How To Make Cauliflower Fried Rice
First, cook chopped onion, green pepper and shredded carrots in some oil on a large non-stick frying pan.
While vegetables are cooking, make regular (not fried) cauliflower rice by shredding raw cauliflower florets in a food processor (see my detailed instructions on how to make cauliflower rice).
Next, add the raw cauliflower rice to the vegetables on a frying pan. Season with soy sauce and pepper to taste.
Finally, make a well in the center of the frying pan and add two eggs there. Mix the eggs into the cauliflower fried rice and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes, or until everything is cooked through.
