Easy Cauliflower Fried Rice
Thanks to Green Giant® for sponsoring this post and helping me to create this delicious Easy Cauliflower Fried Rice.
This Easy Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe is super delish, full of veggie goodness and packed with protein. It comes together in less than 20 minutes and is completely customizable. Go vegetarian or add chicken, fish, shrimp, you name it!
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
Loaded with flavor
Packed with veggies + protein
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!
Easy Cauliflower Fried Rice
- 4 teaspoons sesame oil, divided
- 1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
- 2 large cloves garlic pressed or minced
- 24 oz Green Giant® Riced Cauliflower Medley, 2 bags
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes omit if you don't want it spicy
- 2 beaten eggs
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari, if gluten free
- 2 tablespoons sliced green onions
- 1/2 - 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- Heat 2 teaspoons sesame oil in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add the onion and garlic and stir fry until tender and fragrant, about 5 minutes.
- Add the cauliflower, 2 teaspoons sesame oil and seasonings; stir fry quickly to cook the cauliflower to a soft (but not mushy) texture.
- Make a well in the middle, turn the heat down, and add the eggs. Stir gently and continuously until the eggs are fully cooked. Stir in the soy sauce and green onions just before serving. Garnish with lime juice and cilantro.

I’m New to this Cauliflower ANYTHING….But I tried this recipe it was Great by itself and even more satisfying when I added Shrimp 🍤 😋 ☺ thanks for this Easy but delicious recipe 😋 😊 ☺ 😜
So happy to hear you enjoyed! Shrimp is a GREAT addition!
Cant wait to try this! Do i cook the cauliflower according to the package instructions in the microwave first or add it to the pan frozen?
You can just add it into the pan frozen. Enjoy!
Quick and good! I used plain riced cauliflower, so I added frozen mixed vegetables to the pan at the same time. I also added extra egg, and shrimp, for added protein.
Sounds great! So glad you enjoyed and thanks so much for taking time to comment!
We huge followers of deep-fried rice though we’ve never ever attempted cauliflower rice prior to. It is likewise a brand-new recipe. It looks so scrumptious! I will certainly need to give this a try!
What a delicious twist on a classic! Pinning and trying next week!
I LOVE this idea. I can’t wait to give it a try. Cauliflower is so great at taking on different flavor profiles.
I LOVE fried rice but had never tried it with cauliflower before! A new addition to my list!
That looks so good. I love the new variety! I have pureed, mashed, baked, steamed but never riced cauliflower. I can’t wait to try this! Thanks for the coupon!
I love that youve done here! Whats typically not at all healthy has gotten a great makeover! I love that!
I love rice sides with my meals. This one looks yummy and like something I could definitely do.
Oh my, this is perfect! I love using cauliflower in anything so this would be a great addition to my sweet orange chicken!
I’ve yet to try cauliflower rice! This looks fantastic- what a great twist on fried rice 🙂
So convenient to have cauliflower riced already. Makes prep a snap and boy does this cauliflower fried rice look good!
Sounds delicious. I haven’t yet seen these in my grocery store. I’ll be keeping my eye out. I love a good shortcut!
This sounds delicious! We love fried rice but this is so much healthier!
We are big fans of fried rice though we’ve never tried cauliflower rice before. It looks so delicious! We must try this soon.
This looks so good! It is also a new recipe, I would never think to put cauliflower in fried rice. I will have to give this a try!
I have never tried cauliflower rice before but I bet it’s delicious as fried rice. That is something I’m going to need to try out!
I made cauliflower rice once and it was such a pain! This looks so much better.
This looks good. I love the idea of cauliflower rice (I don’t think my husband will know it’s there!) but slicing and chopping all that cauliflower doesn’t really interest me. I love that Green Giant has already done the work for me. Going to look for this today! Thanks!
This sounds so healthy and easy! We need to try it this week
This looks like a delicious side dish!
I am the biggest fan of making cauliflower fried rice so good indeed! It’s my way of making low cal Chinese meal my kids eat i all up
