Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 2 cups mixed carrots and peas fresh or frozen
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon optional sesame oil

Instructions

  • Wash the cauliflower and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Grate the cauliflower using a box grater or food processor.
  • Transfer the rice to a piece of paper towel and squeeze to remove any excess moisture.
  • Add cauliflower rice, carrots, and peas to a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Cook on high for 2 minutes.
  • Beat the eggs in another bowl, and add it on top of the cauliflower rice. Don’t mix at this point.
  • Cover with the lid or plastic wrap, and microwave on high for 45 seconds (the eggs will be half-cooked).
  • Mix the egg with the cauliflower rice and other vegetables. Microwave for another 45-60 seconds until eggs are fully cooked. Season with salt, pepper, and mix well.
  • Sprinkle with chopped green onions. Serve and enjoy!
