Ingredients

  • Vegetable Oil
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • sea salt
  • 6 scallions, chopped (stem parts separated from end parts)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped ginger
  • 1 2 lb head of cauliflower or 2 lbs ready to cook cauliflower
  • 5 tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil or toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup chopped cashews

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, with the grating disc, grate the cauliflower to rice size (should take 1-2 minutes). Or, you can buy prepared cauliflower rice in the frozen section at the grocery store.

  2. Heat 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the eggs and a pinch of salt. Cook until scrambled. Set the eggs aside on a plate.

  3. Add 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil to the skillet and turn to medium high heat. Add the white parts of scallions, garlic and ginger, and cook until softened for about 3-4 minutes.

  4. Add the grated cauliflower, 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, sugar and ¼ tsp of salt. Cook, stirring often, for about 3 minutes.

  5. Add in the peas and carrots, and continue to cook the cauliflower rice, stirring occasionally. You want to crisp the rice mixture at this point, by letting it cook for a minute, then stir and cook the other side of the mixture, so all sides are crisped, but still tender on the inside. This will take about 7 minutes. You really want to crisp up the cauliflower rice. You will see it start to brown and become crispy. This is an important part to making the rice so delicious!

  6. Stir in rice vinegar, sesame oil, dark green part of scallions, cashews and eggs. Adjust seasoning at this point if necessary (ie: you can add more soy sauce if you'd like).

  7. Serve hot and enjoy!
