Chicken Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice

This keto low carb kimchi cauliflower fried rice has all the flavors of the traditional dish without all the carbs!

We live in a city with many Korean restaurants so naturally, I have an affinity towards Korean food.  I love all the spices and flavors they use to season their foods especially anything with kimchi involved!

Keto Low Carb Chicken Kimchi Cauliflower Fried Rice

I had my first taste of kimchi fried rice at a friend’s house growing up and I was a hooked ever since.  I would often make it at home using leftover rice, kimchi, eggs, and whatever else I found in the refrigerator.

Since becoming low carb, I have missed my kimchi fried rice dearly and I have no idea why I didn’t think about making a low carb friendly version sooner!

I mean we have quite a few low carb fried rice dishes like our Japanese Garlic Beef Fried Rice and our Garlic Chicken Fried Rice, so it’s only natural I would make a kimchi fried rice!

Now, I understand that many ready jarred kimchi you find at the store contain sugar and for the strict keto folks out there, this might not work for you.

But for the rest of you, there is about 2g of sugar per cup which is pretty negligible and definitely worth it considering the reward at the end.

We found that using cauliflower rice to make kimchi fried rice surprisingly produces a close resemblance to its traditional rice counterpart.

So, if love kimchi and kimchi fried rice, I implore you to try this recipe out!  It leaves you full with your cravings satisfied
