15-Minute Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice

15-Minute Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice

Forget takeout. Make Cauliflower Shrimp Fried Rice at home using riced cauliflower, carrots, peas, onions, garlic, and coconut aminos in just 15 minutes!

I’ll never forget the first time I tried cauliflower rice. I cried. It was so gross. I didn’t understand why everyone loved it so much.

You have to understand, I didn’t grow up eating veggies. That was not a staple in my Cuban household.

Cauliflower rice?! What?! That would be an insult in my parent’s kitchen. Read more here.

Experimenting in the kitchen today, I attempted to make a simple shrimp fried rice (one of my faves) without the massive amounts of sodium.

I used cauliflower rice instead of regular rice but thanks to the coconut aminos – I didn’t cry!

Coconut aminos, which is a great soy sauce substitute, was delicious. It made the cauliflower rice so flavorful.

 

Chinese takeout is a fave of mine but I hate how I feel when I eat it. The next day, I’m so bloated from all the sodium and tired from the MSG.

It’s no fun.

So I’m happy to have a healthier alternative like this Cauliflower Shrimp Fried “Rice”.

As I always do, I tried to simplify the steps as much as possible so you can make everything in a cast-iron skillet.

Less dishes, more happiness – am I right!?

I gotta say, I was IMPRESSED with this cauliflower rice. Sure, it’s not white rice but it sure does come close! I think my parents would actually accept it in their house now. Or I’ll make them like it. Ha! ;)

Seriously though, A+ for this meal!
