- 1 head of cauliflower
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup onion, diced
- 1/2 cup carrots, diced
- 1/4 cup celery, diced
- 1/4 cup red pepper, diced
- 1/4 cup green onions or chives, chopped
- 3 tablespoons coconut aminos or soy sauce
- 1 cooked chicken breast, chopped into bite-sized pieces
Cut the cauliflower into florets. Working in batches, pulse the florets in a food processor or blender until they resemble the size of rice. Set aside.
In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil over medium heat. Scramble the eggs, then transfer to a cutting board and give them a quick, rough chop. Set aside
Wipe out the skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil and return to the medium heat.
Sauté the onion, carrots, celery and peppers until crisp-tender, about 3–4 minutes. Add the garlic and stir-fry for another minute. Add the cauliflower rice and stir very well. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover the skillet and cook until the rice is tender, about 5–8 minutes
Uncover and stir in the chopped eggs, chives, cooked chicken and coconut aminos. Serve warm
