Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Place caulifower in bowl and chop on spd 6 for 1-2 secs to create a rice-like texture. Remove from bowl and place aside. Rinse bowl.

    2. Place red onion, garlic and leek in bowl. Chop for 3 secs on spd 7. Scrape sides and add coconut oil. Saute for 2 1/2 mins on 100C spd 1.

    3. Add capsicum and celery. Chop on spd 5 for 1-2 secs. Scrape down sides and add all herbs and spices. Saute on 100C, spd 1 for 1 1/2mins. 

    4. Add caulifower, bay leaf, stock and 400g water to TM.

    5. Place mixed veggies onto varoma tray, along with beaten egg. With the egg, wet some baking paper and scrunch it up to create a wall and place egg inside. Place varoma on TM.

    6. Cook for 20mins, Varoma, reverse and speed 1.

    7. Remove Varoma. I use the splatula to cut up my egg whilst still in the varoma. Then place veggies and cut egg in thermoserver.

    8. Empty the cauliflower mixture into the basket to strain all the excess water. Let it sit for a minute or two, until most of the water is drained.

    9. Place contents of basket in thermoserver and mix with cooked egg and mixed vegetables.

    10. Serve.

    Hi there, my question is why wouldn't you good the cauli in the steamer basket to make sure it keeps its shape and not turn to soup? I like these ideas in your recipe. Thankyou! Will give it a go.

    this worked out, but not enough flavour for me. I also thought the texture would be courser.... maybe I just like my carbs too much  tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Thanks for the recipe...I

    Thanks for the recipe...I added a bit of shortcut bacon that I had cooked in the microwave (forgot to add to the TMX) and seasoned with tamari sauce at the end. I really liked it! I also put a tbsp of veg stock paste in with the cauliflower while cooking and omitted the salt. A really healthy meal and it was very filling.
