Quick and Easy Low Carb Meal: Cauliflower Fried Rice With Peppers & Prawns

I can’t get over how quickly it is to make this meal, I just posted this on Instagram (@Adura_O), and had to share the recipe here with you. So before you you say healthy eating is time consuming and expensive, just read on!

I went for a 1.5 hour walk on Sunday, yes ME, the-one-who-hates-walking went for a long walk. 
Things are happening! :p 
Huge thanks to my friends at Fitter London for organising a bank holiday walk on Saturday, it was so much fun and inspired me to download ‘Striiv’, a pedometer type app. 
There’s a a competitive edge to it thanks to the ‘Leaderboard’ feature, love it! Some of my friends walk over 20,000 daily, not me …YET! 
My aim is 10,000 steps daily and as you can see –>
I have a lot of walking left to do today. 
Oops I’m getting carried away as always!

Back to the reason for this post! While on my Sunday walk, I found a farmers market in Alexandra Palace, woohoo! I had some money on me (in case of emergency) and bought some fresh, locally grown produce including cauliflower and bell peppers, which inspired this very simple meal.


Cauliflower (1/2 a head)

Red Bell Pepper (1)
Prawns (1 cup)
Onion (1/4)
Coconut Oil (1 tbsp)
Curry powder (1 tsp)
Salt (to taste)

Serves: 1-2 (I ate it all on my own!)

  1. Wash and grate the cauliflower (for more info on this, read: http://www.adura-o.com/2013/04/nigerian-twist-on-cauliflower-rice-from.html).
  2. Wash and chop up the red pepper and onion.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a pan, and brown the onions. Season the prawns with the curry, parsley, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Add the prawns and pan fry for a few minutes until they start to turn pink. Add the peppers and stir fry until prawns are completely pink. Remove from pan and set aside.
  5. Add the grated cauliflower, add a pinch of salt and stir for 3-5 minutes.
  6. Add the prawns and peppers, stir for a short time, turn heat down to low and leave to simmer for 5 minutes.
  7. Eat!
