You can make your own cauliflower rice but I prefer store-bought because it saves time and its coarse texture resembles more real rice than homemade. I swear my kids’ eyes were a size of a saucer when I told them it’s not real rice.

Make cauliflower chicken fried rice. Use ground chicken or finely chopped boneless chicken breast and saute first in a pan before adding other ingredients. Pork works the same way.

Make shrimp cauliflower fried rice by cooking diced raw shrimp first. Remove it onto a plate, follow the recipe and then add cooked shrimp back. If you use cooked shrimp, dice and add it at the end of cooking the recipe.

Make spicy cauliflower fried rice by adding a pinch of red pepper flakes or a few teaspoons of sriracha.
