Roasted Cauliflower "Rice"

Rating: 4.5 stars 61
Cauliflower rice is a great low-calorie dish to have in your arsenal especially if you are eating low-carb. Super low in carbs, yet such a satisfying dish you will forget it's made from a vegetable and not a grain. There are two reasons I opted for roasted riced cauliflower in place of sauteed: 1) more flavor and 2) better texture.

Cauliflower Chicken Fried Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
This is comfort food at its best, but so healthy and light compared to its rice-based counterpart. When making this recipe, make sure you have all the ingredients chopped, prepped, and ready as the final stir-fry comes together in 10 minutes!

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.

Cauliflower Rice Stir-Fry
Rating: 4 stars 7

This healthy alternative to fried rice is made with frozen cauliflower rice. Cracking an egg into it while it cooks increases protein and we like it. You can also add shrimp, pork or chicken. This recipe looks like a lot but our family of 3 can finish it.
