Ingredients: 2 Heads Cauliflower. 5 Slices of thick Bacon. 1 lb Chicken Breast. 3 Eggs. 5 Garlic Cloves. Large Hunk of Ginger. 5-8 Scallions, 6 large Carrots. Basil or Cilantro, Unpasteurized Soy Sauce. Coconut Oil/Butter.
Remove cooked bacon to side dish. Leave grease to cook chicken. Pan should be quite hot.
Sizzle. Leave chicken to sit on same side until almost cooked through. Then flip. chicken should be somewhat browned on one side. This is that flavor we’ve been looking for. Cook other side 1-2 minutes until cooked through. Remove chicken to side dish, keep grease. Move that cauliflower around so it doesn’t burn. Brown without burn, soft without squishy. That’s what we’re aiming for. Add second chicken breast to pan with scallions and ginger. Saute. Once scallions soften and chickens almost cooked through. Add garlic. Remove to side dish and add coconut oil to pan to cook carrots. Carrots.Add 3-5 tbs soy sauce. Little for the chicken. Little for the cauliflower. Little more for the carrots. Little Salt and pepper. When cauliflower is soft and browned. Turn off heat.I added leftover garlic and green onion stems to carrots. Roll basil and chop into ribbons. Ready your three eggs. Cut the scallion greens to add with basil. Carrots are done when soften to level of preferred softness. Remove carrots to side dish. Scramble and add eggs. Scramble eggs. Add Basil and green onion greens. Mix in side dish. Return head to cauliflower. Mix it. Mix in with Cauliflower. So delicious and easy to reheat. Simply saute with a chunk of butter on medium heat until hot. Skip the microwave.
