This recipe is super fast and is my answer to fast food on busy night. I always keep a bag of frozen peas and carrots on hand along with bags of cauliflower rice. I use coconut amino acids in place of a soy sauce and add some ginger (fresh or dried, which ever I have on hand).

Ideally, when I have time, I like to buy cauliflower on sale and then “rice”it and freeze it on my own. However, when I don’t have time I buy “riced” cauliflower in the frozen foods section at Trader Joe’s or Cost Co. On occasion, I have seen some “riced” cauliflower in the prepared foods area of the produce section of grocery stores.


10 mins

15 min 

25 mins

  • 1 head of cauliflower (or a bag of riced, frozen cauliflower)
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • cubed carrots and peas, 1 lb frozen package
  • 1 Tablespoon tamari soy sauce (gluten and grain-free; I use coconut aminos)
  • coconut oil to cook with
  • salt to taste
  1. Cut up the cauliflower into small florets so that they’ll fit into a food processor. 
  2. Food process the cauliflower until it forms very small “rice”-like pieces. (you can skip steps 1 & 2 if you have a bag of frozen riced cauliflower)
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil into a large pot. Add in the cauliflower and let it cook on a medium heat. Stir regularly to make sure it doesn’t burn!
  4. Add the package of carrots and peas to a pot of water and bring to a boil. Boil for around 5-10 minutes.
  5. Add in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil into a different skillet on medium heat and add in the 3 whisked eggs. Let the eggs cook a little bit before stirring it. Gently stir the eggs as if you’re making a scramble, but make sure the eggs don’t clump together too much.
  6. When the eggs are pretty solid, add the eggs to the cauliflower in the pot.
  7. Drain the carrots and peas and add to the cauliflower too.
  8. Add in 1 tablespoon of tamari soy sauce and salt to taste.
  9. Cook for 2-3 minutes more and serve.
