You guuuuuuuys. So excited to share this deliciousness (recipe and new product) with you. We’re giving the traditional fried rice dish a major makeover today! Not that fried rice needs a makeover, but you know how we foodies do it… always changing and switching things up for something a little different and new. At least that’s what I like to do.
I’m already a huge fan of creating better-for-you fried rice meals. They can be so easy, quick and tasty, but a little heavy on the carbs. The veggie lover that I am, I had to recreate a little different version that includes an increase of veggies, includes plenty of protein, but with all of the classic flavors we adore.
Cauliflower is such a versatile vegetable and I’ve grown to love experimenting with it. One of my favorite things to do with this cruciferous vegetable is to use it in recipes to replace rice. Green Giant® has made that easier than ever!
If you’ve tried making cauliflower rice yourself, you know it can be messy and, honestly, a bit of a pain. Good news – The Green Giant® is back and so are veggies! With new Green Giant® Riced Veggies, you can swap it in for regular rice just by pouring out the contents of a package. Easy peasy! And Green Giant® Riced Veggies are made with 100% vegetables, so you can feel good about serving it to your family.
With this Easy Cauliflower Fried Rice meal, I completely cut out any regular rice product and went crazy with the veggies instead. Cauliflower, peas, carrots, green onion and cilantro tossed in sesame oil, soy sauce, lime juice and garlic. Full of flavor!!
You’re going to love this quick and easy meal idea! It’s

Entirely gluten free (with GF soy sauce)
And perfect for a night in
I made this dish and ate half, then reheated the leftovers the next day and I swear it got better! I love it when that happens. Hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did. Happy dining!
