No Rice Fried Rice!


I got the inspiration for this recipe from Pete Evens. It is a smart way to substitute a high carb meal (rice ) into a healthier option.

Instead of using rice for the base you use cauliflower, it is really simple and you can add what you like. It is also a great meal when you have left over veges and you don’t know what to do with them. My kids eat it and they think its rice, win win!


1 full cauliflower with the florets broken off ready.

100 grams of ham, chicken or prawns. I used ham in this one.

1/2 a zucchini

1 onion

2 eggs

1/2 a  red capsicum

1 cup of mixed peas and corn

1 tablespoon of fish sauce

2 tables spoons of soy sauce

1 tablespoon of coconut oil, you can use sesame or olive oil to.


Place cauliflower into a blender or Thermomix, blitz in pulses until is rice texture.

Chop up all other ingredients finely.

Add onion and ham to wok or frying pan on medium heat, brown  for 2 mins and then scoop out and put to the side.

Place zucchini, capsicum and corn and peas into wok and cook for 1-2 mins.

Add the blitzed cauliflower to the wok stirring through.

Add the fish and soy sauce and stir through.

Add the onion and ham back to the wok.

While the mixture is cooking, place 2 eggs in a microwave bowl, whisk well then cook on high for 1 min 20 sec, once cooked remove and cut up then add to the mixture. Stir through gently.

Then that’s it, simply serve up and enjoy!
