  • 3 3/4 cups riced broccoli (I used a container of Cece's Noodle Co.)
  • 1 cup diced red onion (100 grams)
  • 2 medium carrots, diced (1 cup/100 grams)
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • 3/4 cup frozen sweet yellow corn
  • 8 medium mushrooms, sliced (120 grams)
  • 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos, divided
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce (leave out if vegetarian)
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon hot sauce
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • optional toppings: cilantro, green onion, sesame seeds...


  1. In a large non stick sauté pan over medium heat, add avocado oil and let it get hot, about one minute. Add onion and cook for about 1 minute, stirring around. Add minced garlic and ginger and cook for another minute until fragrant.

  2. Add riced broccoli, peas, corn, 2 tablespoons coconut amino, sesame oil, and fish sauce and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sliced mushrooms and cook for another minute.

  3. Push ingredients to the side of the pan creating a hole in the middle of the pan. Add whisked eggs and scramble until cooked through. Mix into the veggie mixture. Add remaining 1 tablespoon coconut aminos, hot sauce, and lime juice and mix to combine.

  4. Top with optional toppings and enjoy!
