Cauliflower Fried Rice (Gluten Free)

cauliflower-ricewbCauliflower fried rice is a great way to enjoy takeout without the guilt. It also adds variety to your weekly menu. It’s is packed with antioxidants, made with onion, garlic, ginger, peas, broccoli, edamame. It’s easier on the digestive system than rice and it cooks in 20  minutes.   This is really light and quick, a great quick meal.

Making quick, delicious and healthy meals that seem simple yet mind blowing to the pickiest eater.  I would say is my specialty. This 20 minutes fried rice is the perfect example.


  • 1 head of cauliflower, washed and trimmed
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets, cut in bite sized pieces
  • 2 tables grapeseed oil or 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup onion, minced

  • 1 medium carrot, diced
  • 1/2 cup  shelled cooked green edamame or green peas
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce or to taste
  • 1 green onion minced

  1. I rarely come back and give a review, but oh my goodness, this was just amazing. I may never make regular fried rice again. My 13 month old grandson is shoveling it in his little mouth by the fist full. Thank you so much

  2. I recently discovered that you can do all sorts of things with cauli. I have made “couscous” and “pilaf” but have not tried doing a fried rice. Must try it! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Great idea! And easily becomes zero gluten when we use Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or Tamari! Or soy free by using herbs (red curry powder would be great!
