  • Return pan to medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 Tbsp sesame oil . Add garlic, onions and ginger, stirring often until onions have become translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add cauliflower, peas and carrots. Continue cooking until vegetables are just tender , approx. 4- 5 minutes, (making sure not to overcook or the cauliflower will become too soggy)
  • Stir in soy sauce(or coconut aminos) , shrimp, eggs, salt and pepper to taste. Top with green onions.

Notes

* Many stores sell a mixture of frozen carrots and peas
**To make your own Cauliflower rice- Cut a large head of cauliflower into florets. In a blender (or food processor) add approx. 1 cup of the cauliflower florets and process for approx 15 sec. until the cauliflower is the consistence of rice. Transfer to a large bowl and repeat until the remaining cauliflower is processed.( It's important to work in small batches when making the cauliflower rice to get even "rice" size pieces).
