Herbed Cauliflower Rice with Eggs and Goat Cheese

Breakfast is always there. Everyday it’s just hanging out waiting for you to wake up and decide what the heck you’re going to do with it. Will it be eggs again? Scrambled? Fried? Poached? What about bacon? Shall you instead have sausage? Add some cheese perhaps? A splash of salsa or a bit of black pepper? Breakfast. Every single day, it never lets you down. With that being said, sometimes I like to mix it up – sometimes I even feel extra creative first thing in the morning, when I get that cup of coffee in me at just the right time, when I’m not so hungry that I don’t want to think about it, when the heavy cream takes the edge off just enough to put some thought into what I’m going to make beyond the typical, and that’s exactly what happened when I created this meal. Most importantly, it was easy – and with ingredients I already had on hand – and hopefully you will already have on hand as well so you can read this with your perfectly timed cup of coffee and be ready to jump into action! I hope you enjoy!

Herbed Cauliflower Rice with Eggs and Goat Cheese

Author Sarah Fragoso


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ small red onion finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 small zucchini diced
  • 1 small red bell pepper diced
  • 1 bag of Riced Cauliflower from Trader Joes - OR 1 small head of raw cauliflower chopped into a “rice like” consistency in your food processor
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Eggs cooked how you like
  • Herbed goat cheese crumbled
  • Fresh parsley chopped for garnish


  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat, add the onion and saute until the onions start to caramelize.
  2. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant.
  3. Add the zucchini and bell pepper and saute for one to two minutes.
  4. Add the cauliflower rice and saute until tender, approximately another 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add the Italian seasoning, balsamic vinegar, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Set aside.
  7. In another pan, make your eggs however you like. We love ours sunnyside up or over easy.
  8. Scoop a large serving of the cauliflower rice into a bowl, top with an egg or two, crumble on some goat cheese or for us, we had an herb crusted goat cheese, and garnish with some chopped fresh parsley. Enjoy!

    Do I only have to eat from this recipe to loose weight….how it will contribute to the weight loss…Does this ingredients has any particular reaction to the body or what exactly is…I really want to believe this because emotionally we want to see changes in our body and trying different thing without success hurts…So how do I have to use the recipe to have a success result…Thank in advance for sharing this interesting topic

    1. Eating one simple recipe will not help you lose weight, it’s way more complex than that. I advise you to listen to our podcast – start from the beginning, you’ll learn so much! : )
