Ingredients

  • 1 medium cauliflower rinsed and pat dry with paper towels
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 small onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots blend
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or more to taste
  • 1/4 cup green onions diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Cut the cauliflower in half, remove the core and let the cauliflower dry completely.
  • Chop into florets, then place half in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower is small and has the texture of rice, don't over-process or it will get mushy. Set aside and repeat with the remaining cauliflower.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg and egg whites, season with salt.
  • Place a large saute pan or wok over medium heat and once hot add the sesame oil.
  • Saute onion, garlic, ginger, peas and carrots, and celery for about 4-5 minutes, or until soft.
  • Raise the heat to medium-high and add the processed cauliflower rice and the soy sauce.
  • Mix well, cover and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.
  • Push the mixture to one side of the pan, add the eggs, stir and cook like you would do scrambled eggs. Once almost cooked, mix the eggs with the cauliflower rice.
  • Add the green onions, stir and remove from heat.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and more green onions.
