Curried Cauliflower Rice

I want to share this simple, 6-ingredients cauliflower rice (with sauteed tofu) with you all. It’s a one-pot dish and a great alternative to fried rice. Ready in just under 20 minutes.

Note: I learned a thing or two while testing this recipe. 🙂

  1. A generous amount of oil is a must so as to properly sautee riced cauliflower. This recipe might not taste best if you’re going oil-free.
  2. Make sure you’re continuously stirring and cooking the cauli rice. The aim is to make a final dish that tastes nothing like cauliflower.
  3. It’s important to use a good quality curry powder with all the mainstream Indian spices. The one I used had 12 different spices – from coriander to cardamom.

I love peas in my normal fried rice, so I used it here..and it came out wonderful.

Let’s go!

  • Process cauliflower in a food processor. Set aside.
  • Set a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add oil.
  • Once it's hot, add tofu. Saute on all sides - until golden.
  • Turn down the heat to low. Then add curry powder + salt + pepper. Stirring continuously, cook for 30-40 seconds (make sure the spices don't burn).
  • Add frozen (and thawed) peas + riced cauliflower. Turn up the heat to medium. Stir-cook for 10-12 minutes, or until cauliflower is nicely sauteed (do a taste test - make sure it isn't raw and 'crunchy'). You can also turn up the heat to high and roast for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously.
  • Add lemon juice + cilantro. Mix well and cook for 1 minute. Turn off the heat. Serve hot.
