  • 4 cups cauliflower rice (1 small cauliflower) (100g)
  • salt and pepper
  • zest of 2 limes
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 4 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon shredded coconut
  • Fresh cilantro and a red chili pepper to garnish (optional)


  • Heat a large skillet on a medium heat.
  • Add in the cauliflower rice, a few pinches of salt and pepper, lime zest and juice and the coconut milk.
  • Mix together using a spoon and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft.
  • Stir in the coconut flakes.
  • Garnish and serve.


  • If making your own cauliflower rice, don't over process it. It just needs to be pulsed a few times or it will turn liquidy.
  • Don't overcook the cauliflower rice or it will become soggy. It just needs to be soft and heated through.
  • Taste before serving and adjust salt and pepper if required.
