Air Fryer Cauliflower Fried Rice

I used frozen riced cauliflower that I quickly cooked in the microwave. I then added in 4 more ingredients, put it in my air fryer and had 'fried rice' in under 15 minutes. Best of all, it is low calorie and low fat since there is no oil or butter, yet it's delicious.

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 slices nopales (fresh cactus leaves)

  1. Cook cauliflower rice in the microwave for 5 to 6 minutes. Let stand for 1 minute before carefully opening the bag.

  2. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Cover the bottom and 1/2 inch of the basket sides with aluminum foil.

  3. Mix cauliflower rice, eggs, ham, green onions, and soy sauce in a bowl until well combined.

  4. Air fry for 5 minutes. Remove the basket and stir the cauliflower mixture. Return to air fryer and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
