Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes


2 cups roughly chopped cauliflower or 1 1/2 cups riced cauliflower

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

1/8 tsp. ground cumin

Dash each salt and black pepper

1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh cilantro, or more for topping

1/4 cup chopped bell pepper

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

1/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed

3 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat Mexican-blend cheese

1/4 cup chopped tomatoes

1 oz. (about 2 tbsp.) chopped avocado


If starting with roughly chopped cauliflower, pulse in a blender until reduced to rice-sized pieces, working in batches as needed.

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add riced cauliflower, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. onion powder, cumin, salt, and black pepper. Cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl, stir in cilantro, and cover to keep warm.

Remove skillet from heat; clean if needed. Respray and bring to medium heat. Add bell pepper and onion. Cook and stir until slightly softened, about 3 minutes.

Add egg, remaining 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, and remaining 1/4 tsp. onion powder. Cook and scramble until veggies are soft and egg is fully cooked, about 2 minutes.

Add beans, and cook and stir until hot, about 1 minute.

Transfer to the medium bowl, and sprinkle with cheese.

Top with tomatoes and avocado.
