Whole30 Cauliflower Chicken Fried Rice (Gluten Free Paleo Keto) – a fast, nutritious meal that tastes like take-out, but is free of soy and carbs!

For a quick, satisfying meal that is Whole30 compliant and family-friendly, I love this Cauliflower Chicken Fried Rice.  If you haven’t tried riced cauliflower yet, you are missing out!  Use it anytime you would normally make white rice for a healthy and practically unnoticeable swap.  The first time I made this, my kids gobbled it up without even noticing the rice switch-out!

This is a great way to get your take-out fix while still eating clean.  Although we love Asian food, we try to avoid take-out due to all the added sodium and MSG.  With a similar texture and mild flavor, cauliflower rice is perfect as a compliment to other ingredients and flavors.  In addition to using cauliflower in place of rice, this recipe calls for coconut aminos instead of traditional soy sauce to make this Whole30 compliant.  I am totally hooked on using coconut aminos everywhere I would normally use soy sauce.  This healthy swap still provides salty, rich flavor but without the soy and sodium.

To get dinner ready even faster, look for bagged cauliflower rice in the produce and frozen sections of your grocery store.  Or simply put chopped cauliflower in the food processor to make your own.  Either way, this meal can be on the table in under 20 minutes!

How to Make Whole30 Fried Rice

Begin by prepping your vegetables (green onion and carrots) and cauli rice (if needed)

Cook chicken (if not using pre-cooked chicken)

Saute veggies in avocado oil

Next add the cauli rice, garlic, and ginger

Lastly, add the beaten egg, chicken, coconut aminos, and pepper

Cauliflower Chicken Fried Rice Variations

For a vegetarian option, just leave out the chicken.

Substitute small shrimp or pork for the chicken.

Serve topped with sriracha for a spicier version.

Add frozen green peas in the final couple minutes of cooking (for non-Whole30).
