Cauliflower Fried Rice with Ham



For a little more than a month, my boyfriend and I have been eating a Paleo lifestyle for about 90% of the time. I love knowing that I am putting healthy food into my body. I’m so busy and eat out a lot so plans that require counting calories, measuring food, etc, do not work for me. I work at a school with a dining hall and teachers are expected to eat in it, so its almost impossible to be accurately measuring and counting calories and/or macros which is why I love the Paleo lifestyle.

I also have been having a lot of fun finding all new ways to cook and hope you enjoy trying some of these recipes as well!

This Easter, I made a 9 pound ham for my boyfriend and I, knowing we’d have a lot of leftovers so I decided to make a cauliflower fried rice with ham. Looking forward to your comments and reviews!


  • Diced Ham –> I didn’t measure how much I used, but basically filled the bottom of the wok with the ham. I do wish I added more though. We had left over ham, but ham steak would work as well.
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1 – 2 tbsp sesame oil (I used enough to cover all the veggies)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Small red onion – diced
  • 1 cup carrots – diced
  • Any other veggies you want! I added broccoli to mine
  • 3 – 5 scallions – sliced
  • 3 – 5 tbsp of Liquid Aminos or similar (I did not measure and just covered the food, which ended up being too salty)
  • Olive oil or similar



  1. Cut the cauliflower and use a food processor to make cauliflower rice. Set aside. If you don’t have a food processor (and I don’t), I recommend getting Pampered Chef’s handheld blender! Works wonders and so much smaller and cheaper!
  2. Heat oil in a large pan or wok. Add onions, scallions, and veggies. Then add the sesame oil. Depending how many veggies you use, you may want to add more or less of the sesame oil. Cook for 5 minutes or until veggies are tender.
  3. Add two eggs and cook all together, stirring frequently, until eggs are cooked
  4. Add cauliflower rice and ham. Mix all together.
  5. Add liquid aminos and stir all together and then cook for 8 – 10 minutes until everything is warm stirring occasionally

  1. What is liquid aminos? I want to try this because cauliflower never seems to get all used in my house. Thanks Carolyn. Keep em coming. Nice blog.
