Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until it resembles rice.

In a large frying pan or wok, fry bacon over high heat until crispy. Remove and set aside.

Tip eggs into the pan and tilt pan so the egg covers the base.

Cook for a couple of minutes, or until the egg is set. Remove, slice into thin strips and set aside.

Heat coconut oil in the pan over high heat, add onion and garlic and cook for a few minutes, or until softened.

Stir in prawns, mushrooms and ginger and cook for another few minutes.

Add okra and brussels sprouts and cook for 1 minute. Add cauliflower and cook for 2–3 minutes, or until tender.

Add bacon, egg, tamari, sprouts, spring onion, herbs and some salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes, or until everything is heated through and well combined.

Serve with coriander and a splash of fish sauce.

Note: Organic okra may be unavailable if not in season. A great alternative is zucchini.
