Ingredients Needed

  1. head cauliflower, shredded
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 1 cup (75 g) snow pea pods, fresh
  4. 2 tablespoons (28 g) butter
  5. cup (80 g) diced onion
  6. 2 tablespoons (16 g) shredded carrot
  7. 3 tablespoons (45 ml) soy sauce
  8. Salt and pepper

Cooking Instructions

Put the shredded cauliflower in a microwaveable casserole dish with a lid, add a couple of tablespoons (30 ml) of water, cover, and microwave on high for 6 minutes.

While that's happening, whisk the eggs, pour them into a skillet you've sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, and cook over medium-high heat.

As you cook the eggs, use your spatula to break them up into pea-sized bits.

Remove from skillet and set aside.

Remove the tips and strings from the snow peas and snip into -inch (6-mm) lengths.

(By now the microwave has beeped?take the lid off your cauliflower or it will turn into a mush that bears not the slightest resemblance to rice!) Melt the butter in the skillet and saute the pea pods, onion, and carrot for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the cauliflower and stir everything together well.

Stir in the soy sauce and cook the whole thing, stirring often, for another 5 to 6 minutes.

Add a little salt and pepper and serve.
