Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste optional
  • 2 medium carrots peeled and diced
  • 6 cups riced cauliflower fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup peas fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup corn fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup scallions minced
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat sesame oil in a large, deep pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger and chili paste to the pan until fragrant, about 30 seconds, before adding in the carrots. Sauté carrots until tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in riced cauliflower to the pan and cook until it starts to brown slightly, about 6-7 minutes, stirring frequently. Add peas, corn, soy sauce and rice vinegar to the pan and saute until warmed through, about 3-4 minutes. 
  • Form a little hole in the center of the pan by pushing the vegetables off to the side. Spray area with cooking spray then crack egg directly over the hole. Using a wooden spoon, slowly begin to scramble the egg until cooked to your desired level of doneness. 
  • Add scallions to the pan and stir until evenly incorporated. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
