I love chicken fried rice so much that I honestly could live on this dish alone, especially when preparing it using my favorite chicken fried rice recipe. While I love rice, I try to limit the amount of refined grains and starches in my diet. Using cauliflower is a great substitute for some recipes asking for potatoes or rice as it can be mashed, chopped, and even tastes great roasted.
