Fried Cauliflower Rice

Been thinking about trying this healthy alternative to the usual fried rice since it’s low carbs. I was rather surprised as taste wise – it was pretty close to real rice and not what I imagined it to be. Glad I managed to get a head of cauliflower and tried it out so now I have a great fried rice dish to fall back on.



  • Half a head of cauliflower
  • 100 – 150 gm of meat
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten with 1 tsp of soya sauce
  • 1 bowl of frozen mixed veggies
  • Some minced garlic
  • Minced ginger (optional)
  • Olive oil
  • Dash of salt

Marinade for pork 

  • 1/2 tbsp light soya sauce
  • 1/4 tsp dark soya sauce
  • 1 tsp shaoxing wine
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp cornflour



  1. Remove stem from the cauliflower
  2. Chop florets into small pieces and use a grater or food processor to chop up into fine pieces and set aside
  3. Heat olive oil and stir fry meat until half cooked and add in mixed veggies and fry until the meat is cooked and set aside first.
  4. Add some more oil and add the cauliflower and garlic / ginger and fry for 2 mins or so.
  5. Push cauliflower to side of pan and empty a space in the middle of the pan and add eggs in.
  6. Scramble the eggs for a bit and mix fry with the cauliflower on high heat.
  7. Add in the meat and mixed veggies and fry evenly with dashes of salt to season
