Building Your Loco Moco
Spoon cauliflower rice onto a plate and garnish with lettuce or greens.
Sprinkle cauliflower rice with dried nori seaweed flakes.
Using chopsticks or your fingers, place pickled daikon radish sticks on top of the cauliflower rice in two rows crisscrossing to make a grid pattern.
Place slices of cucumber on top of the daikon to make a flat surface (or floor). Extra cucumber can be added to the lettuce as a garnish.
Take one half of avocado. Remove pit and slice avocado thinly inside the shell.
Using a spatula, place burger patty on top of cucumber layer.
Use spatula to carefully top burger with caramelized onion.
Using a spoon or hand, place avocado slices on top of onions, with the flat side of the avocado facing down.
Drizzle olive oil on top of avocado and other layers.
Sprinkle matcha salt on avocado and a little on the cauliflower rice.
Add butter to the same frypan–fry egg "sunny side up".
Add diced cherry tomato, green onion, and ground pepper on top of egg.
*Be careful not to forget about the cauliflower rice! Speaking from experience... if you forget to stir, the bottom may burn.
