How Do You Make Cauliflower Rice?

All you need to do is head over to our post on How To Make Better Cauliflower Rice! It will explain everything you need to know, plus our method for making cauliflower rice just a little bit better.

We like a larger texture to our cauliflower rice so that it doesn’t get mushy in your recipes. But if you like a finer texture you can do that easily too!

What Can You Substitute In This Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe?

Pretty much anything you want! We used a mild chicken sausage in this recipe but you can add ground beef, ground pork, chicken or turkey.

Even leftover turkey or leftover chicken would work. Ham? Yep. This fried rice recipe is pretty versatile! Use up what you have in your fridge for this fried rice.

Also the vegetables, we stuck with basic peas and carrots but anything would work! Broccoli, asparagus, cabbage, bok choy, fresh spinach or kale…again, use what you like and clean out the fridge!

We’ve even gone so far as to chop up leftover hard boiled eggs and throw them in this cauliflower fried rice instead of scrambling new eggs.
