Ingredients


1/2 medium head Cauliflower (cored, cut into florets, for rice)
1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil (for rice)
1/2 small Yellow onion (for rice)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced, for rice)
1 tsp Soy sauce, tamari (for rice)
2 tbsp Chicken broth (stock), low sodium (for rice)
2 medium egg Egg
1 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
3 tbsp Goat cheese, semi-soft (crumbled)
2 stalk(s) Green onion, scallion, ramp (thinly sliced)
3 tbsp Salsa, ready-to-serve
1 dash Black pepper (to taste, for rice)
1 dash Kosher salt (to taste, for rice)

Instructions


  1. Pulse cauliflower florets in a food processor or blender until they are the consistency of rice.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the minced onion and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until the onion starts to soften and the garlic is fragrant, about a minute.
  3. Add the riced cauliflower, stir, and let it cook for about a minute. Add the tamari and chicken stock and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower is tender but still crunchy, about 6 minutes.
  4. Fill a medium saucepan with a lid with at least 5 inches of water, and bring to a boil. When the water is boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and add the eggs, one at a time, dropping them in carefully with a spoon so as not to crack the shells. Reduce the heat as low as it will go, cover, and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, fill a medium bowl with ice water. When eggs are cooked, use a spoon to transfer them, one at a time, into the ice water. Cool for 3 minutes, then peel the eggs and slice into quarters.
  6. To serve, place the cauliflower rice in a serving bowl and top with the egg, cherry tomatoes, goat cheese, green onion, salsa, salt, and pepper.

Notes:

You are not limited to boiled eggs for this recipe; they can be prepared any way you like, such as scrambled, fried, or poached!
