Quick Pineapple Paleo Fried Cauliflower Rice {with extra Protein}



  • 3 cup cauliflower rice (about a small head of cauliflower). See notes for how to make this.
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots mix
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 3 tbsp tamari sauce (gluten free)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple (diced). Keep a tbsp or two of juice for later.
  • 2/3 cup chopped green onion
  • red pepper flakes
  • Optional 3 oz gluten free spicy or sweet jerky (beef, turkey, or bison). This is optional but a great PROTEIN booster!
  • Black pepper/sea salt to taste


  1. First make sure your veggies and pineapple are all chopped. If you are using frozen carrots and peas then no need to chop those. For the cauliflower rice, just chop into sections with knife first then pulse in food processor or blender a few times until “riced” texture forms. pulse for 1 or 2 seconds each time.
  2. If you are using jerky, go ahead and cut that into smaller pieces.
  3. In a small bowl, beat your eggs and set aside.
  4. Next Heat a medium skillet or wok on medium high heat.
  5. Add in your cauliflower rice, peas/carrots, sesame oil, eggs, and garlic.
  6. Stir around for a 2-3 minutes until coated.
  7. Next add in your tamari sauce, pineapple, and jerky (if using).
  8. stir fry for another 2 minutes then add your onion last.
  9. Place on medium to medium high heat until everything is coated and hot.
  10. Add in a few tbsp of pineapple juice if you want it more sweet.
  11. Mix again then plate or place in serving bowl.
  12. if there is any sesame/tamari/pineapple juice left in the skillet or wok, then pour that on top of your bowl before serving.
  13. Top with crushed red pepper.
  14. Black pepper/sea salt to taste if desired.


You can easily make this vegetarian without the jerky, but it does give it a nice taste and texture. Not to mention extra protein!

To make Cauliflower Rice chop your cauliflower head in half and cut off stems. Place half in a food processor or blender and pulse until it’s “riced.” Then do the other half. Then you have raw cauliflower rice to use for the fried rice.

If you want a softer rice, simply place your raw cauliflower rice in a microwave safe bowl with 1 tbsp water and steam it slightly for about 45 second to 1 minute. Then use in recipe. Both ways works, it’s just preference for how “al dente” you like your rice.
