Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 large head cauliflower cut into florets
  • 6 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ginger freshly grated
  • 6 tablespoons coconut oil divided
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 cups matchstick carrots
  • 1 cup frozen green peas thawed
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs cubed
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped


  • Roughly chop cauliflower florets and place in a large food processor.
  • Pulse until the texture resembles rice. Remove cauliflower and squeeze with paper towels to remove excess water. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the next 4 ingredients (coconut aminos through ginger) and set aside.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil in a large non-stick skillet or wok, over medium heat.
  • Add onion and carrots, cooking until they begin to soften. Then add peas and garlic and cook 1-2 minutes more. Remove vegetables from pan and set aside.
  • Return pan to heat and add two more tablespoons of coconut oil. Add chicken, cooking 3-5 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from heat and add the chicken to the reserved vegetable mixture.
  • Return pan to heat and add remaining coconut oil. Add the cauliflower rice and cook 6-8 minutes, stirring only once or twice, until cauliflower has browned and become crispy.
  • Increase heat to medium-high, and create an opening in the middle of the cauliflower and add the eggs.
  • Immediately begin stirring the eggs around to quickly scramble and distribute among the cauliflower.
  • Once eggs are cooked, about 1-2 minutes, reduce heat to medium-low and add reserved vegetables, chicken and the sauce mixture to the pan. Stir well to combine and serve
