  • Instant Pot


  • 1 package frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1 cup fresh cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 2 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup frozen green beans
  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • Place the butter and olive oil in the Instant Pot and press the SAUTE button.

  • Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Start with ½ tsp of each and add more as needed is what I chose.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and press the MANUAL setting to 4 minutes.
  • When the IP is done cooking, it will beep and go to OFF. Make sure the pressure has been released by turning the pressure valve from SEALING to VENTING. Make sure the FLOAT VALVE is down and remove the lid from the IP.
  • Stir the riced cauliflower and vegetables and turn the SAUTE setting on.
  • Stir fry the cauliflower and vegetables until all the liquid is absorbed and is golden brown.
  • Move the riced cauliflower and vegetables to the side of the IP and break an egg into the IP on the other side. Scramble the egg and cook until completely done, about 3-4 minutes.

  • Sprinkle with soy sauce and brown sugar and stir again to mix it all together.
