But it's not rice

This vegetarian Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe is a great alternative to using rice. It is versatile and can be used in a lot of different dishes.

I had been wanting to try a cauliflower fried rice recipe for quite some time. I jumped on the cauliflower bandwagon when I tried this Crispy Orange Cauliflower Dish by Vegan Richa a few years ago. It is so damn good and to this day it is my favorite vegetarian and vegan recipe. Ever since then I have been fascinated how complex cauliflower can be and what a great meat substitute it is.

Disclaimer, I am not vegetarian but I do try to eat veggie with about 80% of my diet. This Cauliflower fried rice recipe is a great staple to have. 

Making this cauliflower fried rice dish was pretty easy and I would definitely try it again. I used carrots, peas, cabbage, spring onions and green beans. I happened to have these on hand at the house but you can change it up how you want. Mushrooms would be a nice addition as would tofu or any other protein.
