CAULIFLOWER FRIED RICE WITH PRAWNS

CAULIFLOWER FRIED RICE WITH PRAWNS

Serves 4-6

A delicious healthy meal from our Nutrition Director, Louise Keats.

Switching white rice for cauliflower gives this dish a major vegetable boost as well as a serve of potassium, fibre, calcium and other goodness. This is a plant-based meal made with unrefined, wholefood ingredients, which is the healthiest way to eat. The prawns and eggs are both healthy sources of protein – prawns are also a source of omega-3 fats and selenium.
