Cauliflower Fried Rice

{ “I LOVE THIS RECIPE. THE USE OF CAULIFLOWER INSTEAD OF RICE BRINGS A LIGHTNESS, AS WELL AS A UNIQUE FLAVOUR AND TEXTURE. IT IS WONDERFUL AS A MAIN OR A SIDE DISH,” ANGIE DAY. }

{ INGREDIENTS }

1 tablespoon ghee or coconut oil

1 medium Spanish onion, finely diced

1 medium cauliflower

1 medium carrot, peeled and finely diced

1 medium zucchini, finely diced

1 tablespoon ginger, finely grated

1-2 cloves garlic, finely grated

Pinch cayenne pepper

Juice ½ lemon (2 tablespoons)

2 tablespoons tamari

2 tablespoons coconut cream

½ bunch fresh coriander, well chopped

Olive oil to drizzle

Himalayan or Celtic sea salt to taste

Pepper to taste

{ METHOD }

Cook onions in a large frying plan on medium heat till soft (approximately 5 minutes).

Meanwhile, cut the cauliflower into manageable pieces and then, using the large side of the grater, grate the cauliflower to resemble rice-size granules. You can also use a food processor to mill it into shape.

Add cauliflower, carrot, zucchini, garlic, ginger, cayenne pepper and tamari to the onions in the frying pan. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the carrot is just soft.

Add lemon juice, coriander, coconut cream and season with salt and pepper.

For best results serve immediately with a good drizzle of olive oil.

 

Optional (non-vegan) extra: Add sliced-up omelette.

Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry

{ A CLASSIC NORTH INDIAN LENTIL DISH, THIS CAN BE DRAMATIC LOOKING, AS THE YELLOW LENTILS STAND OUT FROM THE SMALLER BLACK PULSES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS LUSCIOUS AND DELICIOUS. ONCE THE LENTILS SOFTEN, THE MORE YOU STIR THEM THE CREAMIER THEY BECOME. LENTILS AND BUTTER GO REALLY WELL TOGETHER, SO I DO RECOMMEND YOU ADD A LITTLE BUTTER AT THE END BEFORE SERVING. THIS IS GREAT WITH RICE OR INDIAN BREADS. }
