This vegan cauliflower fried rice is such a great dish to make if you are cutting back on grains, carbs, or trying to eat more veggies. With just 25 minutes of your time and few ingredients in your fridge, you can a delicious low-carb and gluten-free dinner to serve your family. Highly recommend!
I know it’s taken me forever to get on the ‘cauliflower rice’ train, but I’m here. I’m on and we’re going for a ride.
To be fair, I was still getting over the previous decade’s obsession with turning cauliflower into mashed potatoes; a dish that will forever be associated with my mother, the South Beach Diet cookbook, and the disappointment that mashed cauliflower doesn’t really taste like creamy mashed potatoes.
Now here we are, 10 years later and cauliflower is BAAAACK. I was a bit skeptical that finely ground cauliflower could actually taste like rice. Like, fool me once, shame on you. But fool me twice? I was planning for a similar experience to the infamous potato incident.
Wrong. So wrong. Finely minced cauliflower stir-fried with crispy sesame tofu, vegetables, and ginger-soy sauce is so incredibly similar to traditional fried rice I had to tell BL that he was eating cauliflower, without a grain of rice in sight.
The same man who will pick out every tiny piece of kale in any dish I have ever served him was downing bowl after bowl of this cauliflower fried rice. So, picky husband approved and I’m assuming, my 3-year-old toddler approved.
Besides being a nutrient-dense, flavor-packed meal, the entire dish comes together in less than 30 minutes. I know this cauliflower fried rice will be a regular rotation in our house.
Fast, easy, and healthy food –> ready, set, go.
This recipe for vegan cauliflower fried rice is not only incredibly simple but incredibly delicious! It is just as good as traditional fried rice, only it’s vegan and it’s healthier.
This cauliflower rice recipe is a fast and easy meal that I love to whip up during the week. It doesn’t require any boiling since no rice is involved, which cuts the process by half! I also love to make any kind of dish that allows me to get in an extra serving of veggies.
By using cauliflower ricer instead of regular white rice, you are cutting your carb intake as well as getting in an extra-large serving of vegetables. That’s what I call a deal!
I love to eat this fried cauliflower rice as a main course all on its own. It is packed with flavor and is very filling if you double up on the serving size. But, it goes great with a variety of other dishes as well.
This cauliflower rice would also be a tasty side when served with this mushroom wonton soup.
No matter what you eat it with or how you serve it, this cauliflower fried rice is a great recipe to have around!
