Vegetable Fried Cauliflower Rice

Just like the title says, this Vegetable Fried Cauliflower Rice is a veggie packed version of the takeout favorite, fried rice! All the flavors you love from the traditional dish, but with so many veggies.

I use a mixture of fresh and frozen vegetables in this dish. This is a recipe that is very versatile. Use whatever veggies you have on hand or are looking to use up. I almost always have some kind of frozen partially used bag in the freezer. You could certainly use regular white or brown rice rather than the cauliflower rice. It will cook and taste the same! I often like to do a half and half mixture. Erik isn’t a huge cauliflower fan so if I mix it in some brown rice he doesn’t know any difference.

Delicious on it’s own as a light lunch, or add in some grilled chicken or pork for a full meal. I like to serve it with my Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs, yum!

Another bonus about this recipe, it’s make-ahead and freezer friendly, my favorite! I love a stocked freezer, it not only makes meal planning easier, but your weeknight meals take less time too. Something I almost always have on hand are my All Purpose Chicken Meatballs which is what I used in the Teriyaki Chicken Meatball recipe.

Here are a few of my other favorite Asian flavor inspired dishes:
