But really…..how could cauliflower taste just like my beloved fried rice? 

I am happy to report that this Cauliflower Fried Rice taste absolutely like fried rice!!! Both my girls are a big fan of fried rice. They didn’t blink an eye when I put a bowl of this cauliflower fried rice in front of them.  Little D ate her whole bowl and asked for more! Have fun mixing in your favorite vegetables and proteins. My favorite so far has been to add in some eggs and egg whites and a ton of veg.
