Cauliflower Fried Rice


Nowadays, when I cook fried rice, I add grated cauliflower so that (1) I eat less rice and (2) I still get to taste some real rice when I eat Cauliflower Fried Rice

When I first came across Cauliflower Fried Rice and subsequently tried it, I liked it but I have since freed myself from a strict low carb diet after achieving my target. So now, I want some rice but not too much.


You know I eat a lot and there is no way that I could be satisfied with a small bowl of fried rice or half a plate of fried rice. When I eat, I eat!

So when I want to indulge in some good old fried rice at home, I mix half and half of rice and grated cauliflower. Not only do I reduce the amount of my carb intake, I get a good dose of veggies as well.


Since I can get fresh cauliflower from Jaya Grocer, I can make my low carb fried rice more often. Gone were the days when I would be deeply disappointed to find cauliflower with brown spots when I shop at my regular supermarket.

For anyone interested in Cauliflower Fried Rice but still want some rice, just use your favorite fried rice recipe and just substitute half the amount of rice with grated cauliflower. 

By the way, cutting down on carbs and the sweet stuff is very effective for fat loss. You don't have to sacrifice your carbs, just eat less and allow yourself a cheat day once a week. It worked for me. So if you find yourself in Damansara Uptown and see a fat auntie, that's not me. Not anymore. Wahahaha!!!

    1. I am sure you can because you won't even realize there is grated cauliflower in there if you weren't told. Yup, bacon makes everything taste better :) My willpower is not that great because I am starting to eat more carbs and I kept reminding myself not to get back to square one again!

  4. I've been wanting to try and cook this. I've been bought one cauliflower...but it ended up cooked as a vegetable dish instead. So lazy, me. Another time perhaps.

  5. This is good news to hear that Fat Aunty Hong Chee has hit her target now. You must be very shapely like Coca Cola bottle now and can participate in Mrs Malaysia 2018 now. Wait, I pass you the forms. You should beat Marie France Bodyline and open your own Ah Hong France Bodyline to teach the fatties to slim down by eating caulifower rice & 8 potato skins before walking around Starling in 8 circles to burn fats. So easy!

    I ate this Cauliflower Fried Rice before but they tasted like yummy cereals to me. I would rather starve myself or exercise like a mice over treadmills if I need to slim down to wear my skimpy slim fit pants again. I want to ask my lahling to make this Cauliflower Fried rice again using your recipe since nothing could make you feed me even a small mouthful.

  7. Cauliflower is my least favourite veggie. I heard of this cauliflower fried rice before but never try or taste it.

    This fried rice is a great substitute and good for vegan too.

    1. You won't detect the cauliflower if you did not know there were some in there :)

  8. Oh yeah.. how come I never thought of using half rice and half cauli? Thanks for the idea, PH.. I miss rice too and at the same time I also do not want to indulge so much on them... and eating cauliflower alone is like very 'saddening' and "unsatisfying" .. hahaha...
