A bold and comforting fried rice recipe for those on a low-carb or grain-free diet. This amazing paleo cauliflower fried rice is so convincing, you won’t even miss the rice! You can eat your fill without busting your New Years Resolution this year.
Let me start out by saying, I love grains. And dairy.
Although I have tried the paleo diet and think of it as a very healthy option (we use it as a cleanse on occasion) I could never give up good bread, cheese, or pasta long term.
Yet it is January, and many of us are thinking along the lines of “low carb”… So, I’ve got a healthy paleo-friendly dinner option to share with you today.
After all, I don’t think I could stand it if I was the cause of your dietary demise… at least not today.
Introducing Paleo Cauliflower Fried Rice.
No, not a fried rice recipe with chunks of cauliflower in it, but a dish using cauliflower as (or in place of) the rice. I promise, you’ll be shocked at how good it is.
To make cauliflower fried rice, prepare all your ingredients, just as you would for a classic fried rice recipe: beaten eggs, chopped scallions, carrots, garlic, ginger, chopped chicken, soy sauce, maybe a little chile paste.
Then place roughly chopped cauliflower florets in the food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is chopped to the size of rice.
Flash fry the ingredients in a wok over high heat, one at a time, to keep them from over cooking. Then flash fry the cauliflower until just barely cooked through, but not mushy. Add all the ingredients into the wok and toss. Viola!
The secret ingredient (other than the cauliflower) is bacon.
Adding a little bacon to the wok, allows it to mingle with the soy and ginger and provide that unctuous full-bodied flavor traditional fried rice offers.
It’s a mind-blowing option for low-carb dieters.
In fact, I don’t know that I wouldn’t chose it over classic fried rice. You’ve got to try this!
