Egg & Avocado “Rice” Bowls: Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, & Mouth-Watering

rice bowls

Rice bowls can be a quick, easy, delicious, & very versatile meal.  You can literally mix anything you want with the rice, and use any flavors, spices, & sauce concoction — the options are endless!

Unfortunately, rice (especially refined white rice) is very high-glycemic, turns into sugar in your body, spikes your blood sugar, causes inflammation, and can lead to weight issues & health problems.  Even whole-grain brown rice — while it’s a healthier option — still turns into sugar in your body, so it’s best kept in moderation.

So how do we satisfy a rice bowl craving without all the carbs & sugar?? Enter one of your new best friends: CAULIFLOWER. 🙃


Cauliflower “rice” is a phenomenal substitute for regular rice, and it’s super easy to make!  Riced cauliflower is used as the base for these grain-free, gluten-free “rice” bowls — and from there, you can let your foodie imagination & creativity run wild!

This post includes one of my favorite “rice” bowl combinations (egg + avocado + raw cashews), along with a few ideas for additional ingredients & sauces.  It’s not a super-fancy or sophisticated recipe, and it’s a little hodge-podge, but lemme tell ya — it’s sooo yummy!! 🤗

  • 1 head of cauliflower (organic is best), OR 1 bag of pre-“riced” cauliflower (super quick & easy!!)
  • 2 tbsp. organic virgin coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 organic free-range eggs
  • ½ ripe avocado
  • 1 handful of raw cashews
  • Sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • Organic full-fat cheese of choice (optional) — I especially love to add some fresh goat cheese sometimes!
  • Any sauce/dressing ingredients & spices of choice — this is where you can really practice some culinary creativity! ☺️  (You can either make a sauce on your own, or buy it from the store — but you have to watch out for unhealthy oils & added sugars!)  Some of my favorite store-bought AND healthy dressings/sauces are below (click the pictures to find them online!):

  1. “Rice” the Cauliflower: Cut cauliflower into smaller pieces, and then either use a cheese grater, or pulse the cauliflower in a food processor/blender until cauliflower looks like little rice-sized pieces. (If you buy the cauliflower already “riced”, you can skip this step.)
  2. Saute the cauliflower “rice” with the coconut oil or olive oil in a medium-sized frying pan (on medium to medium-high heat).
  3. While the “rice” is cooking, fry 2 eggs in coconut oil over medium heat in a different pan.
  4. Once the “rice” is done cooking (once it’s more tender or to your desired consistency), add salt & pepper to taste, along with any other spices you’d like & the sauce of your choice, and mix it well.
  5. Transfer “rice” to a bowl (as much of the “rice” & sauce mixture as you’d like to eat).
  6. Add the 2 fried eggs, the ½ avocado, & handful of raw cashews to the bowl of “rice”.  (You can also add cheese if you’d like, or any other mix-ins.)
  7. Mix everything together in the bowl, and ENJOY!! 😋
