Easy Shrimp and Vegetable Cauliflower Fried Rice

Do you love fried rice? Have you ever craved the taste of fried rice but with less carbs? Then its time to try cauliflower fried rice! Even if your not a big fan of cauliflower as I used to be, cauliflower has a such a barely noticeable flavor that its become a perfect substitute for rice along with quinoa for many recipes besides fried rice. Homemade fried rice is one of my favorite occasional comfort takeout recipes and this recipe is a modified version of my already very delicious shrimp fried rice recipe. The best part is that cauliflower rice is very easy to make since you just need a high powered blender or food processor. If you don't want to minced the cauliflower yourself and are pressed for time, frozen microwaveable cauliflower rice is a good option also!
