Delicious Cauliflower Rice

I was skeptical at first as to how this would turn out, however I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely be making it more often.  Blitz a whole lot of cauliflower (half to 3/4 of a medium one) in a food processor and keep it in a container in the fridge to use throughout the week in other dishes such as tabouleh.
Here’s my step by step guide for the rest:

1) Scramble 3 eggs in a large hot pan with a little butter, set aside and cut into chunks
2) Fry 1 onion (diced) in some coconut oil for a few minutes, then add in 4 rashers of bacon (diced)  until the bacon is crispy and the onion soft
3) Add in around 6 mushrooms (sliced or quartered), and chopped or minced garlic*
4) Season with ground coriander, ground cumin and some chili flakes (as much as you like!)
5) Add in 1.5 cups thawed (or fresh) peas into the pan and 1 tin corn kernels (or fresh) and cook on med-high heat for a few minutes
6) Stir through the scrambled eggs, that have been set aside
7) Add in about 2 cups of the blitzed cauliflower and fry for only a few minutes (any more than 2 mins and the cauli will go mushy)
8) season with some salt, pepper, a few drops of both sesame oil and soy sauce
9) top with some toasted cashews, chopped coriander, chives or mint

*You could also add in cooked prawns, leftover roast chicken, beans, broccoli or diced carrots in step 3*
