Cauliflower fried rice is a healthier and low carb alternative to traditional fried rice. And I think it tastes just as good! I based this one on a recipe from The Kitchn.


  • 1 head cauliflower

  • 8 slices of bacon, diced

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 2 carrots, diced

  • 1 cup corn

  • 1/2 cup edamame (or peas)

  • 1/4 cup cashews, crushed

  • 2-3 tbsp soy sauce (or tamari sauce)


  1. Chop cauliflower (discard tough inner core) and process in food processor until it breaks down into rice sized pieces. You should have around 5 cups.

  2. Cook bacon on stove top in a pan.

  3. Whisk eggs and scramble them, using the same pan. Remove.

  4. Cook onion and garlic in pan for a few minutes.

  5. Add carrot and saute for 2 minutes.

  6. Stir in all remaining ingredients and mix well.

  7. Cover and cook for 5-8 minutes, until cauliflower is tender.

  8. Add more soy sauce if needed.

Serve with chicken or meat of choice (optional). Makes around 5 serves.

  1. I’m confused I just signed up for the lean legs program. In the cauliflower fried rice recipe it says 1 head of cauliflower and 1 cup of cashews. is this only1 serve???? Because 1 cup of cashews is very high in calories and my shopping list only says 1 head when I need fried rice for the week.
