Simple garlic fried rice is a staple in a lot of Filipino meals, but in my mind, it is a crucial component of the Filipino breakfast. I won't lie to you. The real deal has a texture that is simply impossible to replicate using cauliflower rice, but it's worth doing even if it's just to capture the flavour association I have come to expect. Sure, you can just use regular steamed cauliflower rice as a side if you're feeling lazy, but if you want to kick up your Filipino breakfast or brunch a notch, it's worth putting in the effort to make it.
