The Best Low Carb Fried Rice
After switching to clean eating to lose weight, I sure have missed Chinese takeout. We would get it once a month. Fried rice was always my favorite.
Now, I can make it at home with all clean keto + whole30 ingredients and it tastes JUST as good! I’m serious! This is seriously the best low carb fried rice.
Is Soy Sauce Whole30 + Keto?
No, soy sauce is not whole30 because it contains soy. Instead, this fried rice is flavored with coconut aminos, which is a soy sauce swap out made from the sap of coconut trees. Coconut aminos are whole30 compliant.
Yes, soy sauce is keto friendly! If you don’t have any issues with soy, you can definitely use soy sauce to flavor this instead.
Cauliflower Fried Rice with Chicken
For protein, this recipe uses chicken + eggs, which is my favorite. But you could really use whatever protein you have on hand: shrimp, pork, or even just egg.
For veggies, my favorite combo to use is carrot, zucchini, onion + green onions. But feel free to use whatever veggies you have on hand. Other great options: celery, mushrooms, green beans, yellow squash, brussels sprouts, etc.
Cauliflower fried rice is one of my favorite meals to meal prep. It tastes just as delicious the next day! Plus, in a pinch, this still tastes great cold if you aren’t able to reheat it. And is safe to keep at room temperature for a few hours if you’re on the go.
This cauliflower fried rice freezes beautifully! It’s so nice to have in the freezer to be able to heat up a quick meal in just 10 minutes.
Even better is that you can reheat it straight from frozen if you forgot to thaw it overnight!
