Prep time: 20 mins

Cook time: 10 mins

Total time: 30 mins

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head (about 24 oz) cauliflower, rinsed

  • 2 eggs

  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • Vegetable Oil

  • 1 tbsp of butter

  • 1/2 small onion, diced fine

  • 1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 5 scallions (green onions), diced

  • 4 tbsp soy sauce

  • Optional: sesame oil, cashews, sriracha!

Instructions

  1. Chop up your cauliflower and place in a food processor. Pulse until you get a rice like consistency (not too small or it will be mushy). Aim for pea size.

  2. Place the cauliflower in a dry dish towel and squeeze out the moisture. Get out as much as you can. Or you can let the cauliflower dry out the day before.

  3. Using a bit of vegetable oil, saute onions, peas, carrots and garlic about 3 minutes, or until soft.

  4. Once it looks ready, raise the heat to medium-high and add in your cauliflower and soy sauce. Cook covered for 4-5 minutes stirring occasionally.

  5. Meanwhile, beat eggs together in a bowl and add them to your cauliflower rice. Cook for 1-2 minutes more mixing the whole time (until eggs are cooked through and cauliflower is ready).

  6. Plate and garnish with green onions! Add soy sauce and sriracha as you like!
