Mashed cauliflower breakfast bowl (with gelatine)

This recipe is paleo friendly and contains gelatine which is great for healing the gut – the root cause of health issues of many kinds.  It comes from grassfedsalsa.com, and is a little unusual but worth a try.  You can make all aspects ahead of time and reheat in the morning for a quick meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 1/2 cups whole baby portobello mushrooms 
  • 4 cups fresh arugula/greens/rocket
  • 6-8 slices of bacon
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (you’ll add this 1 Tbsp at a time, and may not use it all)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos/bone broth 
  • 1 Tbsp gelatine powder
  • 1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil (I suggest reserving some grease from the bacon, but you can also use ghee, coconut oil, or avocado oil)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt to taste
  • coarse sea salt (for finishing)

Method

  • Grill bacon and allow to cool, then chop into small pieces (night before is fine)
  • Steam cauliflower and blend in a food processor
  • Add nutritional yeast, gelatine and 1-2 teaspoons of salt, and 1 tsp coconut milk at a time as you blend further until smooth to your liking.  Add more salt if desired
  • Halve the mushrooms and saute in a pan with some oil, adding the coconut aminos to glaze them, then sprinkle with some salt and remove from heat
  • If greens need cooking, steam quickly in a shallow pan and drain
  • Divide all ingredients between 2 bowls, drizzle with olive oil and salt as desired
