Organic Gluten Free Cauliflower Fried Rice

My first Gluten Free Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

I don’t know about you, but I love rice and chinese fried rice isn’t the exception.  However, we all know that the real deal is fried in unhealthy oils, possibly contains added sugars, thickeners and all sorts of not so healthy ingredients.   Additionally, white rice is not a low glycemic index friendly meal– for that reason we rarely eat it at home.  When I do make rice for the family occasionally, it is a mix of wild/wholegrain/organic brown rices that I get from wholefoods; it is amazing!. So, since I miss it I figured I would give cauliflower fried “rice” a shot.  I went searching for a good recipe all over and found an awesome one from Family Freshmeals recipe   that definitely enticed me to make this substitute for rice dish (Thank you Corey).

I must say this was cauliflower fried rice was delicious, guilt free, has a low glycemic index, and best of all the family liked it.  However, I made some slight modifications.   For example, I was aiming for gluten free, so I didn’t use the conventional soy sauce as you can see in the pictures.  I used Organic-Gluten Free Tamari sauce instead.  Also, I decided to use coconut oil instead for some good fats and antioxidants and  to develop that androgenic metabolism (source)

Update:  Turns out that Tamari contains soy sauce (duh, it is written in huge letters on the very top) I think next time they should put a billboard sign next to it at the store.    On a serious note, we go out of our way not to use anything soy.  As we all know Soy protein is difficult to digest, contain high levels of Phytic  that cause less absorption of nutrients, disrupts hormones such as the thyroid and mimics estrogen due to its phytoestrogens.    That being said,  I have swapped Tamari sauce for Coconut Aminos, but you are welcome to use either one.   There you have it.  A delicious, nutritious, filling cauliflower fried rice recipe .

Organic Gluten Free Cauliflower Fried Rice


  • 2 cups of raw grated organic Cauliflower
  • 1 cup of Organic carrot-peas mix thawed out
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup red onions
  • 1/2 cup thinly shredded cabbage
  • 3-4 tbs Coconut Aminos Gluten Free Tamari Sauce (see note)
  • 2-3 tbs Organic Coconut oil
  • 2 Free range-organic eggs or (4 Egg whites)
  • 3. Pastured ground sausage or a protein of your choice


  1. In a small pan add 1 tsp of coconut oil and cook sausage, set aside.
  2. In a large stainless steel Wok or large pan add remaining coconut oil and saute garlic and onion in coconut oil on medium/high heat until they look golden in color.
  3. Add peas/carrots mix, cabbage and cook for about 3 minutes.
  4. Next add Califlower, Coconut Aminos and Scrambled eggs.
  5. Stir for a few minutes to make sure all ingredients are incorporated well.
  6. Serve with your favorite protein or just by itself.
  7. This recipe calls for pastured organic sausage, but you can add a protein of your choice or to keep it strictly vegetarian just add your favorite vegetables.


I used Gluten free Tamari sauce in the original recipe without realizing it contains soy. I avoid soy at all costs. If you do as well, you can use Coconut Aminos instead as I will in the future.

Also a wok works best as it is easier for stirring but you can use a pan deep enough like one to make stir fry.
