You don’t need rice to get the satisfying flavor of fried rice, and in this case, broccoli works beautifully!
Just pulse it up in the food processor before cooking.
Serve this as s side, or make it a main with the addition of some clean protein.
An egg scrambled right into the skillet towards the end will give you a more traditional flavor, or cook in leftover chicken, tofu or chickpeas towards the end of the cooking.
This veggie-focused “rice” is also great reheated in the skillet, for breakfast lunch or dinner!
Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan/vegetarian and delicious!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  • 2 cups Broccoli (chopped into small florets)
  • 1 tbsp Avocado Oil
  • 2 cups Mushrooms (sliced)
  • ½ Garlic (clove, minced)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut Aminos
  • ½ tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
  • ¼ cup Almonds (slivered)
  • 1 tbsp Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 3 stalks Green Onion (chopped)
  • ¼ cup Cilantro (chopped)
  1. Chop broccoli into small florets. Slice mushrooms. Mince garlic. Chop green onions and cilantro.
  2. Add the broccoli florets to a food processor and pulse until a rice consistency forms.
  3. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add in the avocado oil. Once the oil is warmed, add in the broccoli, mushrooms and garlic. Cook for 10 minutes, or until done to your liking. Some brown bits on the bottom make for more flavor!
  4. Once the ingredients are cooked through, add in the coconut aminos, toasted sesame oil, almonds, onion powder and sea salt. Cook for roughly 3 minutes, stirring often to combine the flavors. Remove from heat.
  5. Top with green onions and cilantro. Divide between plates and enjoy!
Nut-free Omit the almonds or use sunflower or sesame seeds instead.

More Protein: Stir in a beaten egg towards the end of cooking to scramble into the food. Serve as a side to chicken, or tofu, or add canned chickpeas to the pan when adding broccoli and mushrooms.

Leftovers: For best results, reheat leftovers in a skillet.

Foods that Heal: High fiber foods, like broccoli, keep the entire digestive system flushed and healthy.
