Egg Fried Rice Recipe

Ok so this is an egg fried rice recipe with a difference... there's no rice! The rice has been replaced with cauliflower so it is suitable for a paleo diet as well as being great for those following a gluten free diet. Plain cauliflower rice is delicious, but turning it into egg fried rice adds some extra nutritional  bulk as well as tasting fabulous.

Egg Fried Rice 

Cauliflower can be a bit hit or miss, especially if it's just been steamed or boiled. You really need to get creative with it as it is SUCH a great vegetable health wise. 

From the Cruciferous vegetable family,  cauliflowers are incredibly good for us being packed with vitamin C and other goodies; plus they are known to have several anti cancer properties as well as being good for heart health.

Cruciferous vegetables contain goitrogens which can interfere with thyroid hormone production, so there is some debate as to the wisdom of eating them raw. My personal opinion on the raw vs cooked argument is that cooked is preferable, and infinitely tastier!

Ingredients (serves 3-4)

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 onion
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 dsp coconut oil


  1. Wash and destalk the cauliflower then chop up into rice sized pieces. You could do this with a grater but a food processor is easier.
  2. Chop the onion.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan.
  4. Gently fry the onion until it starts to brown slightly.
  5. Throw in the cauliflower and fry for 5 minutes.
  6. In a bowl whisk together the eggs and add the salt and pepper (you might want to add in some herbs or spices - turmeric would make a nice yellow rice to go with a curry).
  7. Add the eggs to the cauliflower and onion.
  8. Stir gently every couple of minutes until cooked.
  9. Serve with your dish of choice - our favourite accompaniment is our coconut chicken curry recipe, we'd love to hear what your favourite is.
