Fried rice is a classic, flavor-packed side dish, but it definitely isn't keto-friendly. Just one serving of fried rice can kick you out of ketosis, but luckily, there are alternatives! This fried rice recipe uses cauliflower instead of traditional grain rice to pack all of the flavor and texture of traditional, fried rice, just without the carbs.
This recipe does not call for higher-carb vegetables (like carrots or peas), as many other fried rice recipes do. If you have a high carbohydrate allowance, you can add in moderate amounts of these vegetables, still insuring you don't go over your carb limit.
