We love our fried rice, especially a vegetable fried rice that’s healthier because we can eat more and not feel so guilty! Our healthy fried rice recipe is loaded with broccoli and other vegetables. To make it even healthier, we’ve created this recipe using brown rice. Nutritionally, brown rice has more vitamins and nutrients than white rice so making a fried rice recipe with brown rice is just as easy and delicious.
You can use any type of brown rice or you can even use wild rice if you like. Just make sure to use day old rice because it gives a better fried rice texture. Fresh rice is usually soft and more tender, which often can make a mushy fried rice. So the more firm and cold cooked rice you have, the better the fried rice will become.

The wonder of this recipe is that there’s no rice at all! The “rice” part is 100% cauliflower and when chopped small, the tiny bits of cauliflower resembles the “rice”. When cooked up, you don’t miss the rice too much because the texture is so much like rice! Replacing the rice for cauliflower makes this recipe super low-carb and healthier. The small cauliflower bits truly resembles the same bite and texture as rice. This easy cauliflower recipe has minced cauliflower that soaks up all the flavors just like rice, but you doesn’t have all the carbs and calories that rice has.
The secret is to make sure to keep the cauliflower with a good bite and not cook it to be mushy. Another key factor is to hand-mince it to get the perfect texture. You can use a food processor too, but make sure to not overprocess the cauliflower or else it will be mushy. This is our favorite food processor for home; linked here.
