Weeknight Cauliflower Fried Rice

*This post may contain affiliate links, please see my disclosure here.  Thank you for your support!

Hey, friends!  How was your Wednesday?  I got summoned for jury duty, and it was a loonnnggggg day.  I did not get selected but was not dismissed until the very end, and then had a bit of a drive home.  It was interesting to see the legal system in action though, and I did get some good reading time in while waiting around.

Today I wanted to share another super fast meal idea, my weeknight cauliflower fried rice.  This is a 10-minute dish that is a perfect way to get extra veggies in.  It is one of the kids’ favorites.   I love things that make them want to eat veggies, so we have it pretty regularly.  It is great on its own, but you could also add some cooked chicken, tofu, shrimp or any other preferred protein.  It also makes a good side.  I made this not too long ago and served it with my Weeknight Egg Roll in a Bowl, and the whole family was full and happy.

Weeknight Cauliflower Fried Rice

Serves 2-3


  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 bag (12 oz) frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup frozen mixed vegetables (I was out of mixed veggies and just used frozen peas on the pictured batch)
  • 1 egg
  • 3-4 green onions, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2-3 tablespoons Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce, or coconut aminos, depending on your preferences)

Directions: Add sesame oil to a frying pan and heat on medium-high heat.  Add riced cauliflower and vegetables to pan.  Begin to stir and heat, adding garlic powder, onion powder, and ground ginger.  Continue to cook until heated through and beginning to brown slightly (about 8 or so minutes).  As it cooks, crack the egg into a bowl and beat.  Make a well in the middle of your pan, and pour the egg into this well.  Allow the egg to cook in the well for about a minute, then scramble and mix in with rest of ingredients.  Pour in the liquid aminos and add the green onions.  Mix thoroughly and serve.


Let me know if you give this recipe a try.

How is your week going so far?  Have you ever had jury duty?

  1. I could’ve use this recipe last night to make to enjoy with the stir fry I made! Next time I’ll have to try it 😉 It’s nice you didn’t get picked for jury duty and got some reading done. I’ve never been called for it and hopefully I didn’t just jinx myself!

    1. It would have gone great with stir fry, let me know how you like it! It is interesting to see the legal process in action, and there are lots of good lunch joints in the area. Hope you have a great day!

  2. Where do you get frozen riced cauliflower? I’ve never seen it!
    Love the idea of substituting the rice 🙂
    I’ve never had jury duty! Have you?!

    1. I recently started buying it at Costco, but would previously buy it at Trader Joe’s. I have seen it at several grocery stores, but it seems to be cheapest at TJs and Costco. I did serve on a jury once a few years ago. It was interesting for sure.

  3. Thank you for sharing! I made cauliflower rice just once and found that I had to cook it a while longer to get the consistency of the cauliflower just right. I made mine with some sweet potato on the side. I will definitely give this a try, (minus the egg for me 🙂 ) Have a great rest of the week!

    1. I have seen riced cauliflower with the other frozen veggies in most of the grocery stores in our area. Liquid aminos are a soy sauce alternative, so you can always use soy sauce as well. Thanks for visiting! Hope you have a good night.
