  • 1 small head of cauliflower cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 3 scallions chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger minced
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten (optional)
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Napa or green cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup cashews roughly chopped


  • Place the cauliflower into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the chopping blade, and pulse about 20 times or until it resembles rice. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a saute pan on high heat, and add scallions, garlic and ginger. Saute for about 2 minutes.
  • Add eggs if using, and mushrooms. Stir well so egg scrambles quickly.
  • Add cabbage and carrots and combine all ingredients well.
  • Reduce heat to low, and add the riced cauliflower, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and sesame oil. Stir gently and let the mixture heat through for about 5 minutes
  • Serve immediately, garnished with chopped cashews.
