Ingredients
  

  • 15 ounces riced cauliflower
  • 10 ounces frozen vegetables
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt or onion powder

Instructions
 

  • Heat your oil in a pan until it's warm and simmering, then add your cauliflower rice and mix. Spread into an even layer and let cook for about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir and let continue cooking for 5 to 6 more minutes until moisture is gone.
  • Add your veggies and cook through, then make a well in the middle of the pan and add the eggs.
  • Scramble the eggs as they cook, then mix them into the rest of the dish. Add your seasonings and give it another stir.
  • Top with soy sauce before serving.

Notes

  • You can’t boil cauliflower rice like you would normal rice. In a cold dish like a salad, you don’t even need to cook it at all. For other dishes, it works best to quickly sauté it.
  • Don’t sauté it for too long. This will make your cauliflower rice soggy, and nobody wants that.
  • Don’t use too much soy sauce. Since cauliflower rice is not a grain, it doesn’t absorb liquids the same way rice does. If you use too much sauce or dressing, it’ll just pool at the bottom. Start with less and work your way up.
