Cauliflower Fried Rice – Keto, low carb, Paleo

I love fried rice. Fried rice does not love me back. The rice causes inflammation in my joints and leaves me feeling too full and groggy. It is never worth it to eat the rice. This recipe uses finely chopped cauliflower that is seasoned like fried rice. My family happily eats it all the time in the place of rice. I use green giant frozen pre-chopped cauliflower for speed and ease of clean up.

Pair this delicious keto recipe with a marinated London Broil or Chinese Ketchup Chicken. Don’t forget to check out my Keto Chinese roundup here!
