Low carb meal recipes – Cauliflower fried rice

cauliflower-fried-riceHi Everyone

It seems like we are going all out on cauliflower these days.  Then again why wouldn’t we. Not only is it low in carbs (only 5 grams of carbs per 100 grams) and considered to be a super food, but it also has some amazing health benefits and should be an integral part of any low carb diet plan. Some of its benefits include keeping inflammation in check, fighting cancer and boosting heart health. It also contains many antioxidants that helps your body’s ability to detoxify in many ways. If you have digestion issues then cauliflower is considered to be an important source of dietary fiber which really helps in digestion.  Just be careful with the amount you eat, because after all it is still a cruciferous vegetable and it may cause flatulence, so maybe eat it sometime when you are not expecting to go out or have people over. If it does end up giving you gas then peppermint tea can really help.

These are just some of the ways that cauliflower can really help in promoting a healthy mind and body so lets make  it a regular part of our diet starting today.

I usually make a good sized batch of this and separate portions out in freezer bags and place it in the freezer. That way  I only have to make it once a month and can use it for various meals on the fly.  Beats the hell out of lean cuisine or weight watchers, I can tell you that.


Once you have each ingredient ready you can go ahead and tick it away.


  1. Place water in a saucepan and add peas. Let the water boil and then adjust the  heat to medium-low. Cook the peas for about 5 minutes.  Drain the water and place the peas on the side.
  2. Place 2 table spoons of olive oil in the wok and  over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in hot oil until lightly browned on all sides and cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer meat to a plate.
  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons sesame oil the wok. Saute green onions, carrot, and garlic in hot oil until just softened, about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower; cook and stir until cauliflower had a tender but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Stir pork, peas, and and soy sauce into cauliflower mixture and stir-fry until mixture is hot and slightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Move pork-cauliflower mixture to one side of the wok; pour beaten eggs onto empty side. Scramble eggs until cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes; stir cooked eggs into the pork-cauliflower mixture, breaking up any large chunks.

  1. This recipe sounds great! The steps sound very easy to follow, so I’m definitely going to have to try it out. Thanks for the information about the benefits of cauliflower as well as the idea of freezing what you don’t eat for later meals (it’ll definitely be helpful in a pinch)!

    1. Thanks for the comment. I actually found that one of the hardest parts about going on a diet is the time spent getting the right food ready. But if you have a strategy for meal preparation then you will be able to save lots of time and make the whole process all the more convenient.

  2. Love this!

    This recipe sounds fantastic – I love finding healthier ways to still eat the foods I like – and fried rice is awesome. I have a similar recipe to this that I make all the time with Quinoa though instead of cauliflower. But this one I’ll be trying for sure.

    Usually not a huge fan of cauliflower on its own so this will be a great way to try it.

    Thanks for sharing!
