquid, but after adding the soy sauce and cooking everything up, it went back to soggy. What’s worse is the fluid would pool at the bottom.

    • Hi!

      Sorry to hear this! I definitely think shredding the cauliflower with the cheese shredder brought out a lot of moisture. I never have this problem when I use the food processor or frozen rice cauliflower.

      Thanks!

    Delicious, fast and easy. We add thinly sliced pork chops as well. We used frozen riced cauliflower and I cooked it for probably 20 min instead of the recomend 4 to get all the water out.
