Cauliflower Fried Bacon Dirty Rice | Healthy Fakeaway Recipe

Cauliflower rice is a gluten free and low carb way of enjoying rice dishes. It's not just rice that you can recreate with cauliflower, and I even once made a cauliflower garlic bread!

I have also made a cauliflower vegetable cous cous before, but never tired a cauliflower rice. I actually got a pre prepared packet of rice from Aldi, but most supermarkets now offer their own variations. 

I added loads of flavour and fried the rice, which really took away all 'cauliflower' taste. I was actually quite impressed with how 'un' cauliflower like it was.

If you like dirty rice, then this dish is petty similar. Instead of using beef mince, I used a little bit of crispy cooked bacon.

If you were just wanting to have a plane rice replacement, then all you need to do is microwave the pot and it's ready! It's much more simple than having to make it out of a cauliflower yourself.

I cooked the rice in the microwave before adding it to the frying pan, and also added an egg so it is similar to an egg fried rice from the Chinese.

With this dish you can really add as many and as much vegetables as you like. I used mushrooms, onions, peas, peppers and sweetcorn. The more colour you have in a dish, the better!
