Mexican Rice Ingredients:

Half a cauliflower
Half an onion, diced
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1tsp smoked paprika
1tsp ground cumin
1tsp ground coriander
1 red capsicum (bell pepper), diced
½ an avocado, stone removed
1 hard-boiled egg

Mexican Rice How To:

Place the cauliflower florets into the food processor, and blitz until the texture resembles rice.

Heat the coconut oil in a non stick saucepan to a medium heat. Add the onion, and fry for a couple of minutes until golden. Add the cauliflower, garlic and the spices, and fry for another minute or so, taking care not to burn. Add the diced red capsicum (bell pepper), combine well and remove from the heat.

When cooled, transfer the rice to your lunch box. Dice the avocado (rub with a little lemon juice to stop it browning if you like) and the hard boiled egg and add to the rice. Keep in the fridge until you’re ready to go!
