Cashew Fried Cauliflower Rice with Grilled Chicken Tenders

Here I go again with the cauliflower, I can’t help myself! I am so obsessed with how many different ways you can prepare this vegetable, and it is all very tasty and healthy. I love cashew chicken, but decided to go a different direction and make cashew fried cauliflower rice, and I will probably make it more often that’s how delicious it was!

To accompany the rice I grilled chicken tenders which have been marinating in soy sauce and garlic, it was a nice combination.

This recipe serves 2


For the chicken:

250g chicken tenders

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 clove garlic, minced



For the rice:

1 small head cauliflower, cut into florets

½ cup cashews, unsalted

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

½ tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 tablespoon hoisin sauce

2 tablespoon soy sauce

½ tablespoon sriracha

4 scallions, white and green parts, sliced (keep a tablespoon separate)



Mix together the olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper, add the chicken tenders and marinate for at least 3 hours.

Add the cauliflower florets to a food processor, a few at a time, and pulse each batch to get the same consistency as rice, set aside.

Dry roast the cashews until fragrant, about 5 minutes, they will become crispy once cooled off.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan, add the garlic and scallions and fry for a minute. Now add the remaining ingredients, except the rice and cashews. Once the mixture is hot add the cauliflower rice and stir-fry for about 5 minutes or until the rice if cooked.

In a very hot grill pan, cook the chicken tenders about 5 minutes, turn over half way. Make sure your pan is very hot; this will add a nice grilled flavor to your chicken.

To serve, stir the cashews through the rice and transfer to two plates, now add the grilled chicken tenders, the extra scallions and enjoy!
