  • 1 head cauliflower or 12 oz frozen cauliflower rice
  • 12 oz frozen veggies i.e. carrots & peas
  • 2-3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2-3 tbsp coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 onion, diced (optional)
  • 1 tsp turmeric (optional)
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar (optional)
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger or 1/2 tsp dried (optional)
  • chopped green onion and chicken (optional)


  1. Roughly chop up a head of cauliflower so that it fits in the food processor. Blend it until the cauliflower is approximately the size of rice (or use a frozen bag of cauliflower rice!)

  2. (If adding onion) Heat a large cast iron pan on medium heat with olive oil. Once hot, add onion and fresh ginger. Sauté for 5-7 minutes or until onions are transluscent. Then add frozen mixed vegetables and cauliflower rice and cook for 2-3 minutes or heated throughout. 

  3. Push cauliflower rice off to the side and add beaten eggs to the other side of the pan. Cook until the eggs are fluffy and then mix everything together. Turn heat to low and add coconut aminos or soy sauce, sesame oil, optional spices and season with sea salt & pepper. Top with sliced green onions and if you want extra protein, some cubed or shredded chicken! I also love serving with seaweed too1
