Fried Cauliflower Rice

Simple, easy, and healthy fried cauliflower rice cooked in a skillet. A great side dish for chicken, beef, seafood, plant-based protein, or stir-fry vegetables. You can also use this low-carb rice to replace regular rice to make fried rice or pilaf.

This cauliflower rice is a very simple dish, yet very comforting and versatile. You won’t need a recipe to make it, once you know the basic of it. You just need to experiment with the seasoning to create different flavors.

 Fried Cauliflower Rice

There are several ways to make it; microwaving, roasting, or stir-frying. By far microwave is the easiest, and healthiest way to cook the cauliflower rice but stir-frying still my favorite method as it gives a lovely nutty flavor.

Fried Cauliflower Rice


  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Remove the cauliflower outer leaves and chop into smaller chunks. Add cauliflower into a food processor and pulse for about 15 to 20 seconds, or until it resembles the grains of rice. Don’t over process and work in batches.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped garlic and stir fry for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Stir in the cauliflower and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until cauliflower rice begins to soften. Season fried cauliflower rice with salt and black pepper, mix well.
