Ingredients

Instructions

  • Prep Cauliflower: you’ll need either a handheld grater or a grater attachment for your food processor. I highly recommend getting a food processor, it makes life so much easier when you want to use fresh ingredients. Clean your fresh head of cauliflower and simply grate it into a bowl and set it aside (you now have cauliflower "rice" that's ready to cook!). 
  • Prep the rest of the ingredients: dice your carrots and shallots, slice your corn off the cob, and mince your garlic and set aside.
  • Drizzle sesame seed oil over the stir frying vegetables and let them cook about 10-15 minutes (or until carrots have softened).
  • Stir in grated cauliflower gradually adding soy sauce as you mix and combine well with other vegetables.
  • Next, stir in peas (I try to do those last so they don’t get mushy or break part from stirring).
  • In a separate pan (or the same pan if you have room), melt butter and scramble your eggs.  Once cooked, add them to your stir fry and gently (watch your peas) fold them in.  
  • Season the whole mixture with chipotle chili powder, ginger, and a pinch of salt. 
  • Serve hot and enjoy!

Notes

*For this recipe, I used ground ginger, but fresh gives it a little extra zing if you want to use all fresh ingredients.  If you do happen to use fresh, add it in at the beginning with the minced garlic so it has a little time to cook down and doesn’t over power your dish.
