  • 1 small head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil*
  • 2 large carrots, sliced thin
  • 1 cup peas, frozen or fresh
  • 3-4 tablespoons soy sauce, Tamari is gluten free
  • 2 large eggs, optional for vegan
  • 2 green onions, chopped


  • Using a food processor pulse the cauliflower florets, in batches, until it is about the size of rice (if you don't have a food processor you can use a cheese grater and grate the cauliflower florets).
  • In a skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and sesame oil. Saute the onion and garlic for aboiut 3-5 minutes or until soft. Add in the carrots and peas (if frozen). Cook another 5 minutes.
  • Using a wooden spoon slide the vegetables to one side of the skillet and pour the whisked eggs onto the empty side of the skillet. Scramble the eggs, then combine with the vegetables.
  • Add in cauliflower and peas (if unfrozen). Stir and cook for about 8-10 minutes or until cauliflower is well cooked.
  • Add soy sauce and cook for a few more minutes.
  • Serve with chopped green onions and extra soy sauce.


Black sesame oil is my favorite and lends the most flavor but a light sesame oil can be used also. Also, you can use more olive oil if you don't have or can't find sesame oil.
