Ingredients

  • 1 medium head of cauliflower — cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil — divided
  • 3 eggs — beaten
  • ½ cup white onions — diced
  • 1 cup carrots — diced, replace carrots with orange bell pepper to make it low-carb
  • 2 cloves garlic — minced
  • 1 cup frozen green peas — replace green peas with green bell pepper to make it low-carb or whole30
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce — use coconut aminos for whole30
  • fresh black pepper to taste
  • 6 green onions — minced, for garnishing
  • sesame seeds — for garnishing

Instructions

  1. Pulse the cauliflower florets in a food processor for about 25-30 seconds until it's a rice-like consistency.
  2. In a large skillet, add 1 tablespoon of sesame oil over medium heat. Add the eggs, and stir them until they are cooked. Set aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil, onions, carrots, and garlic. Cook until the veggies are fully cooked.

  4. Add the cauliflower rice, green peas, soy sauce, black pepper, and the cooked eggs. Mix everything well to combine. Be careful to not overcook. Otherwise, the cauliflower will become soggy.

  5. Before serving, top with green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
