  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. avocado oil, divided
  • 23 eggs
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions (about 2 stalks)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 (10-12oz) pkg. frozen cauliflower rice (or, you can use fresh)
  • 23 Tbsp. gluten-free tamari* (can sub soy sauce for non-GF or coconut aminos for paleo)
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas


  1. Heat 1/2 Tbsp. oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. Whisk eggs in a small bowl until smooth and add them to the pan with the oil.
  3. Quickly scramble the eggs, stirring regularly with a spatial until eggs are just set. Remove eggs and place them on a clean plate off to the side.
  4. Add remaining oil to the pan and add carrots, bell pepper, and green onion to the pan. Cook 2-3 minutes over medium heat until crisp-tender.
  5. Add garlic, cauliflower rice, and tamari. Add peas and stir, cooking 2-3 minutes, or until cauliflower rice is just done.
  6. Return eggs to the pan and stir to combine, using your spatula to break up any large pieces of egg.
  7. Season with salt, pepper, or additional tamari, as desired, and garnish with additional green onion, as desired.


*For Paleo + Whole30: use coconut aminos instead of gluten-free tamari.

For Lower Carb: swap out the carrots and peas for lower-carb veggies like more bell peppers, mushrooms, shredded cabbage, or cut green beans.
