Simple, Delicious Pineapple Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower rice is my favorite thing. Ok, so maybe it’s really ice cream but cauliflower rice comes close.

I try to constantly eat low carb meals because I’m Italian and somewhere in my DNA I’m pretty sure there is a yet undiscovered gene that causes all carbs to stick to my body. However, I love carbs so that makes passing up things like pasta and rice really difficult.

However, now that cauliflower rice is a thing, I feel like my prayers have been answered. I know that its cauliflower, but my head really believes that it tastes like rice. It saves me when I’m making an Asian inspired dish and sneaks in the extra veggies I know my body actually needs.

I love this recipe because it takes that cauliflower rice and adds a sweet component to it that sets it apart from other cauliflower recipes and it’s so colorful!

Get the details on the full, easy recipe below.


  • 12 oz. of cauliflower rice
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1 cup of edamame (I use frozen.)
  • 2 green onions, chopped and separate the white bottoms from the green tops
  • ½ cup of pineapple
  • ¼ cup of pineapple juice
  • 3 tbs. of soy sauce
  • 2 tbs. of olive oil
  • Handful of cilantro, chopped


1. Heat olive oil in a pan and add white bottoms of green onion.

2. Once they soften, add red pepper, carrots and edamame. Cook for about 4 minutes stirring occasionally.

3. Add pineapple and cook for about 2 minutes.

4. Add cauliflower rice and cook for about 2 minutes.

5. Add soy sauce and pineapple juice and mix thoroughly.

6. Cook until the cauliflower rice is softened and warm. Then remove and serve alone or with a protein.

It’s so easy and so healthy! I swear you will not miss the actual rice and you will probably fool your kids.

Happy eating, friends!


  1. Oh yum – that sounds delicious. My husband would love this, so I think I might make it the next time we have a date night at home.

  2. Seriously, I have to try cauliflower rice. Years ago I made mashed cauliflower (like mashed potatos – as you know) and it was a major HIT with everyone so I make it all the time now! So – I know this rice will probs also be delish. Gotta try soon!

  3. I can’t believe how versatile cauliflower is and we never knew all of these years. I love the pineapple in it as a citrus twist. Yum!

  4. This sounds SO delicious!!!!! I love cauliflower rice way more than actual cauliflower! I need to give this a try for my family!

  5. ooo this looks delicious! I haven’t tried making cauliflower rice yet but I have seen quite a few recipes and want to give it a try!

  6. This rice looks so good! I love pineapple and I have started eating cauliflower rice sometimes too for less carbs. I even did cauliflower steaks one day for a meatless meal!
