Ingredients

  • 700 g (25 oz) chicken breasts
  • 1 onion
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (I recommend this one)
  • 200 g (7 oz) carrot
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp salt (I recommend this one)
  • pinch of turmeric
  • 1 large cauliflower
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • basil

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, heat up the oil and sauté finely chopped onion until translucent.
  2. Then, add in diced chicken breasts.
  3. Mix thoroughly, add a little water, cover and stew for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Finally, add in spices, salt, lemon juice and coarsely grated carrot.
  5. Cook everything together for another 5 minutes and then turn off the heat.
  6. In the meantime, cut the cauliflower into florets and blend it into "rice". If desired, we can cut the cauliflower into small pieces using a knife, but a finer result will be achieved using a food processor.
  7. Place the chopped cauliflower into a deeper pan, add 2 tablespoons of water, season with salt, spices and cook it for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until it begins to catch the golden color.
  8. Finally, remove the cauliflower "rice" from the heat and serve it together with meat.
