Fried Cauliflower Rice

Updated: Aug 8, 2020

I'd like to start off by saying, we definitely eat rice. I think brown rice, wild rice, etc. are great foods to incorporate into a plant based diet, however, for this recipe, I wanted to try something a little different! Also, this is a great way for anyone who needs to eat gluten-free to still enjoy some yummy fried rice!

It's pretty easy to make! You can rice a head of cauliflower in your food processor or you can just buy a bag that is pre-riced (like I did!). Once you have everything prepared you start by sautéing the onion, peas, and corn in sesame oil.

Once softened, push them to one side of the pan, add a little more oil, and add your mashed tofu.

Let cook for about a minute and then add all your spices to the tofu!

Once your tofu has soaked up those spices and turns a yellow color, mix everything together! Then add cauliflower rice and coconut aminos and stir. Let cook for a few more minutes, garnish with chives, and serve!

We served ours with gardein mandarin crispy chick'n. It was delicious!
