If any of you know me well from my Instagram profile, then you know I don’t have the best relationship with veggies 😉 In all my life I have never been a big veggie eater, and I have tried to like them I promise! I do eat some, but it’s pretty limited.. I kept seeing cauliflower rice popping up on my Instagram account and while I was skeptical I thought I would give it a go. I am not a fan of cauliflower on it’s own but I do thoroughly enjoy it in a blended soup. When I was in my 20’s I had a roommate that would make me the best bacon fried rice and I swear I could eat bowl after bowl of it. So I thought if I am going to try this cauliflower version out then I might as well make the most of it, and one way to get me to eat a vegetable would be adding bacon 😉 Now I am not going to lie to you, to me it does not taste like rice, however to my surprise and delight it was amazing! I gobbled up a huge bowl and I will definitely be making more versions of this! 🙂

    I have never tried cauliflower, but recently have seen so many different recipes with using cauliflower as a substitute for many different things. I really have been wanting to try it, but I am a little scared. I am very picky. How is the texture? I’ve heard that it takes on any flavor you add to it. Have you found this to be true?

      Ok so I am not a veggie eater lol.. I too was VERY skeptical.. I was like “ok really this is going to taste like rice”?? I won’t say it tasted exactly like rice but none the less it was awesome.. and that is coming from a very picky eater!!! 😉

    I am rating this a 5-star because I made this yesterday from memory (I’m not as young as I used to be) and only used 2 slices of the Oscar Meyer center-cut bacon. I ate the entire pan of it over the course of the afternoon and evening. I can just imagine how good it will be with the correct number of slices of BACON. haha!

    Also, I love veggies.

      Hi Terri.. I am so glad you like it 🙂 And yes you can eat the whole bowl guilt free.. I am not a big veggie eater but I loved this.. and more bacon is awesome 🙂

  3. So you used 4 cups of the cauliflower rice? I’m asking because I will probably be buying the cauliflower already “riced”.

      HI Patricia, I did not really measure, just a spoonful and enough to cover a bit of your frying pan 🙂

  5. Also added 1/2 cup diced onion, 1/2 cup diced celery, and 1/2 cup sliced button mushrooms.a ” dash” of Chinese 5-Spice seasoning … Sauté and add in cauliflower to cook an additional few minutes to cook cauliflower and blend flavors.
