I have been craving Chinese food A LOT lately.  My typical go to is a loaded fried rice, I just love all the flavors and textures together in each bite.  On my KETO journey a traditional fried rice is not going to work but this KETO Loaded Fried Rice is perfection!

Making it KETO friendly

Obviously, as I said above, a traditional fried rice would not work on a KETO friendly menu, so to make it KETO friendly I am using cauliflower rice.  It has a very similar texture to traditional rice but with just a few carbs.  I also love it because it cooks up SUPER fast and will take on whatever flavor you throw at it. For instance check out this Mexican Cauliflower Rice and this Cauliflower Risotto.  

I also made sure to choose KETO friendly veggies.  I used a little bell pepper and onion for flavor and then used minced garlic, fresh ginger and brussels sprouts to really make this loaded to the max.  You could use any combo of veggies you wanted such as broccoli, cauliflower florets, asparagus or even eggplant, just make sure to adjust cooking time as needed.

Don’t forget the eggs

As in a traditional fried rice I added 2 eggs and scrambled them real quick towards the end.  I love the little extra bit of texture this adds to the dish and the color.  The egg also helps bind everything together giving it that “fried rice” feel.  

If you did not want to add it in you don’t have to, but I highly recommend it.

Protein of choice

For this go around I used chicken.  I love how quick it cooks and I also had it on hand which is always a plus.  Next time though I think I am going to sue shrimp and add it in at the very end when I add in the sprouts.  

You could also use pork or steak, just make sure and adjust cooking time as needed.

You could also leave the protein out all together and make it a side dish.
