Are you bored of the same old breakfast? A couple of scrambled eggs and some dry toast? Or maybe your morning consists of a more “convenient” breakfast.

Maybe a banana and a granola bar. Sometimes, you just want to nourish your body better in the morning. I’ve got just the thing.

A few weeks ago, I was making this cauliflower and egg dish. It was in the middle of the afternoon, but I wanted something with veggies and protein in it. And then the other morning I was craving it again. I thought this dish would be the perfect breakfast food, and it was!

Key Ingredients

cauliflower rice ingredients cauliflower, frozen veggies, eggs, salt, onion, zucchini, and olive oil.

Cauliflower. Chopped into small florets and lightly fried in some EVOO.

Zucchini. Amping up the nutrients.

Frozen mixed vegetables. You could totally add fresh veggies here but I like the convenience of the frozen ones.

Chopped onions. For added flavor.

Two eggs. Scrambled in towards the end. These give you protein and help you feel full.

This dish is made up of ingredients that you usually have at home. It’s also a very versatile and forgiving dish.

If you don’t have zucchini, feel free to swap it out for something else! Add sriracha or another hot sauce for heat is fabulous! There’s a lot you can customize about this dish – I think that’s my favorite part.

Be sure to try this dish – it’s chock full of healthy goodness, and tastes oh so yummy!
