Lower the heat of the pan to medium.

Add the grated carrot into the pan and continue stirring. Add splashes of broth as needed to prevent sticking.

Add cauliflower to the pan and continue to stir. Again adding splashes of broth as needed. Stir for a minute or two to combine everything well.

Continue to stir for a few minutes until the vegetables are cooked through to your liking. Adding final splashes of broth as needed.
