Serves 4
1 small head cauliflower
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 cup frozen peas and carrots mixture (or edamame and carrots)
3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
2 cloves garlic
1 large egg
¼ cup green onions

Cut the core from the cauliflower. With a sharp knife, chop the florets into thin slices. This will make the florets fall into tiny little crumbles. Place in a food processor, if desired, and pulse just until the cauliflower has the texture of rice.

In a large skillet, heat sesame oil over medium-high heat. Add cauliflower, frozen peas and carrots, soy sauce, and ginger to the skillet. Cover and cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Crack an egg into the skillet, stirring and mixing the egg into the cauliflower mixture with a spatula or wooden spoon until the egg is fully cooked. Stir in green onions. Serve immediately and enjoy.
