Asian Fried Cauliflower Rice

Cooking for Kids

I love cauliflower rice. There are dozens of recipe options but this is my nanny family’s favorite recipe I found on SkinnyTaste web site. It’s such an easy and yummy way to get the kids to eat more vegetables.

You Will Need:

  • 1 medium head (about 24 oz) cauliflower, rinsed
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • pinch of salt
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 small onion, diced fine
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 5 scallions, diced, whites and greens separated
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce, or more to taste (Tamari for Gluten Free or coconut amigos for those don’t use soy).

What to Do:

1. Remove the core and let the cauliflower dry completely.
2. Coarsely chop into florets, then place half of the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice or couscous – don’t over process or it will get mushy. Set aside and repeat with the remaining cauliflower.
3. Combine egg and egg whites in a small bowl and beat with a fork. Season with salt.
4. Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium heat and spray with oil.
5. Add the eggs and cook, turning a few times until set; set aside.
6. Add the sesame oil and saute onions, scallion whites, peas and carrots and garlic about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft.Raise the heat to medium-high.
7. Add the cauliflower “rice” to the saute pan along with soy sauce. Mix, cover and cook approximately 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.
8. Add the egg then remove from heat and mix in scallion greens.
