  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 8slices baconoptional
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1tablespoon minced ginger
  • 3cloves garlicminced
  • 2 medium carrotsdiced (about 1 cup)
  • 250gram cornfresh or frozen
  • 150gram peasfresh or frozen
  • 4 shallotsthinly sliced
  • 75gram cashewsalmonds, or other nut
  • 2tablespoons to 3soy sauce (or if gluten-free1 to 2tamari)
  1. Cut the cauliflower into florets, discarding the tough inner core. Working in batches, pulse the cauliflower in a food processor until it breaks down into rice-sized pieces. You should have 5 to 6 cups of cauliflower “rice.”
  2. Cook the bacon in a large frying pan over medium heat until crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel to drain. Once cooled, roughly chop into pieces. Drain off all but a teaspoon of bacon fat (or use 1 teaspoon vegetable oil), reserving the grease.
  3. Place the pan back over medium-high heat. Whisk the eggs and pour them into the skillet. Quickly scramble the eggs or make an omelet. Transfer the eggs to a cutting board and roughly chop into pieces.
  4. Wipe the pan clean and warm 1 tablespoon of bacon fat or vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and garlic, and sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the carrots and sauté until crisp-tender, 2 minutes. Stir the corn, peas, and cauliflower “rice” into the pan, mixing the ingredients thoroughly.
  5. Lower the heat to medium, cover the pan, and cook until the cauliflower is tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Uncover and stir in the bacon, eggs, green onions, cashews, and 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Taste and add more soy sauce to taste. Serve immediately.
  6. Leftovers will keep refrigerated for about a week.
