This low-carb cauliflower fried rice has no rice at all

Print this recipe
This fried "rice" is missing one key ingredient: the rice! But that's no oversight. In the recipe below, cauliflower rice stands in for the higher-carb grain. The result is a play on Chinese takeout favorite at a fraction of the carbs.
To make this dish, you can start with store-bought cauliflower rice, which you'll find in many supermarkets. But if you prefer, you can also "rice" your own cauliflower in the food processor. Either way, the raw cauliflower rice doesn't need to be boiled or steamed like normal rice does. Just add it straight to the pan with the other ingredients, and this delicious side dish will soon be ready to enjoy.
