1/2 a head of cauliflower (roughly chopped - use florets as well as the stems)
2 rashers of bacon (diced) (sugar free for whole30 recipe)
2 eggs (lightly whisked in a small bowl)
1 tblspn of coconut oil
1 small carrot (diced)
1/2 cup of peas (substitute cut up green beans for whole30 recipe)
corn (cut from one cob) (leave out for whole30 recipe)
tamari or coconut aminos to taste
extra coconut oil for frying
Put the roughly cut cauliflower into a blender or food processor and just pulse until you have finely cut cauliflower, it will resemble grains of rice. I have even done this by hand with knife and chopping board but it took a bit longer!
Put your carrot, corn and peas into a steamer and have them steaming while you are doing the other steps below. Don't overcook so once water is boiling, steam for around 7-10 mins
Put your coconut oil into a wok or frypan on medium heat and add cauliflower. Saute until soft (about 7 mins) Remove and place in a large steel or glass bowl.
Add a little more coconut oil, if needed, and add bacon to wok/frypan (also onion and celery at this stage if you are adding that) and fry for around 5 mins, add to bowl of set aside cauliflower
Pop a little extra coconut oil, if needed, in your wok/frypan and slowly pour in your whisked eggs and make a thin omelette, flip once, remove when just cooked and cut into fine strips, add to bowl with other ingredients.
Add your steamed veg whenever they are done. Add your finely shredded roast chicken at this stage (optional) Stir together and splash with tamari (I use quite a few good glugs but add to your liking!)
Add cauliflower to bowl, chop for 2 seconds on speed 5, scrape down sides and chop for another 1-2 seconds if you think it needs more then leave in thermomix bowl
Add coconut oil and bacon (and celery and onion if you are adding those) and cook for 9 minutes at 100 on reverse at mixing speed
Once this is done, tip all ingredients into large glass or steel bowl and set aside
Rinse thermomix bowl and fill with enough water to boil. Put your carrot, corn and peas in the bottom varoma tray and then your eggs in the top varoma tray. Place baking paper in the top tray so your eggs don't run through it! To make your baking paper easier to lie flat in this tray, simply scrunch into a little ball and then flatten out again, you should find it much more cooperative this way 🙂 Cook on varoma setting at speed 1 for 12 mins.
Add your steamed veggies to your other ingredients in bowl, slice up your egg omelette into thin strips and add this also
Stir it all through with a few good glugs of tamari and stir in your finely shredded chicken (if you are adding this)
Serve and enjoy!
