  • Start your fried rice by roughly chopping the cauliflower then processing in batches in a food processor or chopper till finely chopped to the size of rice grains, but not pureed.
  • Once the other ingredients are chopped begin the rice. Put a wok over a full flame and heat well. Add the oil and then onion, bacon and celery. Stir fry until soft. Add the red pepper, corn and toss till hot. Add the cauliflower rice and keep stir frying on high. Beat the eggs together with a drop of soy.
  • Push the rice aside and pour in the egg leaving till nearly set. Add the rest of the soy sauce and toss all together with the "rice", eggs and vegetables till well combined. Add salt to taste. Mix through the chopped herbs just before serving
  • Serve with a fried eggs, cucumber and chopped chilli's in soy sauce.


If adding chicken cook it in the wok first then add back in as you are tossing the rice
