Simple Cauliflower Fried Rice

This low-carb version of fried rice is seriously the easiest meal to make – perfect for those busy working days. I’ve whipped this up in less than 15 minutes. Serve with a fried or scrambled eggs if desired, or mix in some microwavable rice if you’d like more carbs. But this was super filling and satisfying without the extra carbs!
