Chinese Take Out, Made In

When your friends flake on plans like dandruff.

When your Tinder date ghosts you even before you meet for the first time at that seedy bar.


When your boss’s bitchy minion sucks as being a human being.

When your husband plans poker night with the boys on your anniversary (THANK GOODNESS you can return that uncomfortably promiscuous strappy body suit, am I right?).

When your wife still goes for pedicures and manicures with the girls even though you gifted her with an 18 karat rose gold necklace so as to subtly hint that you want some sexy time (Where’s the Suave…).

And when the dog decides to actually go fetch… A bitch as opposed to the stick you threw like Babe Ruth.

Hold it right there!

You may think Mr. Chin’s Chinese Bistro will fill the void of your extreme disappointment and present you with a positive fortune at the end of the meal, it will really just fill your gut with unhealthy omega-6 fatty acid laden oils, a vat of MSG and tell you…

Well, what I (as well as my NON-FLAKY FRIEND Gina) am about to teach you how to make doesn’t contain chicken either. It also doesn’t contain any rice, MSG or crappy oil. Yet the recipe I am about to reveal to you will fix your BUMMED OUT state and your SUDDEN Chinese Food hankering…

This recipe: Beef “Fried Rice”.


Oh and to all those who ditched you… Well …他妈的他们… They can go JUMP IN THE YANGTZE RIVER! 


But ladies… Great news! You can return that wildly awkward and rather expensive skimpy piece of string that was supposed to go… Up there?… And use some of the money refunded to you on the ingredients for this tasty fried rice replacement (including the much-needed SECRET INGREDIENT* I am about to reveal to you) and then have loads left over to spend on… Ahem. Lululemon?

Watch how you can beef up your new-found alone time without getting fried!

  • Next, pour in the beef bone broth and crack in the eggs and stir the entire combo together.
  • Now crumble in the ground beef, cook for 2 minutes, then add the garlic, tamari sauce and ginger! 
  • And in 3 minutes – BOOM! 完!!

So as you can see… This “fried rice” isn’t exactly friedAnd doesn’t even contain much of any oil. The magical trick to making this recipe taste just as good as Mr. Chin’s Chinese Bistro’s beef fried rice… BEEF BONE BROTH! Kettle & Fire Beef Bone Broth, what I use specifically use in this recipe… Is hands down a miracle cure (and 100% Grass-Fed/Finished & SUGAR-FREE)!!! It will not only help cure your depression after having plans you’ve been looking forward to canceled the last second (because it’s included in this mood elevating dish), but it also helps support your immune system and contains healing compounds such as collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline! These compounds help heal your gut lining and reduces intestinal inflammation! Oh and another cool component of bone broth… IT CAN HELP YOU OVERCOME FOOD ALLERGIES AND INTOLERANCES!?

What in the WHAT WHAT?! (Always consult your doctor before ditching your epi-pen or chugging a gallon of milk – if you’re allergic to dairy). Go light your kettle on fire with Kettle & Fire<– USE COUPON CODE: GIGIEATS15 to get 15% off!!!

  • Don’t lie: how much do you flake?

  • Did you know bone broth has so many health benefits
  • Which fast food/staple take out dish do you wish had a HEALTHIER “cousin”? 


  1. Oh wow, this looks great! I love that you used the frozen cauliflower rice! This is a perfect quick meal for anytime I’m craving Chinese takeout. Thanks!

    • Completely!!! I have never used cauliflower rice before this recipe, I am WILDLY impressed by it! :) Totally filled the Chinese Food VOID!

    • That is a great looking recipe! Thanks for yet another healthy idea!

      • Of course!! :) It’s really good – I should have made it this weekend! haha! But my dad was the HEAD CHEF in the kitchen!

  2. Yum! This sounds so good. I love Chinese take-out, but haven’t eaten it in such a long time because of all the yucky stuff you mentioned. I’ve been wanting to try riced cauliflower and bone broth, so this is the perfect recipe for it.

    • YES! Shann, you must try this! My mouth was in utter heaven and it was the perfect fuel to take on the day, didn’t make me feel heavy or give me a headache like typical Chinese Food might!

  3. My favorite take out comfort food is Pizza and not the healthy kind! :( Keeping it real. :) People with road rage really annoy me. I have been reading more and more about bone broth, but I haven’t yet tried it! This may tempt me.
    My family really likes a black bean soup we fix and serve over rice. In trying to cut out carbs at night I needed a healthier suggestion and many people suggested the cauliflower rice. I’ll have to try this next time. I didn’t have any but I did sub chick peas!

    • I certainly hope this recipe temps you enough for you to try Bone Broth! It’s an absolute must. The name might sway you not to because it sounds “gross” but it’s basically broth, and it’s delicious!! I really highly recommend it :) Cauliflower rice is totally “all the rage” right now, and um, initially I thought UGH who cares, but NOW I SEE WHAT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT! haha!

  4. This is a great combination. We have diabetic friends, so fried rice without the rice is perfect for them. I am so happy to have found this recipe.

    • Yay! I am thrilled you found it too Patti! This recipe is BEYOND amazing for diabetics so please do share with all of your friends!

  5. That Caauli Fried Rice looks delish!

  6. What a cool way to replace rice with something healthier! Definitely have to try!

    • It’s a HAVE TO – A MUST!! Cauliflower instead of rice = phenomenal!! You can BARELY taste the difference!

  7. This looks good. Let’s see, my favorite takeout food (probably not so much comfort) is pizza. It keeps my kids quiet. Lol I’ve never used beef broth, I must give it a try.

    • Ah ha ha! Keeps your kids quiet, that’s funny. Pizza can definitely be a SOOTHER – that’s for sure. I have a healthier version of pizza on the blog too you should check out! :)

      But first, TRY BONE BROTH!

  8. Love it, the whole thing 😀 and I love cauliflower rice, definitely going to try this one!!

  9. I’ve never seen “riced” cauliflower before. I’ll have to look for it.

  10. I seriously can’t eat Chinese food–like a bite, but that is it. It KILLS my stomach. But cauli rice? LOAD ME UP/
    Also, I am always the only sober one at functions, so I actually keep the plans that people make (that they don’t remember). Thus why I’ve had many brunches alone.

    • Ah ha ha ha! I am ALWAYS the sober one too!!! Ha! So I am NEVER hung over, so I am ALWAYS at brunch the following day as well… Without or WITHOUT whoever I am supposed to go with! FOOD waits for NOONE! lol

  11. I prefer “Take Out” food made at home. It always cheaper, the flavor is way better, and I like knowing what is really going in my food! I’m going to have to try this recipe!

    • EXACTLY! And this recipe completely fits the bill you describe!! So you better get on this Jessica – haha!

  12. I’ve actually made my own cauliflower fried rice before and it’s phenomenal! My version was vegan though :) I try to keep my takeout as healthy as possible–steamed veggies, sometimes with steamed tofu, or shrimp or chicken if I’m ordering for the family! I do love stir-fries but they do contain a lot of oils and weird sauces!

    • Steamed Veggies and Chicken at Chinese Food Restaurants – if I have to go at all… IS THE BEST! I don’t know how they do it, but anywhere I go, it’s consistently DELICIOUS!!

  13. You really crack me up Gigi :) And uh-oh, we just had takeout last week. They’re just so easy and delicious (even though we know they are kind of shady). Ah well, time to make healthier choices!

    • Yeah, take out is really really easy to get sucked into. But once you try this recipe, I KNOW you will get sucked into it!

  14. Sharareh Drury says:

    First off, I am so thankful for this recipe bc I have been testing out cauliflower rice with different sauces, seasonings, spices, etc. to find a nice mix to prep for work lunch. This looks so tasty! Now I may not admit how much of a flake I can be… but I’ll admit my favorite take-out comfort foods are: Kung Pao chicken or Chicken/Cashew nuts… or Indian food like tandoori chicken.

    Never used Kettle & Fire Beef Bone Broth but am definitely going to give it a try now!

    As for a fast food/staple take out item I’d like a healthier version of? I’d love ways to make Chinese food healthier… finding ways to make the seasonings or sauces better,
    and ways to mix it up with the veggies too. TBH I think Chinese food can be pretty healthy if we get rid of a lot of unnecessary stuff and stick to the meat, the veggies, and a bold flavoring.

  15. Everyone is raving about the health benefits of bone broth. But I have never made it or used it. The recipe looks so deelish and I’ll sit here awhile and determine what I have on hand to make it.

  16. Gimme Dat! And . . and an extra shot of bone both, I need it

    • HAHAHA!!!! Imagine if drinking games were done with BONE BROTH?!?! I would be the first to get DRUNK off of the stuff 😉

  17. Haha – you had me dying over Casper! And THAT dog!!!
    I do know about the health benefits of bone broth – and have some at home and think this is the perfect recipe for it – LOVE the use of cauli rice in this taste bud tantalizing, Chinese-Craving Crusher of a recipe!

    • My goodness, I should change the title of my blog post to TASTEBUD TANTALIZING, CHINESE CRAVING CRUSHER. LOL!

  18. Good recipe, and fun way to use cauliflower rice. It’s the amount of oil in Chinese takeout that gets me. Oh, and they always seem to “forget” not to add MSG even when you specifically ask them not to include it. :-( Anyway, fun stuff. Liked the “finished” symbol (yes, I actually clicked to see the Google translation!).

    • THE OIL – it’s totally the oil… Because all that RICE and some of the veggies they use – ahem, eggplant, SOAK UP THE OIL so so so much! Also… Deep frying chicken and beef and what not, NOT healthy either… HEY MORE OIL! HA!

      Glad I could teach you some Chinese today too! 😉

  19. This looks fabulous! I love Chinese food, but am stopped by all the additives. Will definitely try this!

    • This one has NO additives, other than HEALTHY ones like the bone broth and the herbs/spices – so it’s TOTALLY allowable! :)

  20. Wow, that was quite an intro into your recipe! LOL! You crack me up. And BTW, I make THE BEST homemade Chinese food. Way better than carry out. Isn’t that interesting…

  21. I bet you never got ghosted on Tinder! If you were ever on Tinder. I wasn’t because I’m mad old.
    I’m impressed here. Cassidy does order Chinese for comfort food. We have a local place that does pretty healthy stuff, but probably not all GiGi-approved.
    I want some cauli-rice right now.

    • FUN FACT: that is where I met my fiance! BAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! I almost ghosted HIM 😉 BEYOND thrilled I didn’t though!

      And I am curious about what “healthy stuff” is! hahaha. I think you need to make this recipe for Cassidy so he can change his ways 😉

      • ha! What made you almost ghost? You’re both glorified hotties!
        Ok, so you know I live in a very local, organic place. This Chines place is like China meets western MA. They use local and organic produce and they do mostly steamed food, rather than fried. I think you’d like it, actually!

        • Oh man, now THAT is a longgggg story – probably not one to ever be written on the internet, LOL!

          And um, you must tell me the name of this restaurant now, because I am totally curious and want to look it up cause I am a GRADE A weirdo!

  22. Hahaha on the 他妈的他们! LOL! And I think that jumping in the Yangtze might just be about the worst (yet most perfect) punishment for anything ever.

    • Ah ha ha! I actually did a little research and the Yangtze river is one of the most polluted rivers in the world. So I do think jumping into it, would be punishment – LOL 😉

  23. You don’t show up in my reader anymore, and I found this post quite randomly…

    I love cauliflower rice. I’ve made my own “stir fry” versions. It’s so convenient to have in the freezer. For a while I made my own beef bone broth (but, honestly, I just don’t make it consistently enough, partly because I really don’t care for the smell…). I should really look into getting some quality bone broth! I’ll look into the brand you are using!

    • How did your house smell when you made beef bone broth? My mom makes it sometimes! I remember going home once and seeing it in the fridge and it gave me the heebie-jeebies! HAHAHA!

      And what READER are you using?! That’s not cool. Guess that means you just need to subscribe to my newsletter – LOL!

  24. My favourite fast food takeaway, well this is a hard one as we always cook at home but when I buy takeaways it would be Asian stir fry noodles (any variation) or savoury pies (beef and cheese is good)

    • I am envious of you Raymund. I tend to eat out WAY TOO MUCH!!! I am always soooooo excited when I get to finally eat at home :)

  25. Thanks for sharing! My fiance would love this! I flake on myself more than other people – when I am the only person affected! I love bone broth. I need to be better about making my own!

    • GIRL – You need to quite flaking on yourself. Self-care is very important or else you might eventually burn out! THAT is not good AT ALL! GO get yourself a pedicure and/or massage and then fill your belly with this delicious recipe… And make your fiance MAKE IT for you! haha!

  26. This looks soooo good! I posted a thai recipe today – we must be craving the same things!

  27. Hahahaah! OOMG what a brilliantly hilarious twist. Did not see that coming. EPIC post, now this is so inventive. Got my chopsticks all ready.

    • Tee he he he! I like to twist and turn in my blog posts! 😉
      I LOVE that you have your chop sticks handy… You’re DEFINITELY going to need them for this post!!

  28. This sounds delicious! YUM!

    I would love for you to share this with my Facebook Group for Crafts, Recipes, and Tips and Tricks:

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  29. Hahaha I love your sense of humor! Hilarious! And this recipe sounds gooooood!

  30. That looks delicious and seemed so quick and simple to make. Thanks for sharing!

    • That’s the best part = this recipe is QUICK AND SIMPLE! Two of everyone’s favorite words when it comes to COOKING!!! 😀

  31. The video was great to whatch, I love that you always include some colorful memes in your posts! hahaha

  32. Hmm, I don’t get take out like…ever. Unless you count occasional pieces of chocolate cake from The Cheesecake Factory. That happens.
    I’m curious about that cauliflower rice. I don’t really like rice but I love cauliflower so maybe I’d like cauliflower rice?

  33. My kids would really like this one and they will never know it’s cauliflower

  34. This looks really good, I love Chinese food, I think I’m going to hve to try this out

  35. this is so cute! love this post. i adore chinese food but know its not the best for me. glad i have this recipe

  36. Hah! Thank goodness for healthier Chinese takeout on nights that we need it most! Love this! :)

    • Right?! Buy those the ingredients for this recipe NOW as a “security blanket”! haha – I have all of these ingredients in my freezer JUST IN CASE!

  37. hahaha, those scenarios. 😛 It also made me happy to know that I’m still capable of reading some Chinese characters, har har har.

    This “fried rice” looks + sounds delicious! :] I’ve been meaning to use cauliflower more!

    • LMFAO! You didn’t cheat now, did you? 😉 I think profanity is allowed if it’s in another language – right? LOL

      • I did not!–I studied Mandarin for a couple years! 😛 And of course! Another language makes it totally okay, hahaha. ;P

        • I give you SOOOO MUCH CREDIT! I tried Chinese for 1 day in college… Dropped out and never looked back! LOL!!!

          • hahaha, it’s effing difficult to learn–I had an easier time only because the reading and writing’s the same for Cantonese and Mandarin, but that whole no-alphabet thing makes life rather difficult! 😛

  38. My fav comfort takeout food is 100% pad thai – I actually got some this past weekend after my long bike ride, but it was from a new place and it wasn’t good :( That’s my least favorite part of ordering out – when you spend money and calories and end up with something that doesn’t even taste good!

    • UGH no kidding!! This is why I tend to ALWAYS go to the same take – out restaurants/restaurants in general and tend to always order the same things, because I knowwww they are good, thus I KNOW I am getting my money’s worth – haha! I am sorry about your Pad Thai :( Have you ever made it at home? I have actually NEVER had it before in my life! 😮

  39. No, I have never used the bone broth. If I need broth for a recipe, rarely, I tend to make my own. As for takeout, Chinese s high up on the list of comfort food.:)

  40. I DO know about the health benefits of bone broth and have been making it for a friend sick with cancer for the last few months. I roast organic bones and then cook it for 2 days. It’s truly helping and it thrills me to be able to do something positive for her!!
    What a great photo of the dish, GiGi! I could happily sit down and dig in with my chopsticks all night long! Hope your birthday was fabulous, girl!

    • Oh man, I am so sorry to hear about your friend! BUT THAT IS INCREDIBLE that it actually seems to be helping her!!!!! But seriously, that’s amazing and just proves that healthy food can certainly be MEDICINE!!

      And I have to say, I was BEYOND THRILLED with the photos I took of this deliciousness 😉 TE HE HE HE! I ALWAYS think of you when I get snapping! And I mean, I had chop sticks and I thought of you saying PROPS – so YEPPP! In the picture they go! 😉

  41. Great looking meal, never heard of rice Cauliflower must be a Cali thing ? I have not tried the broth has to be very flavorful. I have only tried Chinese take out once here, my cat (rip) smelt it and ran outside need I say more. The last annoying thing would be to much writing for your blog and you would get annoyed at me. Beautiful vacation pic’s and that Landon high in the Tetons :)

    • Actually, it’s not! You can find riced cauliflower everywhere!! Trader Joe’s specifically has it but I know Kroger is jumping on board too! An dyep, the broth is extremely flavorful! I know you’d LOVE IT!!!

      That’s pretty funny that your cat (RIP :() Actually ran out of the house because of the smell! Ah ha ha ah! That’s definitely SAYING SOMETHING!

      Oh did I write too much in this blog post? HA HA! I tend to go on tangents at times!

  42. I’ve heard that riced cauliflower is fantastic. i need to try this at home.

  43. This looks amazing. We love a good stir-fry and fried rice at our house so this will fit in nicely.
    We don’t eat out much or do fast food almost ever so I can’t really answer that one.

    Comfort food for me means black beans and corn tortillas and avocado.

    • NOW I WANT SOME AVOCADO dang it! HA! Hopefully I have got you wanting some cauli-“fried rice” too 😉 MAKE IT and let me know what you and the girls think!!

      • Will do.

        Also it took me until now to realize that you twice mentioned abandoning an uncomfortable piece of lingerie.

        Plans go south? Is he in trouble?

        • LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets be real Josh. I feel sorry for all the women who TRY TO HARD with strings up random cracks. I go 100% commando from head to toe when I mean business! Ha! When this happens, he’s definitely in trouble! 😉

  44. My favorite comfort food would be a heaping pile of mashed potatoes. One of the worst veggies, but oh so delish. I wish they weren’t instant potatoes and made with the real thing at fast food joints.

    • Potatoes aren’t necessarily bad, they’re just not the best if you mix it with butter, cream and milk – haha! There are some awesome mashed potato recipes out there that would fill the void if you decided to try and make them healthier – mix them with coconut butter, olive oil and maybe even a little creamy avocado! :)

  45. I actually know more than you’d expect about bone broth. It was something I read often. I even made my own, but never drank it because it smelled horrific. HA. I love me some cauli rice, such a versatile little fucker.

  46. My favorite take out comfort food is pizza. I have to make an effort to stop myself from eating it as often as I like.

    • Oh man, when I could eat pizza, I could and would easily eat the WHOLE pie!!!! It’s hard to stop eating that deliciousness!

  47. That sounds delicious, but I love the puppy meme! I’ll have to check my local store for riced cauliflower.

    • If you cannot find riced cauliflower, you can always take raw or frozen whole cauliflower and put it in a blender or food processer and let it whirl away!

  48. This sounds so good! I’ll have to give this a try when I have a craving for Chinese food next.

    – Cait |

  49. Bahahaha, you are too funny! But yeah, food is such a nice faux-comfort, that it’s perfect to have at least a healthy alternative to make when your bf does something stupid!!

  50. Elizabeth O. says:

    How can you not love this! It’s a very healthy alternative to your usual chinese take out. I’m definitely keeping the recipe. And good job with that intro, it’s always so funny and entertaining!

  51. This looks good good goooooooooood! I am all about takeout fakeout as I can rarely eat out with all of my allergies!

  52. that looks super good. i have got to find riced cauliflower at my store. so many uses.

  53. Ok, my favorite take out is pizza and souvlaki (being Greek, you know). Although we have couple of Chinese take outs I usually make it myself. This dish looks absolutely perfect and I think I am going to put it in my “to do” list.

  54. I definitely had a blast reading all of these memes! I can totally relate and it’s so much better to cook homemade Chinese food than to order out! This recipe is a keeper!

  55. Love me some cauliflower rice! :)

  56. I like how you’ve transform just another recipe post into a funny and easy to read one. Cauliflower rice in a Chinese dish? Intriguing!

  57. That one’s a winner in my book. Reminds me of that time when all I could do was eat our local Chaofan back at home. Oh boy! Beef/pork with special fried rice…mmm, tastes wicked great. By the way, your style of greeting us with memes just works for me, cool format!

    • I am glad I can work for you! 😉 I always try and intrigue people before I lay the recipe on them – haha!

  58. Yesss, this looks so good! I have two bags of TJs riced cauliflower sitting in my freezer right now, so I really want this. Also, loved the memes!

  59. Cauliflower rice is da bomb! I need to try it out!

  60. Oh my goodness this post makes me so happy to realize that I am not alone making this kind of recipe! Yay!

  61. Michelle Cantu says:

    Riced cauliflower, who knew?! I think I have been under a rock, recipe sounds fantab!

  62. Somewhere between China and the U.S. “Chinese” food lost it’s way! Glad you have come to the rescue with this tasty dish! When I eat “Chinese” I either modify the order or get everything steamed and sauce it myself.

    I don’t have a problem with rice. The longest lived people in the world eat it at almost every meal. We have one Chinese take-out here that offers brown rice. I do like cauliflower however.

    • Yep! If I ever go out for Chinese (which is super duper rare) I will simply get steamed chicken and broccoli. I won’t lie to you, I kind of LOVEEEEEEE how they steam their chicken, LOL!! They pound the crap out of it. The texture to me is everything, hahahaha!

  63. This looks great! Super easy to make but so many flavors going on here. :) My favorite take-out food definitely used to be pizza, but now that I can’t eat tomatoes, I generally prefer Chinese food (or Chipotle :P)!

  64. I need to make this for Evie She loves shitty Chinese… annnnnd it actually gives me the shits. HAHAHA!

    I’m not a flake. We’re golfing. Or watching golfing. Whatever. 4 more dayssssss!!!

  65. You are just the bomb dot com my dear! XO

  66. THIS fried rice looks AWESOME! Riced cauliflower is such a unique idea. Absolutely loving it.

  67. Love Chinese take out but don’t love the way it makes me feel afterwards. YUCK!! Now this fried “rice” is something I can eat every other day, enjoy it immensely, not feel sick to my stomach after, AND save all that take-out food money to spend on something else! Yes, I’m talking about you shoes 😉

  68. I was so on the bone broth train until I got sick while drinking it (totally unrelated to the bone broth, but it was what I had been drinking regularly at the time). Since then every time I’ve tried to re-introduce it to my diet, my body just won’t have it, ha! I can of course mix it into things like this and it’s fine, but if I try to sip on it straight up, it makes me feel nauseated. Such a shame because I felt great while drinking that stuff daily there for awhile!

  69. Ron Leyba says:

    Thanks for sharing that recipe. Might try it this weekend.

  70. I 100% am not a flake, flakes drive me nuts!!! I do however prefer a delish french fry with ranch as my comfort food lol! I like to oven bake them and dip them in a yogurt based ranch, yumm!! Oh, and a margarita hahahah!

  71. What’s your favorite take-out comfort food? COOKIES! :)

    What’s the last thing that really annoyed you? How much time do you have? :)

    Did you know bone broth has so many health benefits? YES!

    Which fast food/staple take out dish do you wish had a HEALTHIER “cousin”? I don’t eat fast food but maybe fries but there are already alternatives to those! :)

    • I have all the time in the world for you Jody, so complain away! Ha! We should set up another lunch!

  72. I love cauliflower rice so much! I need to give it a shot in the form of fried rice. This looks PERFECT.

  73. I have never used cauliflower for one such fried rice recipe, but this sounds like a great idea to try out. With beef being so much favorite & the combination of frozen cauliflower with other ingredients makes it a mouth watering recipe to go for!

    • Oh it is most certainly mouth-watering for me as well. Probably wouldn’t be all that mouth-watering for a vegan, but we don’t have to think about that 😉

  74. Now this totally looks yummy! I need some of this and the fact that it contains almost no oil is even better. Beef bone broth is a first for me too.

    • RIGHT?! This is seriously a low fat (depending on the % of fat you get for ground meat) recipe! And it still has LOADS of flavor!

  75. This was actually a funny. I would eat that. my go-to takeout comfort food is Chinese food. Ill take the house fried rice any time.

  76. Nicole Escat says:

    I want to try this recipe. We loved eating Asian foods and I like that fortune cookie, so fun!

  77. I can’t remember the last time that Lynne and I had Chinese take out, I always cook it for us at home now. I think Chinese food has got such a poor reputation now, and it’s a real shame because they actually use just the very minimal amount of oil themselves and the very freshest of veggies.

    Anyway, rant over. I’d cook this for Lynne, no problems!

    • Chinese Foods is SOOOO different over in China than it is in other countries – the original recipes have most certainly been screwed with wayyyyy too much! Glad to hear you’d prefer making it at home 😀

  78. Great idea to use cauli rice for this, love making takeaway food at home!

  79. I’ve been loving the cauliflower rice thing!!

    • RIGHT?! I am going to keep on keeping on with this cauli-rice!! But… BRING ON the digestive enzymes! LOL!

  80. Loved this post!! Fab:)

    Fave take out comfort food, cake!!

    Do I flake….rarely!

    When was I last annoyed….someone lied to me…yep, bad!!

    mainy xx


  81. Perfect quick meal for the tired and busy mom who loves Chinese without the fee :) Awesome. You really do crack me up GiGi and you absolutely need to get the affiliate stuff going, sign me up already… 😉 😉

  84. Oh, so that’s what bone broth is.

    • Yes sir, it’s pretty much just broth! And it works well mixed in with lots of stuff, especially this recipe though!

  85. I love me some fries rice:) Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe; I am now going to have stop picking up the phone to order and actually make my self.

  86. Perfect timing! My friends haven’t ditched me, but I have some frozen riced cauliflower I don’t know what to do with — or didn’t until now!

  87. Favourite take-out/comfort is probably Thai, but I’ve heard it has lots of sugar :(
    The last thing that really annoyed me was the licensing board of our lovely state.
    I can’t get over that “lingerie”…it looks SO uncomfortable and you literally would have to be a skeleton in order to avoid rolls pushing through all those straps. Ugh.

    But, your dish looks delish!

    • I think I should wear that piece of lingerie the next time I see you… And that ONLY – hahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahaha!

    we love Chinese. i need to save this for later. my family would love it.

  89. Yum! I love Chinese food and I love cauliflower rice, but I’d never thought to make cauliflower rice into Chinese food. Seriously yum!

    • BOOM! What do you get when you put the two together?! THIS master piece of deliciousness! 😀 😀 😀

    My fave comfort food is pizza. But it can’t be any pizza it has to be from my favorite little italian pizzeria.

    • I have my favorite sushi restaurant, and nothing else even comes close to being as good! It’s funny when I think to myself I should try a different place. I always get wildly disappointed! lol So I here ya Christina!

      • christina aliperti says:

        Lol, that’s what happens to me! By the way, I can’t wait to try this, I love fried rice but this would be so much better for me…less guilt!!

  91. Hahahaha I loved this! You are so funny and creative!

    • Thanks Melanie!! I don’t really know how my brain works – it just sort of does what it wants without my permission! haha!

  92. You’re right…homemade food is so much better for digestion. That’s the one thing I have trouble with when I eat take-out chinese.

    • Ugh! Right? Digestion plays a huge role in how we feel over-all, so if it’s feeling a bit WONKY, you bet your aunt Sally you’re not going to be a happy camper! Do what you know feels best for you!

  93. This sounds so delicious! Totally trying this!

  94. Try out the cauliflower mashed. It’s really good as mashed and it’s quite tasty too. It would be perfect for what you made.

  95. Looks good! I’ve yet to work with cauliflower rice but I think I need to!

  96. Thanks for sharing at Let’s Get Real Link Party. I love cauliflower rice but never thought to make fried rice. That could be a side dish or a main meal. Yum.

  97. This looks delish! I have a tie for my favourite takeout – pad thai and pizza! Since I can’t eat gluten, eggs or dairy the pizza is out and a modified pad thai wins. Found your post at Share the Wealth Sunday

    • How do you modify pad thai? I have never had thai food thanks to my food allergies and intolerances, but I really feel as though I am totally missing out!

  98. I love love love cauliflower rice! The last time I had it, I mixed it with BBQ sauce and sweet potatoes…yummmmm

  99. I don’t know this Mr. Chin, but I really need to get on board with some of this cauliflower rice business!

  100. I love Chinese take out. This sounds tasty and much healthier.

  101. That beef bone broth is just genius! And talk about flavour! This looks completely delicious. I’d pick this any day over take out and top it with sriracha, of course, ’cause I love it spicy :)

    • YES!! Sriracha – a totally AMAZING addition I didn’t even think about! I am not really a spicy kind of girl, but I feel like that’s cause I AM WEIRD – everyone LOVES spice! 😉 And the beef bone broth = REALLY infuses flavors 😀

  102. Hi GiGi,
    I have never made riced cauliflower, so this is my chance. Thank you for sharing your healthy and delectable cauli fried rice with us on the Plant-Based Potluck Party Link Up. I’m pinning and sharing.

  103. WOW! This is so innovative. I love the combo. Sounds so delicious. I always look for new variety of rice.Thank you so much for sharing this :-)

  104. My husband says one is getting old if he appreciates chinese food. Well, i very much love Chinese food and if he calls me getting old then so be it.

  105. victoria says:

    These is a great recipe, I bet my hubby would surely love this

  106. It is similar to Yangchow (a Chinese food too) and it looks so tasty! Seems easy to prepare and will definitely try this on a weekend.

  107. Yay yay yay- I just bought 4 bags of TJ’s Cauliflower Rice! Totally making this for lunch this week :) And shockingly I have tamari on hand! Last thing that annoyed me- the guy who sits next to me at work always wanting to be so chatty in the morning. Dude- let me get a cup of coffee in me before you ask me a million questions.

    • OH FACK! That is how I am before working out! DO NOT talk to me until I get my dose of exercise PUHHH LEEEEEZE!!

  108. Lovely recipe

  109. I love that you reinvented my favorite Chinese dish! I have to try a similar version of this soon :)

  110. That looks absolutely yummy. Thank you for sharing this great recipe, even I think I can make this.
