  • 3 Tbsp. oil divided
  • 3 large eggs whisked
  • 1 cup white onion finely diced
  • 1 red bell pepper finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 tsp. ginger paste
  • 1 ½ lbs. cauliflower rice thawed and drained if frozen, about 1 large head
  • ¼ cup soy sauce or a gluten-free Tamari
  • 1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • ¾ - 1 tsp. salt to taste
  • 1 ½ cups frozen peas and carrots thawed
  • ¼ cup green onions


  • Add one tablespoon of oil to a large skillet or wok along with the whisked eggs. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until scrambled. Remove the eggs from the pan and wipe it clean with a paper towel.
  • Add another tablespoon of oil along with the diced onion and peppers. Saute for 3-4 minutes, or until tender. Mix in the minced garlic and ginger and continue sauteing for an additional 30 seconds.
  • Add the cauliflower rice, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, and salt. Cook over medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Mix in the thawed peas and carrots and scrambled eggs during the last 2 minutes of cooking.
  • Serve with chopped green onions and sriracha sauce. Enjoy!



Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: If you're making your own riced cauliflower, you can get it ready a day or two before. You can also chop the onion and bell pepper ahead of time.
  • To Store: Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 to 5 days.
  • To Freeze: Place cauliflower rice in a freezer-safe bag or container and store in the freezer for up to months.
  • To Reheat: Warm this back up in a skillet for the best result. If needed, you could use the microwave.
