Substituting riced cauliflower for rice trims calories and carbs in this veggie-packed dish. Use the vibrant flavors of traditional fried rice--ginger, scallions and tamari--to create a low-carb fried rice version of the classic take-out meal.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 tablespoon peanut oil in a large wok or skillet over high heat. Add scallions, ginger and garlic; cook, stirring, until scallions have softened, 30 to 40 seconds. Add bell pepper, snow peas, carrots and edamame; cook, stirring, until just tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer everything to a plate.

  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons peanut oil to the pan. Add cauliflower and stir until mostly softened, about 2 minutes. Return the cooked vegetables to the pan, along with cashews, tamari (or soy sauce) and sesame oil. Stir until well combined.


Tips: You can find riced cauliflower in the produce aisle or your supermarket, or you can prepare it yourself. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until it breaks down into rice-size pieces.

People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing ingredients.
