Cauliflower “Fried Rice”

So the hubs and I tried to go Paleo the month of August. It made for a lottttt of interesting recipes. And to be honest, most were delicious. It’s not that hard going “Paleo”. Unless your a carb queen such as myself. But honestly, it felt good to take a break from the starchy, carby, heavy loves of my dietary world. It was also fun to switch up ingredients for all dinners where I use the most ingredients to cook. My BFF Sar and I were doing it at the same time and I got a TON of good recipes from her; we even started our own Pinterest board to keep track of things we could try out and see if we liked or not. Here’s one of them! Different yes, but husband approved and turned out very tasty.


  • 1 head cauliflower, grated (food processor if you have one)
  • 1 package, shittake mushrooms
  • 6 green onions
  • 2 shallots (or regular white onion), minced
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced (I did without)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos (soy sauce alternative)
  • 3 eggs
  • Coconut oil
  • Sesame oil

(We didn’t, but you could throw your favorite protein in with it for a full meal. We just had as a side one night)

Step One:

Grate your cauliflower up. Easiest way to do this is for sure with a food processor. Takes no time at all, just cut your florets off into chunks and throw in to grind.

Step Two:

Heat up some coconut oil in a frying pan. Sauté your mushrooms and your white onion/shallots for a few minutes until softened. Add your grated cauliflower and your chopped green onions. Sauté for another 5 minutes. Kinnnnda looks like rice, right?

Step Three: 

Push all your veggies to the side perimeter of your pan (yes owning a wok would’ve came in handy here) to form a well. Crack your eggs and place inside the formed circle/well.

Step Four:

Next, just mix it all up! And you’ve got yourself some Cauliflower “Fried Rice”. Super good, allllmost tasted like the real thing, just a healthier version. I’ll take it and will make again for sure.
