This side dish swaps out the traditionally used rice for cauliflower ‘rice’, keeping it really light and adding lots of flavour.

Ingredients

Cauliflower

750 g, cut into florets

Brown onion

2 medium, finely chopped

Carrot(s)

2 medium, finely chopped

Ground turmeric

½ tsp

Frozen green peas

½ cup(s), (60g)

Vegetable stock cube

½ individual, gluten-free variety, to make 150ml stock

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Process cauliflower in a food processor in batches until it resembles a rice consistency. Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-low heat. Cook onions and carrots, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until tender and light golden.
  3. Add turmeric, cook, stirring, for 1 minute until fragrant. Stir in the cauliflower, peas and stock. Increase heat to medium-high, cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates and cauliflower and peas are tender.

Notes

If you don’t have a food processor, grate cauliflower on the coarse side of a grater until it resembles rice, or save on prep time by purchasing cauliflower ‘rice’ from the fresh produce section or the freezer aisle in major supermarkets.
