Cauliflower Fried Rice Vegan

Cauliflower Fried Rice [v.]

I know this recipe is circulating all over the internetz but it is too good and looked too pretty to not share it here. The beauty of cauliflower fried rice is the fact that you are eating ALL VEGGIES even though it feels like a grain. I mean okay, it’s cauliflower, so yeah… it tastes like cauliflower… but barely. If you season this baby the right way, you’ll be fooling yourself. So eat as much fried “rice” as you want baby – because it is guilt-free!

The Recipe

You will need:

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 tbs sesame oil (more or less for preference)
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (more or less for preference)
  • Salt (optional)

To make:

  • In 2-3 batches, use your food processor to “pulse” the florets. You don’t want to over-pulse it, because you want it to have that grainy-rice texture. Place into a bowl and set aside.
  • Over medium heat, add sesame oil, onion, peas, and carrots. Sauté until cooked.
  • Add your cauliflower rice to the mix and add your soy sauce – mix and cook over med heat – stirring frequently.
  • Salt if you would like, but the soy sauce was enough for me. Your preference!
  • NOTE: I added a bit more sesame oil, because I just love it so much. It’s all up to you.
  • Serve.

This has become one of my favorite fast dishes to make, and my gosh… so filling. If you’re anything like me, you will really think you are eating rice. Grab a pair of chopsticks and get your rice on. xx Bianca

    • I’m not quite sure about a handheld blender… it may be hard to keep the cauliflower contained (and could make a mess) but then again, I haven’t tried it. I know my sister used her Magic Bullet and it worked out okay! Sorry I couldn’t be of more help, though! xx

  2. This looks awesome! I have seen a lot of recipes for regular cauli rice (which to me seem kind of boring) but never cauliflower stir fried rice- I can really see the flavor working here. Definitely going to try!
