  • ½ lb /250g speck or bacon cut in small chunks
  • 1 large grated cauliflower about 7 cups
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • knob of ginger finely diced
  • 1 carrot diced
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • 1 can baby corn in bite-sized pieces
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 3 tablespoons Sweet Soy Sauce Kecap Manis
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 3 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 green onions


  1. Cut the cauliflower into pieces, removing the inner core. Grate using a grater, or using a food processor pulse until it resembles small rice pieces. I got about 7-8 cups of cauliflower rice.
  2. In a frying pan, lightly scramble the eggs and fry them into a thin round omelette. Allow to cool and slice into thin ribbons. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, fry the chunky bacon pieces until the fat renders and it starts to crisp up. Add the onions, ginger and garlic and fry until they are caramelized.
  4. Mix in the diced carrot and frozen peas and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the cauliflower rice, sesame oil, red pepper, baby corn and stir until combined. Cook for about 7 minutes.
  5. Mix in the egg ribbons, green onions, soy sauce and Kecap Manis (Sweet Soy Sauce). Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

For more flavor, you can garnish with chopped peanuts, chopped cilantro or crispy fried onions. For a spicier fried rice, add a red chili pepper when frying the onions. You can double the bacon for more flavor and fat content.
