Paleo Fried Rice

This low carb Paleo Fried Rice uses cauliflower in place of rice but still has all of the normal add-ins needed for a delicious dinner (or any meal really). You can rice your own cauliflower or make your life easier and just grab a bag of riced cauliflower out of the freezer aisle of Traders Joes if you have one near you (yes they have that now!). In fact, do yourself a favor and grab a few bags of it for future meals as well. OR as I always recommend with my patients, double this recipe to give you leftovers for lunches the next few days.


  • 1 head cauliflower, riced
  • About 1/2-1 pound meat of choice, cooked and chopped (I used pork but chicken also works)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2-1 tbs coconut or avocado oil
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger (or about 1/4 tsp dried ginger)
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1-2 tbs coconut aminos (I tend to go on the lighter side for less sodium)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 green onions, chopped


  1. Rice cauliflower 
  2. In skillet, add oil and toss in carrot and celery and cook on medium heat stirring frequently about 2 minutes
  3. Stir in cauliflower, garlic, coconut aminos, sesame oil, ginger, pepper flakes and meat and cook stirring frequently until rice is tender about 5 minutes
  4. Stir in peas and cook another 2 minutes or so. (You can add these in the prior step but I always tend to add them closer to the end of cooking to ensure they get heated but not mushy.)
  5. After adding peas, add a little oil and eggs to a separate pan and cook (I don’t beat them but rather just crack them both into pan with a little oil and stir frequently as they cook).
  6. Stir cooked eggs into cauliflower, top with green onion and enjoy!
