Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice

To begin with I want to remind everyone that anytime you substitute something you have to go into it knowing that it is most likely not going to be the same as the original.
With that being said last week I made some cauliflower chicken fried rice. Cauliflower is amazing because it can be used to mimic all kinds of other things because of mild taste. Some like it in their pizza crust, some like it mashed and some like it riced. I love cauliflower steamed but since started a low carb diet I haven’t had any rice or mashed potatoes and cauliflower has been such a life saver. Last week I was craving some Chinese, but since most Chinese  is not Keto friendly, I decided to try my hand at cauliflower fried rice and get my cravings fix.


To start with I put some chicken tenderloins in a skillet with olive oil to sauté and seasoned with some salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste.


As the chicken cooked I riced the cauliflower using my shredder attachment for my Kitchen Aid. If you don’t have one of these you can also you can always use a normal hand grater or food processor.



Now that I had the “rice” I chopped a carrot and a small onion.

In another large skillet I add more olive oil and let the onions and carrots cook on medium high heat until tender.


I don’t like peas which is sometimes added to fried rice so I instead to add my ‘green’ I steamed some frozen broccoli in the microwave to add to the pan.


After the onions and carrots are tender, about 6 minutes , I added the cauliflower rice and the steamed broccoli to the pan.


At this point I drizzled in some soy sauce and mixed together. I continued to cook on medium high heat until the cauliflower rice was soft. You can add in salt and pepper and more soy sauce to taste.

Lastly I pushed the rice mix to the side and scrambled two eggs in the corner of the pan. I then added in the cooked chicken that I chopped up to the fried rice. I mixed it all together and simmered for another 2 minutes on low.

Once fully cooked I added the fired rice to a bowl and enjoined my delicious dinner!

Now this meal does taste similar to fried rice but the consistency is not the same so be prepared. However, I do think this is a wonderful substitute that I will definitely be making again soon.
