This Whole30 Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice recipe is a Whole30 spin on a popular takeout dish, created especially for us by our longtime collaborator Laura Miner of Cook At Home Mom. It features a special ingredient: green peas, which are now Whole30 compliant. Click here to read more about this new Whole30 rule.
Whole30 Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice
1 large head cauliflower or 16 oz. bag riced cauliflower
1 lb. ground pork
2 tbsp sesame oil
3 green onions
2 cups frozen peas
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger (about 1/2 inch)
1/4 – 1/3 cup coconut aminos
1 tbsp sesame seeds
Salt & pepper to taste
PREP the Vegetables. Cut the cauliflower into bite sized pieces, removing any outer leaves and the large core. In batches, use a food processor or blender to pulse the pieces until broken down into grain sized pieces. Mince or grate the ginger. Dice the carrots. Thinly slice the green onions, separating the green pieces from the white pieces.
IN a large skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice, ginger, white onions, and carrots. Saute, stirring often, for about 8 minutes.
ADD the ground pork. Continue to cook together for about 5 minutes, breaking the pork apart as it cooks. Stir in the coconut aminos.
MAKE a well in the middle of the skillet and add the eggs. Gently scramble the eggs with your spatula or a fork as they begin to cook. Mix and incorporate the scrambled eggs into the rest of the cauliflower and pork mixture.
ADD the frozen peas to the skillet. Cook, stirring often, just until the peas are heated through, about 5 more minutes.
SEASON with salt and pepper, sliced green onions, and sesame seeds, and serve.
Tips from Laura
Choose a large skillet or wok for this recipe. If the contents begin to overfill your skillet, transfer half to a second skillet or cook it in batches.
Start with less coconut aminos. The saltiness of coconut aminos can vary depending on the brand you use, so it’s better to start with less and add more to taste if need be.
Save time by using riced frozen or fresh riced cauliflower. If using frozen, defrost and drain any extra liquid before cooking.
