I never thought in a million years I would be eating a breakfast like this. I thought it would be gross. Well now I’m obsessed! Ever since I found the recipe in The Food Babe Way I have been making it and tweaking the recipe to my liking. It is very customizable. My adjustments from the original recipe are that I cut the recipe in half, I don’t add mushrooms (just because I don’t like them), I added garlic powder and onion, an egg, and I have been adding my cauliflower ‘rice’ instead of quinoa. The recipe for “Riced” Cauliflower is found in the Grain-Free Family Table cookbook. Sometimes I also add a little bacon or sausage but not usually. Only if I have some in the fridge that needs eaten up. My daughter likes it too. My husband and son do not. My husband even had it wrapped in a tortilla and added hot sauce. He would like it if I added meat, more eggs, and didn’t put the quinoa or cauliflower in, or tomatoes, or spinach… Okay, I would really have to change up the recipe for him to like it, lol.
- 1 TB coconut oil
- 1 - 2 cups spinach (or chopped kale - I don't chop the spinach but you can)
- ½ - 1 cup cooked quinoa, rice, or cauliflower 'rice'
- ½ - 1 cup of each veggie of your choice (broccoli, chopped tomato, chopped bell pepper, chopped zucchini, cauliflower)
- salt & pepper (sprinkle desired amount)
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp onion powder, 1 tsp minced onion, or 1 or 2 TB chopped fresh (optional)
- 1 - 2 eggs
- Other options: mushrooms, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, bacon, sausage
- Heat the coconut oil in a sauté pan on medium heat.
- Add any veggies you want, the spinach, and if you are using cauliflower 'rice'. Saute for 5 - 10 minutes.
- Stir in the quinoa/rice and seasonings.
- Push everything to the side of the pan, crack the egg(s) in the middle and scramble.
- Then mix everything in with the egg(s). Serve immediately.
After the coconut oil is heated up in the pan, add the veggies you want and the spinach (the spinach will shrink up after it cooks).
After sautéing the veggies for 5 – 10 minutes, stir in the quinoa/rice & seasonings. Then push everything to the side, crack the egg(s) in the middle and scramble.
Mix everything together and serve immediately. Serves 2, unless you’re really hungry. 😉
Here’s the cauliflower ‘rice’ I use. It’s basically just cauliflower that has gone through the food processor so it is in very small pieces.
