Over the years, I have enjoyed using Cauliflower rice as a substitute for so many high calorie, higher fat dishes. The first dish I ever made when cauli rice was becoming all the rage was Cauliflower “fried rice”. Today you can even buy it as a complete meal without needing to gather all the individual ingredients, which is a huge help during the busy weekday hustle.

No matter how you want to make your fried rice, there is a little secret at the end to crisp up the cauli rice. The biggest complaint I get, is…. the dish comes out mushy!!!! No one likes mushy rice!


So no matter how you make your cauliflower fried rice for a lower carb meal, here is the hot divalicious tip!

When your dish is complete, turn up the fire on your pan to high and add a little extra oil of choice. Let your mixture sit, then flip and chop and do this for 3-5 minutes. Take off heat and serve with a lean protein or veggie of choice or both!


Publix, throw away the package inside, add your own soy sauce and sesame oil
