I’m ba-ack from vacation!! It was so good to get away and have fun, clear my schedule, disconnect (minus posting photos… obvi) and to experience new places. I’ll get into more details on another post since I was so inspired for new recipes I’ll be testing out!! In the meantime, I hit the ground running once I came back to meal prep and get back on my feet. For some reason I was craving pineapple and one of my favorite ways to eat pineapple is mixed with savory flavors. I stumbled on some beautiful cauliflower at my local market and went to town making a ‘fried rice’ with the pineapple!! What a perfect batch recipe to make… and you can keep it in the fridge, ready to match with your protein of choice or greens, whatever you’d like. This is definitely making it’s way into more of my meal prep marathons!! Plus it’s so easy.
Do you love pineapple fried rice? You won’t miss the real rice here, cauliflower rice is even easier since you won’t have to soak it, boil it and pray you don’t make it overly sticky or burned – simply cut it into florets, zip it in a food processor and sauté! Voila. Plus it’s a lower carb option that will still keep you full. SCORE.
I hope you try it and can easily fit it into meal prep for lunches or sides to your dinner… I also wish I had more leftover, but my husband found my batch tupperware stash and demolished it!! Yes, that’s right – it’s husband approved. If you eat meat, and want to mix some in the rice instead of on top… ham or bacon would be so good to go Hawaiian style! And if you’re not vegan, try adding in some egg for protein, the toasted cashews I top this with is also packed with protein so you have so many options to square out this meal even more. Enjoy!!
Hope you enjoy!

This looks delicious! I am making it tonight. I noticed in your pictures your rice has cilantro in it, did you purposefully leave it out of the recipe?
Yay! Hope you liked it. I used cilantro as more of a garnish- good catch!
