Best Cauliflower Side Dish Ever

This is a remake of an older recipe I had on my other blog. It’s quick and satisfying and makes a large portion which I like, because I can eat the leftovers for a few days.

1 head cauliflower, grated
1 package, shittake mushrooms
6 green onions
2 shallots, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
3 tbsp coconut aminos (no soy sauce or tamari, please)
3 eggs
Coconut oil
Meat of choice (I used grilled steak)
Sesame oil for garnish*

1. Grate the cauliflower using a food processor (or if you have time and the patience of a saint, a box grater).

2. Prep the veggies (slice the green onions and mushrooms thinly and mince the shallot/ginger).

3. Heat a large skillet/wok to high heat. Add a spoonful or two of coconut oil. Saute the mushrooms, shallot and ginger for ~3 min or until they begin to soften, stirring often.

4. Add the cauliflower, green onions and coconut aminos. Saute for ~5 min.

5. Push the veggies to the side of the skillet and create a well. Crack the eggs into the well and scramble (yes, kind of like you’d do with fried rice). Stir everything to combine.

6. Top with a meat of your choice. I prepared it this time with slices of grilled steak on top. Shrimp is also delicious with this.

7. *Garnish with a drizzle of sesame oil, if preferred. Please do not cook the veggies with sesame oil as it’s high in Omega 6′s and will oxidize easily at high heat. A nice drizzle at the end to finish off the dish after it’s been plated is super yummy.

    I’ve not seen “packages” of shiitake mushrooms at the store. Did you use dried? If fresh, what weight/measurement of the mushrooms did you use?
