Fast and Simple Cauliflower Rice

Need a simple side dish but trying to avoid going carb crazy?!


We are LOVING cauliflower fried rice but I do believe there are good approaches to this simple little dish and not so good!

My best tip: KEEP IT SIMPLE!

Here’s what we found to rock our world:


  • 3 cups riced cauliflower
  • 1 TBS coconut oil
  • 2 TBS slivered almonds
  • 2 TBS fresh parsley


  1. Heat coconut oil over medium high heat
  2. When hot, add riced cauliflower and sauté for 5-7 minutes or until it reaches your desired tenderness (note the color of the cauliflower will change slightly as it cooks…I used that as a guide!)
  3. Top with the almonds and parsley and SERVE & ENJOY!


Note: We paired this with meatloaf for a classic, home cooked combo that warmed the tummy but didn’t grow the waistline!!!

Cauliflower Fried Rice

If there’s one thing this Whole 30 jazz is helping me do – its step outside of my normal cooking habits!


We loved the Cauliflower Fried rice and more so the versatility of it!


  • 1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets*
  • 2 TBS coconut oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 pound fresh green beans, snapped and cut into 1″ pieces
  • 3-4 cloves garlic
  • 1 – 1.5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  1. To “rice” the cauliflower, place florets in food processor and pulse until it reaches rice-like consistency. Work in small batches and repeat as needed *NOTE: Costco sells pre-riced cauliflower that makes this process MUCH faster!
  2. In large skillet/pot, melt coconut oil and heat over medium heat. When hot, add onion, carrots and beans. Cook 4-5 minutes and add garlic, cooking one additional minute.
  3. Add the riced cauliflower, salt and pepper to the pot and combine with additional vegetables.
  4. Add chicken broth and cover with lid, simmering 12-15 minutes.
  5. Remove pan from heat and serve as you wish!

We enjoyed this as a side with Chicken & Apple sausage.
