How to Make Cauliflower rice breakfast bowls
The ingredients cook quickly on top of the stove so it's important to have everything prepared and ready to cook. You can use one pan and cook the ingredients separately or you can speed up the process, and use two pans.
Prepare the ingredients: chop up the vegetables and set them aside. Whisk the eggs with a little bit of milk or water. Warm up the cauliflower rice or whole grains and set them aside and shred the cheese.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, add the vegetables and cook until they are crisp-tender. If you are using leafy greens, cook the onions and garlic for a few minutes and stir in the greens until they wilt.
Divide the cooked vegetables in half and place them into two bowls.
Add the eggs to the skillet, cook them until they are solid and add them to the bowls with the vegetables. Top the eggs with the heated cauliflower rice or whole grains and then shredded cheese.
Add any other toppings, such as salsa, jalapenos, or olives.
Vegetables - You can add any combination of your favorite vegetables, choose a mixture of textures or use only one vegetable.
Eggs - This recipe calls for scrambled eggs, but you can use a fried egg, poached, soft or hard-boiled egg.
Cauliflower rice - I use frozen riced cauliflower and quickly heat it in a pan before adding it to the breakfast rice bowl. Leftover whole grains are a great option to use in these breakfast bowls in place of the rice.
Cooked Whole Grains can be substituted for cooked cauliflower rice.
