  • 8 slices streaky bacon, chopped into small squares (fry half and use for garnish)
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped in half
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 red chilli seeds removed

  • 50g flour
  • 200g chicken stock
  • 200g milk

Put cubed cheese into TMX bowl and grate 7 seconds speed 8, remove and  SET ASIDE.

Place chopped up cauliflower into TMX bowl and mince reverse speed 5 for 4 seconds remove and set aside

Place onion, celery, garlic, chilli in TMX bowl and chop 5 seconds speed 6. Scrap sides down and chop again 2 seconds speed 6

Add bacon and sauté for 3 minutes 100d speed 1 (I didn’t add oil as streaky bacon has enough fat on it)

Add cauliflower, flour, chicken stock, milk, half the grated cheese, salt and pepper and cook for 20 minutes 100 degrees speed 1.5. 

When cooked spoon into bowls and top with grated cheese, green onion tops and crispy bacon bits.
