Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time40 mins
Servings: 4 servings


  • 1 cup uncooked rice (I used brown jasmine rice)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1.5 cups baby carrots, chopped
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil, plus another 1/2 tbsp (divided)
  • 1 cup frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1 cup frozen spinach
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos (or substitute organic lite soy sauce)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Sliced green onions, sesame seeds or other topping, if desired


  • Cook the rice first according to package directions. This can be done ahead of time.
  • Heat a wok or a large, heavy skillet over high heat. Add the 1 tbsp of toasted sesame oil to the wok or skillet along with the onion and carrots. Stir fry for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the riced cauliflower, spinach and green peas to the wok and stir fry for another 2 or 3 minutes.
  • Crack the eggs into the fried rice mixture and stir fry immediately, scrambling the eggs with the vegetables until they're almost cooked completely, about 3 or 4 minutes.
  • Add the cooked rice to the mixture and turn off the heat.
  • Add the coconut aminos (or soy sauce, if subbing) and the other 1/2 tbsp toasted sesame oil to the mixture and stir well. Season with sea salt to taste.
  • If desired, top your homemade fried rice with sliced green onions and/or sesame seeds.
