Making your cauliflower rice from scratch? See post for methods and instructions and cauli rice it up! To save time I used fresh bagged cauliflower rice from the produce section.
If making the yum sauce (SO GOOD!) whisk together ingredients and set aside. Use the water to thin the sauce as desired. I added 2 TBSP to make it pourable. The sauce can also be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
Peel and finely dice onions and carrots. Mince garlic and set aside.
Heat a large lipped pan or skillet to medium-high heat with 1 TBSP oil.
Sauté onion, carrots, and peas until the onions are translucent and the carrots and peas are tender and cooked through.
Next add garlic and cauliflower rice. Sauté for 2-3 minutes or until the cauliflower is heated through. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Give it a taste and 1. ensure your veggies are tender enough and 2. decide how much of your aminos or soy sauce to add. I went with 1.5 TBSP. Mix it all together and stir in your green onion and optional bacon.
For scrambled eggs, move mixture to the side and raise the heat. While the pan is hot, add a little spray or drizzle of oil to the empty side and add your cracked eggs. Scramble until cooked through and mix in with the veggies. You can also opt to add fried eggs on top if you'd like. Have fun with it!
Garnish with toasted sesame seeds if desired and drizzle with yum sauce before serving. Craving heat? Chili sauce makes a great addition too. Enjoy!
As written this recipe is paleo, low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free, whole 30 compliant and keto friendly. For an easy vegetarian breakfast bowl, simply skip the optional bacon or add your favorite swap!
Feeling saucy? This cauliflower rice is amazing drizzled with hot sauce, yum sauce, sweet chili sauce, or Sriracha.
