Hawaiian Fried Cauliflower "Rice"

This is a lower-carb alternative to fried rice with a Hawaiian twist that's sure to please any palate!



  • 1 1" (2.5-cm) piece fresh gingerroot, peeled
  • 2   garlic cloves
  • 2   green onions
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil
  • 6 oz. (175 g) low-sodium deli ham, diced
  • 10 oz. (284 g) cauliflower, riced (3 cups/750 mL) (*see cook’s tips)
  • 2   carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 cup (250 mL) frozen peas
  • 2   eggs (or 3 egg whites)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) canned pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) reduced-sodium soy sauce


  1. Grate the ginger with the Adjustable Zester to measure 1 tbsp (15 mL) and press garlic with the Garlic Press into a small bowl. Thinly slice the green onions and add white bottoms to the bowl. (Reserve the green tops for garnish.)
  2. Heat the oil in the 12" (30-cm) Brilliance Nonstick Weeknight Skillet over medium-high heat for 1-3 minutes. Add the ham and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove the ham and set aside.
  3. Add the ginger, garlic and green onions to the skillet. Cook and stir for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add the cauliflower, carrots, and peas. Cook and stir for 2-3 minutes.
  4. In the 1-cup (500 mL) Silicone Prep Bowl, beat the eggs. Push the vegetable mixture to the outsides of the skillet to create a well in the middle. Add the beaten eggs to the middle; let the eggs sit for 10 seconds to start cooking. Break the eggs to scramble until fully cooked and then stir into the "rice" mixture.
  5. Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the pineapple, ham, and soy sauce. Garnish with reserved green onion.

Cook's Tips:

You can "rice" the cauliflower using the Manual Food Processor or Flex+ Multi-Prep Set using the food processor attachment.

 Try this recipe with cooked chicken, tofu, or shrimp instead of ham. 
Don’t let the cauliflower stalks go to waste! Steam or microwave them in a little water until they're tender. Mash with Mix ‘N Masher and add your favorite stir-ins to create a healthy alternative to mashed potatoes.
