Curry Chicken Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 Tbs ginger root, finely minced or grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 6 mushrooms

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 2 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1 (403 mL) can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 Tbs lemon juice
  • 4 Tbs fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, diced
  • 1/4 red onion, diced

Cauliflower Rice Ingredients

  • 1 medium sized head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 tsp ground curry powder
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • sea salt and ground black pepper

  1. Mix the ginger root, garlic, cumin, coriander, cayenne, cardamom, cloves, sea salt, and black pepper in a large bowl.

  7. While the chicken is cooking, wash and rough chop the cauliflower.
  8. Place it in a large skillet with coconut or olive oil and cook over medium high heat until slightly softened.
  9. Place the cauliflower, curry powder, green onion, and cayenne into a food processor and pulse until it has a grainy rice-like consistency. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  10. Serve chicken curry over cauliflower rice and garnish with chopped cilantro, cucumber, and red onion.
