  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1 red capsicum, diced

  • Heat a large saucepan over medium heat and melt butter.  Add in onion, garlic, ginger and cauliflower.  Cook stirring every few minutes until onion is translucent and cauliflower softens.  You can put the lid on during the process if you want your cauliflower soft but I didn’t.
  • Add in all your spices and stir for 1 min to bring out the aromatics.  Add chicken and stir to sear on all sides.
  • Pour in rice and cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add in capsicum, corn, diced tomatoes or passata, tomato paste and chicken broth.  Cover and cook for 20-30 mins stirring every 10 mins until the rice has soaked up the broth.
  • Add spinach and coconut cream and cook until spinach has wilted.
  • You might like to add some chilli flakes and season as necessary.  Serve warm and garnish with parsley or coriander.

    Family loved it! …even my 11yo fussy one. I added in some carrots and parsnip when frying up the cauliflower. Then set aside while I fried the chicken. Thanks for sharing
