Cauliflower Fried Rice

I've always wanted to make cauliflower rice but for some reason I thought it would be too time consuming.  Well, I was wrong.  Very wrong.  Turning cauliflower into rice literally takes about 3 seconds thanks to this super easy tutorial.  I found this recipe for cauliflower fried rice and let me tell you, it's GOOD.  Really good.  So the next time you have a craving for fried rice, I highly recommend passing on take out and giving this super healthy version a try!

1 medium head cauliflower, rinsed
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 egg whites
1 large egg
pinch of salt
cooking spray
1/2 small onion, diced fine
1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
2 garlic cloves, minced
5 scallions, diced, whites and greens separated
3 tbsp soy sauce, or more to taste

"Rice" the cauliflower (FAST & EASY method here)
Combine egg and egg whites in a small bowl and beat with a fork. Season with salt.
Heat a large saute pan or wok over medium heat and spray with oil. 
Add the eggs and scramble.  Set aside.
Add the sesame oil and saute onions, scallion whites, peas and carrots and garlic about 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft.
Raise the heat to medium-high. Add the cauliflower "rice" to the saute pan along with soy sauce.
Mix, cover and cook approximately 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower is slightly crispy on the outside but tender on the inside.
Add the egg then remove from heat and mix in scallion greens.
