How to make low-carb spicy kale and coconut fried rice

Print this recipe
In the recipe below, cauliflower "rice" stands in for white or brown rice for a low-carb version of classic fried rice. Veggies, including carrots, kale and peas, kick the dish up a notch, and coconut adds an exotic flair.
Ricing cauliflower in a food processor isn't difficult, but some stores now sell pre-riced cauliflower. This easy shortcut makes this dish even faster to prepare. Because cauliflower rice needs to be cooked only about 5 minutes instead of 20, you can get this healthy side dish on the table in a snap.
