  • 1 head of cauliflower cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 small yellow onion finely chopped
  • 2 cups frozen peas and carrots
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce


  • Place cauliflower chunks in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles rice. Do not over-pulse or the mixture will become paste-like.
  • Heat sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion, peas and carrots and garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until veggies are soft.
  • Push veggies toward the outside edges of the skillet and pour the beaten eggs into the center. Let cook for a couple minutes, breaking them apart with a spatula. Once they are mostly cooked through, stir the veggies into the egg mixture.
  • Add cauliflower rice to the pan, along with the soy sauce. Mix everything together and cook until cauliflower is tender, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately and top with an extra splash of soy sauce, if desired.
