Lamb Curry & Cauliflower Rice

Bee's recipe said to use cooked lamb, I didn't have any, I did have fresh diced lamb so that's what I used.
This is what I did: I fried the onions and garlic, added diced meat and spices, browned this off then added the coconut milk. Simmered for 30 minutes then added the diced butternut squash, cooked for a further 15 minutes until it's soft, add a handfull of spinach put the lid on for 2 minutes then stir in. I served it with cauliflower rice. This isn't Bee's recipe but I did get the idea off the Pig2Twig web site. I grated the cauli in the proccesor, melted butter in a wok, added a heaped teaspoon of cumin added the cauli and stir fried for 3 minutes at the last minute I threw in a handful of slivered almonds, stir through to heat. Half way through the meal, Paul asked if it was coconut rice!!! He didn't miss the rice at all he just thought it had cauliflower in it! How good is that?! Look at the picture, it actually looks like rice. I will be definately doing this again!

all this food looks so good Julie. I bought the cookbook. Now I just have to read it and see what I can use to apply it to my lifestyle and budget! I can't wait to try the Avocado Bacon Melt!

Peridot - It had the texture of rice but didn't leave us feeling bloated like white rice does. You must try it!
