Cauliflower can do no wrong — you can already use it to make low-carb versions of pizza crust, alfredo sauce, and even oatmeal. This cauliflower fried rice is just one more way to take advantage of its fiber and micronutrients in an easy, one-pot meal. While this recipe uses bacon and an array of veggies, you can easily trade in your favorite pastured meats, “green-zone” produce, and anti-inflammatory spices.

Serve cauliflower fried rice with flavorful sides like beef stir fry, cassava egg rolls, or chicken keto ramen — or keep it simple and toss a pastured ribeye steak on top.

This takeout classic takes only minutes to make: With bacon and warm spices, cauliflower fried rice makes the perfect low-carb meal for busy nights.
