Using minced cauliflower instead of rice, this "fried rice" is a great way to get your veggies. We prefer the texture of hand minced cauliflower, but you can always mince it in a food processor or buy it pre-minced. If using a food processor, be careful not to process it too much or else the cauliflower will become mushy once cooked. 

This is our favorite food processor for home; linked here. It is a great balance between useable size for the average recipe and how much space is needed to store it.



  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons cooking oil (olive oil, grape seed oil, canola oil - whatever your preference)
  • 1/2 medium onion , chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 cup diced frozen carrots
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce *for gluten-free use tamari
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 2 green onions , diced
  • optional: kosher salt
  • more optional vegetables: celery , broccoli, corn, spinach


  1. Mince cauliflower into very small crumbled pieces, resembling the size of rice or larger because the cauliflower will shrink as it cooks. You can use a food processor to get this texture, but be careful to not process the cauliflower too much or it will become mushy. We prefer to hand mince everything to get the small texture, so it still remains firm when cooked.
  2. Heat large skillet on medium high heat. Add cooking oil, then add onion and garlic. Cook until soft and translucent.

  3. Add cauliflower and sauté until tender, but not mushy soft. Add the peas and carrots and stir until combined.
  4. Add the beaten egg, soy sauce, sesame oil and black pepper. Stir until the egg coats all of the cauliflower and becomes cooked.
  5. If needed, add additional kosher salt to taste. Add green onions and stir until everything is combined.
  6. Serve warm.
