Serving Size:

Serves 4



  • 1/4 cauliflower
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 2 tbs tamari
  • 1/2 brown onion (diced)
  • 3 strip bacon (sliced into strips)
  • 2 clove garlic (crushed)
  • 1 tbs ginger (minced)
  • 1 head broccoli (broken into florets)
  • 1/2 red capsicum (diced)
  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 spring onion (sliced)
  • 1 long fresh red chilli (finely sliced)


Break cauliflower up into florets and place in a food processor. Blitz to form coarse ‘rice’.

Heat 1 tbs oil in a wok over high heat. Combine beaten eggs with 1 tsp of tamari. When oil is very hot, pour in eggs and swirl wok to coat evenly. Leave for 30 seconds until set. Turn out onto a board. Allow to cool slightly, then roll up and slice into 1cm ribbons.

Heat remaining oil in wok over medium-high heat. Cook onion and bacon for 2 minutes until onion is translucent. Add garlic and ginger and cook for a further minute, stirring continuously. Add broccoli and capsicum and cook for 2 minutes until broccoli is just tender.

Add cauliflower ‘rice’ to wok. Stir well to combine. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add remaining tamari and fish sauce. Toss wok until everything is cooked and well combined. Drizzle with sesame oil and serve topped with sliced spring onions and red chilli.


  • Most soy sauces contain some gluten, so you can use regular soy sauce instead of tamari if gluten doesn’t bother you.
  • Add extra veggies if you like - mushrooms, peas, spinach and Asian greens would all work well.
  • Pile on the herbs for a bigger green hit - coriander, chives and Thai basil are a great idea.
