Pork Cauliflower Fried Rice

Before making the transition to Paleo, fried rice was one of  my favorite dishes and I loved to make it at home and everyone (including my picky toddler) would eat it. It was one of the dishes I thought I would miss when I decided to follow the Paleo plan and when I found this recipe for Pork Cauliflower Fried Rice I couldn’t wait to try it.  I made a few changes and included the recipe below.  It was a hit with the whole family and something I will definitely make again!

Makes 2-4 servings

2 lbs. Cauliflower, cored and cut/broken into florets
6 Slices Bacon, sliced into 1/2″ pieces
1/2 Small Yellow Onion, finely minced
1 1/2 cups chopped brocoli (small pieces)
1 1/2 cups diced carrots
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1 tsp. minced Fresh Ginger
3 Eggs
1 T. Coconut Aminos
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  1. Steam cauliflower until fork tender (don’t let it get mushy). I used a pot and about 1″ of water and cooked for about 10 minutes.
  2. Drain water from cauliflower and transfer to a bowl (or back to drained pot). Mash with a fork or chop in a food processor (and then transfer to bowl), until it is rice-like in consistency.
  3. Add onions, garlic, ginger, brocoli, carrots, eggs, aminos, and sea salt to the cauliflower and mix to combine.
  4. Add bacon to a hot sauté pan and cook until browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. Do not drain.
  5. Once the bacon is browned, add the cauliflower mixture and stir to coat with bacon*.
  6. Continue to cook the “rice” mixture over medium-high without stirring for about 5 minutes, until browned.
  7. Stir the mixture and then continue to cook for another 5-10 minutes, until browned.
  8. Enjoy!
*You can add 1 T. coconut oil if you want a more crispy texture. The flavor is really good and will give you a more authentic texture.
