Whole 30 Fried Rice
Updated: Mar 13
I LOVE fried rice & I wanted to bring you all a lighter version, packed full of veggies & flavor. I also have been wanting to get recipes to you all that can be thrown together in minutes throughout the week, as well as not hurt that wallet. This recipe contains frozen veggies, which I feel sometimes gets noses turned up at them! Yes, is the taste of fresh fruits & veggies undeniable? Absolutely, however frozen organic veggies do not come up short where health benefits are concerned. Frozen veggies are packed at their peak freshness & are a great substitute when that certain item are not in season etc.
Add protein to this recipe to create full meal, or eat as your meatless meal of the week!
This recipe is whole 30 approved, however, I do put the soy sauce that I prefer if you are not going Whole 30!
1 tsp Everything Bagel Seasoning
1 12 oz bag of frozen cauliflower rice
1 cup frozen mixed veggies ( carrots, peas, corn, green beans)
4 Brussel sprouts shredded
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 cup green onions
3 tsp sesame seed oil
3 tbsp coconut aminos for whole 30 or Tamari Gluten Free soy sauce
1 tsp honey (OMIT if you are using coconut aminos, it is sweeter)
Avocado Oil spray or olive oil (2 tbsp)
1. In a medium frying pan, pour out all of the cauliflower rice. If it froze in blocks, pound in the bag on the counter top until it is all broken apart before pouring into the pan. You do not need to add any oil to the pan yet. Turn on medium heat & move around with a spatula for the first 3 minutes.
2. Then add in minced garlic evenly over the top of the cauliflower rice & the mix in. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Then add in the mixed veggies & then the smoked & regular paprika, onion powder, chili powder & salt. Then mix until throughly combined. Cook for another 5 minutes. It should start to brown & you notice it browning on the pan, then start scrapping until it incorporates into the rice & the spray avocado spray generously at the bottom or 1 tbsp of olive oil.
3. Then push the mixture off to the sides of the pan, to where there is a well to add the eggs in. Spray on more time or a little bit more oil, then crack the 2 eggs in that spot. Do not start scrambling just yet. Let it cook for a minute, sprinkling EBB on top, then start scrambling in that spot. Scramble the eggs in the that spot until almost full cooked, then incorporate into the rice.
4. In a small bowl, add in the sesame seed oil, soy sauce of choice from above & then honey if adding it in. Whisk until throughly combined. Then pour onto the rice mixture & mix in with the spatula. Then add any more seasoning or sauce to taste! Then ENJOY!
PRO TIP : I keep it in the frying pan as long as I can do get it extra brown :)
