Eating curry is amazing because it’s so full of flavor and because that flavor often comes from some of the healthiest ingredients out there. This recipe includes turmeric, ginger, coconut milk and lime. Rice is swapped out for cauliflower, which is a wonderful substitute, while spinach gives a punch of iron. Enjoy!

Ginger + Lime Cauliflower Rice Ingredients

  • 1 cauliflower, outer leaves discarded and roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 3 tablespoon water


1. In a food processor or blender blend the coriander stalks, red curry paste, coconut milk, tomato purée and turmeric.

2. Heat the coconut oil in a pan over a medium heat for 1 minute. Put the onions into the pan. Sauté them for 5 minutes with a pinch of salt. Add the squash and stir-fry for 1 minute, then pour in the blended mix, bring to a simmer and let this cook for 10 minutes. Add the green beans and spinach and cook for another 20 minutes until the pumpkin is cooked through.


3. Meanwhile, make the Ginger + Lime Rice. Put the roughly chopped cauliflower into a food processor and process for a few minutes until you get a rice-like consistency.

4. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan, and throw in the lime zest with the ginger and coriander. Stir for 30 seconds, then add the cauliflower, 3 tablespoons water and the juice of the lime. Cook for 5 minutes, until cooked through.

5. Scatter the cilantro leaves over the curry with a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and serve with the ‘rice’.
