  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 3 pieces bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 3 green onions (sliced)


  • Quarter the cauliflower, remove the core and cut into florets. Put half into a food processor and pulse until the pieces are about the size of rice. Put into a bowl and repeat with the remaining cauliflower. Set aside.
  • Cook the bacon at medium-low heat until crispy, about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer the bacon to a plate when it is done. Chop it into small pieces.
  • In the same skillet, add the butter to the bacon grease. Whisk the eggs and scramble in the bacon grease and the butter. Scrape the scrambled eggs into a bowl. Add the chopped bacon.
  • Clean out the skillet and put it back on the stove at medium-high heat. Add one tablespoon coconut oil, along with the diced onion. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add the garlic and riced cauliflower, along with the other two tablespoons of coconut oil. Cook, stirring continuously for 4-5 minutes until cauliflower is soft but not mushy.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and stir together for 1-2 more minutes until the peas and carrots are heated through. Remove from the heat and stir in the bacon and eggs. Serve immediately.
