Cauliflower fried rice is a low carb alternative to regular fried rice. Besides, it’s a delicious Asian-style recipe, made in just 15 minutes!


  • 1¬†large head of cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup peas (70 g), frozen or canned
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels (70 g), frozen or canned
  • 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil (optional)


  1. Follow instructions for cauliflower rice. Set aside.
  2. Add the oil to a skillet and when it’s hot, add the garlic, onion, carrot, peas, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook over medium-high heat until they start to golden brown (about 5 minutes).
  3. Add the corn kernels, stir and cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the cauliflower rice (which it’s already cooked following my cauliflower rice recipe) and stir until well combined.
  5. Add the tamari or soy sauce, stir again and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Finally, add the sesame oil (optional), stir and serve immediately or keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for 1-2 months.


  • The prep and cook time don’t include the time you need to prepare the cauliflower rice.
  • Feel free to use any type of oil or replace it with some water or vegetable stock.
  • Add any veggies, spices or herbs you have on hand.
  • If you don’t eat soy, use some coconut aminos instead of the tamari or soy sauce. You could also add some salt to taste instead.
  • Sesame oil is completely optional, so omit it or use any other oil instead.
