Cauliflower rice? Yep and I can’t even stress to you how this amazing Whole30 cauliflower fried rice is going to rock your world. If you remotely think you don’t like cauliflower you have to give this a try because it doesn’t even taste like cauliflower. That’s right, it doesn’t taste like cauliflower and it is the ultimate mind trick when it comes to eating your veggies and remaining compliant with the Whole30 Challenge.
Cauliflower rice is literally grated cauliflower that has the look and texture of rice. It cooks quickly and it takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with so you get to control the flavor by your oil and seasoning combination.
You have the option of using fresh cauliflower for this recipe by grating it yourself in a food processor or you can go the easy route and buy it pre-grated and frozen. I love the Trader Joe’s frozen cauliflower rice and keep it in the freezer for whenever the urge to make Whole30 cauliflower fried rice strikes me. (almost daily)
