Thai Cauliflower “Fried Rice” with Coconut

This Thai Cauliflower “Fried Rice” with Coconut recipe is vegetarian yet high in protein and keto friendly.

Thai Cauliflower "Fried Rice" with Coconut
Cauliflower that has been pre-chopped into tiny rice-sized bits is my favorite new food product. It's almost indistinguishable from real rice in recipes, yet contains significantly less carbs, so it's perfect for grain-free and Paleo diets.
If you want a little more protein just add about a half cup of diced cooked pork or chicken.Trader Joe's makes both fresh and organic frozen varieties, but if you can't find pre-riced cauliflower, pulse chopped cauliflower in a food processor for the same results.  Be sure to use gluten free soy sauce (tamari) if you are sensitive.



  • Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Stir fry the riced cauliflower until it starts to brown, about two minutes.
  • Add the sesame seeds and chopped onion and continue to stir fry for a minute or two more.
  • One at a time, stir in the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, Sambal Oelek and Sriracha.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and stir in coconut milk, cilantro, basil and Thai spice blend. Simmer until almost all of the liquid is absorbed.
  • Add the beaten egg, stir until well combined and cook for two minutes more.
  • Enjoy!
