Before I talk about this kimchi fried rice, we need to set the record straight. And I’m here to do it. So if you have been living in a world where your cauliflower rice is soggy, mushy, and just plain gross I’m sorry, but you have been doing it wrong.

There you have it, that is how to cook cauliflower rice.
The same technique goes for this Whole30 kimchi fried rice. And you are going to absolutely love it. The first reason being, the kimchi of course. Cauliflower rice pretty much takes on any flavor, which makes it a delicious little flavor sponge waiting to absorb all of life’s flavors. Kimchi is the perfect addition to cauliflower rice, it gives the dish an umami exerience.
Kimchi is a fermented Korean side dish. Because it is fermented it has probiotic qualities; this makes it great for digestion. Kimchi is also high in fiber, iron, and calcium. So basically, if you have not tried this spice bomb, now is the time.
