Asian Cauliflower Fried Rice


According to the cookbook, this recipe serves six. However, if you're looking to enjoy it on its own for a meal, this recipe will feed four healthy appetites.

Paleo Fried Rice


  1. 3 slices bacon, crosscut into 1/4-inch pieces
  2. 1 medium cauliflower head, cut into uniform pieces
  3. 2 large eggs
  4. Kosher salt
  5. Freshly ground black pepper
  6. 2 tablespoons ghee (or fat of choice)
  7. 1 small yellow onion, minced
  8. 4 ounces cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  9. 1 (1-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated (about 1 tablespoon)
  10. 2 tablespoons coconut aminos [3]
  11. 1 teaspoon coconut vinegar [4]
  12. 1 teaspoon Paleo-friendly fish sauce (I used Red Boat Fish Sauce [5])
  13. 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  14. 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Once it crisps up, about 15 minutes, transfer the crunchy bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate with a slotted spoon.
  2. While you're crisping the bacon, toss the cauliflower into a food processor, and pulse until it's the size of rice grains. Pro tip: don't overdo it. We don't want liquid cauliflower.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs together with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the eggs in the hot bacon drippings, and fry up a thin egg omelet. Remove the omelet from the pan, slice it into ribbons, and set aside.
  4. Melt the ghee in the same skillet of medium-high heat, and add the onions along with a sprinkle of kosher salt and pepper. Once the onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes, throw in the sliced mushrooms. When the mushrooms are browned, add the grated ginger and stir for 30 seconds to incorporate.
  5. Add the cauliflower "rice," season with a bit more salt and pepper, and mix the ingredients together. Place a lid on the skillet, turn the heat down to low, and cook for about 5 minutes with the skillet covered. The "rice" is ready when it's tender but not mushy.
  6. Season with the coconut aminos, coconut vinegar, and fish sauce. Before serving, mix in the scallions, cilantro, omelet sliced, and reserved crispy bacon.
