Chicken and Cauliflower “Fried Rice” Recipe

by Deliciously Organic on April 16, 2012

cauliflower fried rice

I hesitated to make “fried rice” from cauliflower for many months. I just didn’t think the taste would be comparable to “real” fried rice. I was wrong. The cauliflower picks up the savory and delicious flavors of the coconut oil and Tamari. The result is flavorful, protein-packed, and full of vegetables. It’s a complete dinner in a bowl which made my family very happy.

One of the most important steps in this recipe is to chop the cauliflower until it’s chunky and about the same size as rice. Some pieces will be a little bigger than others, but the photo below should help you know exactly what to expect.

  

Chicken and Cauliflower “Fried Rice” Recipe

Serving Size: Serves 6

Chicken and Cauliflower “Fried Rice” Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken

  • 1 tablespoon Tamari sauce or coconut aminos

  • 2 teaspoons dry sherry
1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 heads cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces

  • 1 cup peas
  • 2 carrots, cut into small cubes

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, divided

  • 4 tablespoons fermented tamari sauce or coconut aminos

  • 3 large eggs

  • 4 green onions, chopped

Instructions

Place chicken, Tamari, sherry and garlic in a medium bowl. Stir and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Place half of the cauliflower in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for 12-15 one-second pulses until cauliflower is about the size of rice. Place chopped cauliflower in a bowl. Repeat with second batch of cauliflower.

Place peas and carrots in a small saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a simmer and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon coconut oil and swirl to coat. Place chicken in skillet and cook, breaking up into small pieces with the back of a wooden spoon, until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan. Add remaining 2 tablespoons coconut oil and swirl to coat. Add cauliflower and Tamari to the pan. Stir constantly for about 2 minutes until cauliflower is hot and coated with the Tamari. Make a well in the center of the pan, crack the eggs and pour them into the well. Stir eggs in the middle of the pan until scrambled, then stir into the cauliflower. Add the peas, carrots, green onion and chicken. Stir for about 2 minutes until all ingredients are incorporated and hot. Season to taste with a bit more Tamari or sea salt if needed. Serve immediately.

I love you! My son and husband have continue to enjoy fried rice while I am on GAPS, I love fried rice and this recipe made my day. I never would have thought to use cauliflower. :) THANK YOU!

I usually make my fried rice with bacon, too! I chop two strips of bacon, fry it, toss in the veggies, then the eggs, then the rice. The tamari goes in at the end. Fried rice is a great way to get veggies like zuchini in my son, I chop them up really fine, almost minced, he doesn’t even know it’s there.

Karen April 16, 2012 at 2:45 pm

not sure if my comment went through, I dont’ see it. But, I said “I love you” :) , I never would have thought to use cauliflower as rice for fried rice. My husband and son have enjoyed fried rice while I’m on GAPS, now I can make it for ME, Thank you! :o) I usually add real bacon bits to my fried rice, too.

Your website was just what I needed today! I’m also an Air Force wife and was just told by my naturopathic doctor I needed to start eating the Paleo way. I left overwhelmed as I know I need to transform my whole families way of eating. This dish looks so good and for me finding alternitives that my family loves and getting my girls to get away from dairy and grains will help with their allergies and me getting some weight off. SO glad I came home & searched and found your site! Thanks for a giveaway!

I have been wanting to try cauliflower rice, but haven’t gotten around to it. This recipe inspires me. I am hoping my husband likes it as well as regular fried rice. I have a hard time getting him to eat more healthily, even, though he knows it is no option for me. He must have bread, rice, pasta, or potatoes at every meal. He loves the grain free banana bread I make, so I am hoping he’ll love this also! I recommend your site to others who are just starting to eat more healthily.

Could you cook the cauliflower a little first and put it through a ricer? Would that work? I don’t think I have the “knife skills” to chop it that fine ;)

It looks really good, though. Definitely want to try it.

Reply

Deliciously Organic April 17, 2012 at 4:03 pm

I haven’t tested it that way, but my fear is that it would turn mushy. This recipe calls for chopping by hand, then pulsing it in the food processor to get the right texture.

This looks wonderful. I have recently gone grain free after years of stomach issues. My response was to go to the doctors who sent me for countless expensive test with no results so they sent me for more. I finally said enough is enough and decided if they weren’t willing to talk about food intake with me I would do my own research. I feel better since going Gluten Free but I feel fabulous when I am grain free. Thank you for being such a wonderful resource. I value your wisdom and have learned so much from the online community.

This recipe is delicious. Even my picky eater boyfriend loved it. I stumbled upon your blog after a friend posted a link to your coffee cake recipe (which I plan on trying in the near future) and, after reading many of your posts, I discovered that you too have Hashimoto’s. I too had went thrugh period during which I was plagued by unexplainable hives, but mine were usually on my legs, stomach, or lower back. I also have panic disorder, so I chalked it up to that. Now I’m wondering if a low fat high grain diet has had a negative effect on my Hashimoto’s and my disposition for anxiety. I’ve started my own dieting experiment that has completely cut grains and only allows whole foods. I’m on day three and I feel great. I don’t feel weak after strenuous workouts and I seem to be in a better mood. Despite eating way more fats, my weight has not changed significantly (I’m acually down 0.2 pounds). I’ve continued to eat lots of veggies and some fruits as I had before. I used to eat like a pescatarian with my protein sources coming from fish, tofu, beans, and legumes, but now I’ve integrated organic chicken and grass fed beef into my diet. I’m very much looking forward to making your grain free pancakes for breakfast tomorrow!

I love cauliflower fried rice and fix it regularly. My family has been paleo for over a year now and adapted very well. First I love your site and recipes but I just want to them row out there that peas are a legume and therefore NOT on the paleo diet for anyone who follows it strictly.

Reply

Deliciously Organic January 28, 2013 at 8:29 am

I appreciate your you comment and am so glad your family has adapted nicely to a Paleo diet! When it comes to some of the questionable foods such as peas, green beans, raw/cultured dairy, and such I usually refer to Mark Sisson’s site. He says that fresh green beans and fresh peas can be consumed since they aren’t dried and don’t contain such high amounts of phytic acid as dried beans, so I decided to leave them in this dish. Of course, if your body can’t handle the peas, then I recommend adding 2x the amount of carrots in this recipe. Here’s his post about peas and green beans: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/are-peas-and-green-beans-healthy/#axzz2JHvI38WS

Reply

C Robeen January 28, 2013 at 9:12 am

Thank you so much for your reply. I originally read Mark’s book Primal Blueprint when we started eating this way so I do trust what he says. I had read extensively on green beans and we do eat those. I had never seen this article on peas. Thank you so much for sharing. I love peas and may re-introduce them on an occasional basis. Thanks again!

I tried this recipe on yesterday evening’s supper and I think it’s really delicious!
I had to change something… I made it with turkey, sliced and marinated in turmeric, curry and paprica (we don’t use ground chicken here in Italy) and adding 2x carrots instead of peas (we’re paleo too)… really good!
I’ve been lurking these cauliflower “fried rice” recipes from 6 months me too and now I think this will be a dish we’ll eat at least monthly in winter!!!
Tx for sharing and… I LOVE your site ;)

I made this tonight with shredded chicken. My son, who is recently adopted and spent most of his early years with a Japanese-American grandmother, ate it up like it was dessert. He loves rice and Asian meals, but generally shies away from my paleo counterfeits in this category. Success! Thank you.

This was AMAZING!!! We ground our own organic chicken breast and substituted edamame for peas. We LOVED the riced cauliflower. This dish was so much lighter than traditional fried rice.

Reply

Mary L January 9, 2014 at 5:09 am

Loved it! Thank you for the recipe!

I, too, ground my own Organic Chicken (I’m not sure what I’m feeding my family if I buy it pre-package ground)! And used “frozen peas & carrots” mix to cut down on prep time. I only used 1 very large head of Organic Cauliflower and it made more than my largest pan could hold (and I have a large pan)!

For the next time, I would scramble the eggs in a separate pan and add them cooked to the mixture ~ they seemed to disappear when I cooked them in the pan.
