Rice has always been my go to. It pairs with almost anything and is so easy to make. Fortunately, you can substitute traditional rice with keto rice! And what’s better than keto rice? Fried rice! Lazy keto meals are the best and this keto friendly, low carb rice doesn’t take much effort to make.
This Keto Cauliflower Fried Rice only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and make. It’s perfect for wanting to cook a quick keto meal after a long day or having it as a side dish. I personally love making it for my lunch to bring to work and having leftovers for the next day. Sometimes I’ll even pair it with some chicken or shrimp for some extra protein!
