Cauliflower rice is a staple of those on the keto diet. Instead of simply giving you the plain keto cauliflower fried rice recipe, I’m going to jazz it up and give you my keto cauliflower fried rice recipe.
This keeps things a little more interesting, you can have this as a meal by itself. If you want to use this as a keto side dish, simply leave out some of the additions and keep the recipe simple.
Cauliflower is an excellent keto friendly vegetable since it’s relatively inexpensive, easy to prepare and takes on the flavour of your entree if you’re using it as a side dish.
This makes it the perfect rice or mashed potato substitute for those meals that need something to sop up the gravy.
I’m in love with the diversity of cauliflower, adding different seasonings, sauces and cheeses to it all the while to switch up the flavour profile while keeping my meals low carb.
Here’s my go-to cauliflower fried rice recipe for simple weeknight dinner.
