Fried Cauliflower Rice


I love cauliflower, but as a rice substitute the cauliflower taste really stands out. Not so in this fried rice dish. If you're craving some takeout this is the healthy ticket for you!

  • 2 medium carrots, roughly chopped

  • 2 stalks celery, roughly chopped

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • ½ cup diced onion

  • 1 head cauliflower, roughly chopped

  • ½ cup shredded napa cabbage

  • ¼ cup sliced bamboo shoots

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh chives

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar

  • ¼ teaspoon Sriracha sauce, or to taste


  1. Mince carrots and celery in the bowl of a food processor.

  2. Heat oil in a large, 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and minced carrot-celery mixture; saute, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, mince cauliflower in the food processor until fine or rice-like.

  4. Stir cauliflower into the onion mixture and allow vegetables to brown slightly, about 5 minutes more. Add cabbage, bamboo shoots, and chives and cook until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.

  5. Add beaten eggs and stir vigorously while they cook, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in soy sauce, vinegar, and Sriracha. Serve hot.
