I love this mushroom fried “rice” recipe — it is SO quick and easy to make, and it tastes so good! But at the same time, it’s absolutely packed with nutrients from the high-quality protein in the eggs to the vitamin- and mineral-rich mushrooms. The fiber and protein in the riced veggies will help you feel full without all of the slow-you-down carbs that you’d get from regular rice.

2 tbsp. cooking oil/fat of choice
6 oz. sliced mushrooms of choice (I used cremini)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 cups riced cauliflower and broccoli
1-2 green onions, both green and white parts, chopped
1 large handful baby spinach leaves
Cracked black pepper
Add 1 tbsp. cooking oil/fat of choice to a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Add mushrooms to pot and toss to coat. Add garlic salt and cracked black pepper to taste. Saute until mushrooms are slightly browned, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a large pan over medium heat, add 1 tbsp. cooking oil/fat of choice. Add chopped garlic to the pan and simmer until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add riced cauliflower and broccoli to the pan and stir. Simmer until the riced vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
Add chopped green onions and a large handful of baby spinach to the pan. Simmer until spinach begins to wilt, about 2 minutes.Crack 2 eggs into a bowl, add salt and pepper to taste, and scramble with a fork or whisk. Move veggies to the sides of the pan and create a well in the center. Add your egg mixture to the center of the pan. Let it sit until it begins to solidify, about 1 minute, and then slowly begin to gather the eggs to the center of the pan with a spatula. Continue this until the egg has become solid, then break the eggs apart and fold into the veggie mixture.
- Add mushrooms back into the pan and simmer another minute or so. Remove from heat and serve!
