Easy Keto Cauliflower Fried Rice

This fried rice recipe is keto friendly because it's made from cauliflower.  Cauliflower is so versatile for keto recipes.  I'm honestly super excited about this fried rice because I miss my Asian food nights.  Since it's fried rice, it goes great with a beef or pork stir-fry.  It does take a little time to cook, but it's worth it.  Since it is on medium-high heat most of the cooking time, make sure to keep stirring and turning it over frequently so it does not burn.

You'll need a food processor for this recipe, or you can purchase chopped cauliflower at Whole Foods.  Sometimes I've seen it at regular grocery stores too.  Don't just set the food processor and leave it.  You only need to pulse the cauliflower a few times to get it to a good rice size.  If you just let it go you'll have cauliflower fried mush instead of rice 🙁

Instructions
  1. Heat large non-stick pan to medium heat. Do not add oil or butter until after cauliflower has cooked.
  2. Using food processor, chop cauliflower into small, rice size pieces. Use the pulse function and only pulse a few times to get rice consistency. Do NOT just start the chopping and leave it. You will not get a good consistency this way.

  3. Add the chopped cauliflower to the hot pan. Spread evenly and allow to cook at medium heat for 15 minutes. Turn up heat to medium-high for an additional 5 minutes to allow some browning of the rice.
  4. Add grass-fed butter while at med-high heat. Stir mixture quickly allowing butter to coat all cauliflower rice while it melts.
  5. Scramble eggs in a bowl. While still on med-high heat, add the egg mixture to the rice. Quickly and consistently stir and scramble rice/egg mixture until egg fully cooks.
  6. Heat on med-high until eggs are fully cooked and mixture looks not mushy.

  7. Turn down heat to medium. Add onion powder, salt and soy sauce, sprinkle around and stir vigorously to mix soy sauce uniformly into rice.
  8. Allow to continue cooking at medium heat until rice is crispy enough for you, about 5-10 minutes.
