Ingredients

Process

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. FOR THE MASHED CAULIFLOWER
  2. Start by removing the leafy part of the stem, and roughly chop the head of cauliflower. It’s okay to include the rest of the stem since the cauliflower will be steamed and blended.
  3. Steam chopped cauliflower using your method of choice. I recommend a stovetop method.
  4. Add steamed cauliflower to a blender or food processor. You can also do this with an immersion blender or by hand, but I find the blender and food processor to be the simplest and tends to yield the best consistency.
  5. Add nutritional yeast (optional to provide a cheesy flavor), gelatin (to provide a thicker texture), about 1-2 tsp sea salt, and 1 Tbsp coconut milk. You’ll want to start with just 1 Tbsp coconut milk, but you’ll likely need more depending on how much moisture is retained in your cauliflower.
  6. Blend until smooth. Increase coconut milk by the tablespoon until desired consistency is reached. Be sure to test cauliflower to make sure it’s salted to your liking.
  7. FOR THE MUSHROOMS
  8. Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium low heat.
  9. Slice mushrooms in half and add to sauté pan. Cook slowly over low heat for the flavors to fully develop.
  10. When the mushrooms are well cooked, pour in the Coconut Aminos to deglaze the pan and develop a caramelization on the outside of the mushrooms.
  11. Remove from heat and sprinkle with a bit of coarse sea salt while the glaze is still wet.
  12. FOR THE BACON
  13. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  14. Lay bacon on a rimmed, parchment lined baking sheet. Cook until crisp, about 12-15 minutes.
  15. Remove bacon from cooking sheet and set aside to cool on a paper towel. This will absorb extra grease. Reserve the grease left on the baking sheet and store in an airtight jar in the fridge to use for cooking.
  16. Once bacon has cooled, rough chop and store until use.
  17. ASSEMBLY
  18. Divide ingredients among 2 bowls, and drizzle with olive or avocado oil. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
  19. These ingredients can be prepped the day before and reheated for a quick breakfast bowl, or eaten straight from the fridge.
