Cauliflower Fried Rice (Gluten Free)

I cook with a lot of rice. Of course, everyone starts getting a tad tired of it. I had a head of cauliflower and was wondering what to do with it when I got this idea. When I used to eat a full raw diet, I used this in place of rice. I decided to dress it up even more and make fried rice. This is really light and quick, a great quick meal. Also think of all those nutrients!


  • 1 head of cauliflower, washed and trimmed
  • 1 cup onion, minced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 1/4 cup green peas
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce or to taste
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1-2 Tbsp grapeseed oil or water


Chop cauliflower and process in food processor until it resembles rice. Set aside. Lightly steam broccoli, set aside. In a large skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat. Saute onions until translucent, then add garlic and ginger. Saute another minute. Add carrots and stir for another 2-3 minutes. Stir in cauliflower, cover skillet and cook for 10 minutes. Add broccoli, green peas, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Cover skillet, remove from heat.

  1. 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!

  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. 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
