This Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe is paleo & whole30 approved!! Super quick to throw together - click through for a video!

This Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe has been a long time coming!  We made this all the time, like once or twice a week last fall… only then it wasn’t this Whole30 version.  We used tamari most of the time and a pea, corn and carrot mixture for the veggies. But thanks to the amazing Coconut Aminos from Coconut Secret… a whole30/ paleo version was made possible!  And let me tell you, it is just as good if not better than before!  The folks at Coconut Secret use Coconut Sap to create this super flavorful seasoning sauce and the only ingredients are Certified Organic Coconut Tree Sap and Sun Dried, Mineral Rich Sea Salt!  Which is a BEAUTIFUL thing when are banned from eating most condiments and sauces.  I have been using the stuff on everything and highly recommend you going to pick some up or just ordering some online from my fave Thrive Market! It’s way cheaper on Thrive than anywhere else I have found so get your membership and you’ll save big.  Anywho this “fried rice” is such a great base for all kind of yummy protein  and you can have a nice big bowl with no guilt… I mean, it’s a bowl of veggies!  In this recipes I make my own cauliflower rice but if you can find pre made… absolutely no judgement.  I love having the Trader Joe’s frozen riced cauliflower on hand just in case I ever need it quick or just don’t feel like pulling out the food processor!  This whole dish comes together so quickly though… you can tell in the video I made below!

Love these dish towels from Trader Joes! 🙂

Cauliflower Fried Rice {Whole30}


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ¼ cup chopped onions
  • 1 head of cauliflower chopped, about 4 -5 cups
  • 1 cup chopped green beans
  • ½ cup chopped carrots
  • 2 eggs
  • salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos, or soy sauce/ tamari if not whole30!


  • Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and let that get warm, about 20 seconds. Then add chopped onions and let cook for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in your cauliflower and let cook for about 5 minutes or until it starts to get tender.
  • Place your chopped green beans in a microwaveable bowl with a splash of water. Microwave them on high for 2 minutes. This will cook them just perfectly so the process moves quicker. Pour out the water and green beans & carrots to the cauliflower mix and stir to combine. Make a well in the middle of the pan by pushing the cauliflower mix against the sides.
  • In a small bowl mix eggs with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Pour egg mixture into the well of the pan and stir them occasionally, trying not to combine with the cauliflower mix. Once eggs are scrambled, stir them together with the cauliflower mix.
  • Add in ½ teaspoon pepper, ½ teaspoon garlic powder and coconut aminos. Season to taste with salt if necessary. Stir to combine and season more to taste if necessary! Enjoy!

    This was a hit in our house tonight. Served it with the yummy orange chicken meatballs. It’s my first day starting the Whole30 again, and this time around it’ll be much easier with fantastic recipes like these! Can’t wait for leftovers at lunch. 🙂

  2. Looks like a great recipe, but I’m on a strict diet and you do not note the calories, carbs, protein or portion. Would be nice if you add these to your recipes so I could use them.

      1. What are the nutritional facts on this recipe? And what are they for the orange chicken? Are they both 4 servings?

  3. Hi there! This is an excellent recipe! I have a friend who is having a baby soon and she is a vegetarian so I would love to make this as a freezer meal for her to pull out and heat (or cook) whenever she is ready to. Do you have any pointers on how to prepare this as a freezer meal? Some veggies do not freeze well, or have to be partially cooked beforehand.. and I do not really know anything about that haha! So any help on what all I should combine and what cooking/if any I should do in advance before freezing it for her would be great!

  4. For the Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos, will raw coconut aminos work? I cannot find the original stuff anywhere in my town and I’m making the recipe in two days.
    Also for the amount does all 1/4 cup and the 1 tablespoon go in at the same time there at the end?

    1. I haven’t heard of raw coconut aminos before! Any brand of coconut aminos work though! and yes all of those go in at the end!

    Whole 30 game changer. I bought a frozen cauliflower mix, microwaves it and then finished it in the pain. So cheap and so good
