Ingredients

  • 2 Slices Thick-cut smoked bacon
  • 4 Cups Cauliflower florets
  • 3/4 Cup Onion diced
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic minced
  • 1/2 Cup Green onion sliced + additional for garnish
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Coconut aminos or to taste *
  • 1/2 Tbsp Cold-pressed sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sesame seeds for garnish optional

Instructions

  1. Heat a large wok over medium heat and cook the bacon until golden brown and crispy, flipping once. Remove to a paper-towel lined plate and pat off the excess fat.  Reserve the bacon fat in the pan

  2. While the bacon cooks, place the cauliflower florets into a large food processor and pulse until rice-like. Set aside

  3. Once the bacon is cooked and removed from the pan, turn the heat up to medium/high and add in the onions and garlic. Cook for 1 minute until lightly golden brown.

  4. Add in the riced cauliflower, along with the sliced green onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is golden brown and tender, about 5 minutes.

  5. While the cauliflower cooks, heat a small non-stick pan on medium heat.  Whisk the egg with the water and place into the pan. Cover with a lid and cook until the egg is set. Do not scramble it.  Once cooked, slide it onto a cutting board and slice into thin strips.

  6. Once the cauliflower is cooked, remove from heat and stir in the sliced egg, coconut aminos and sesame oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Then, crumble in the cooked bacon and stir until evenly mixed.

  7. Garnish with extra green onion and sesame seeds and DEVOUR!
