Coconut Veggie Stir-fry With Cauliflower Rice From Ketotarian

Dr Will Cole’s revolutionary Ketotarian programme harnesses the fat-burning power of keto, but with the nutritious, delicious benefits of a mostly plant-based plate.

PREP: 10 minutes COOK: 15 minutes


300g fresh cauliflower florets
350g fresh broccoli florets
5 small pattypan squash, trimmed and quartered
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
50g thin slivers red onion
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, minced
175ml full-fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon liquid aminos
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
½ teaspoon coarse salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons refined coconut oil
4 tablespoons unsweetened large coconut flakes, toasted
2 tablespoons snipped fresh coriander

1  Place the cauliflower in the container of a food processor. Cover and pulse until the cauliflower is finely chopped (about the size of rice). Set aside.

2  In a large wok, stir-fry the broccoli and squash in the sesame oil over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are crisp-tender. Reduce the heat to medium if the vegetables brown too quickly. Add the onion and stir-fry for 2 minutes more. Transfer the vegetables to a bowl; cover to keep warm.

3  To the same wok, add the ginger and garlic. Cook and stir over medium-low heat for 30 seconds. Carefully add the coconut milk, liquid aminos, vinegar, 1⁄4 teaspoon salt, and 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, or until the sauce is slightly thickened.

4  Meanwhile, in a large frying pan heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice, the remaining 1⁄4 teaspoon salt, and the remaining 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the cauliflower is just tender and starting to brown.

5  Return the vegetables to the wok. Cook and stir for 1 minute to heat through. Spoon the caulifl ower rice evenly onto two serving plates. Top with the broccoli mixture and sauce. Sprinkle with the coconut and coriander.
