Beef Chilli with Cauliflower rice - You will need...

For the Chilli:

1 tbsp x Coconut oil/ olive oil

1 x Onion, chopped

500g x Beef / Turkey Mince

1 x Garlic Cloves, grated

1 tsp x Ground cumin

1 tsp x Ground coriander

1 tsp x Cayenne pepper

1 ½ tbsp x Tomato puree

1 x Kallo Beef organic gluten free stock cube

1 tin x Kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Salt to taste

Water to cover and simmer

For the Cauli rice:

1 cauliflower, coarsely grated by hand or in a food processor

2-4 x tbsp water

Salt and pepper, to taste

 

1          To make the Chilli:

Take a large frying pan/ wok and gently fry the chopped onion until soft (takes about 8-10 minutes, over a medium heat), after 8-10 minutes add the tomato puree and grated garlic, mix through and cook out for a few minutes.  Remove from pan and place to the side until needed.

2          Turn up the heat a little (now medium to high), and brown the beef mince.  Reduce the heat (to medium), add the spices, the onion, garlic and tomato mix and stir well. Add kidney beans and cover all ingredients with water. Crumble in a stock cube. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer.  Let it cook for at least 20-30 minutes to allow all flavours to combine.  Gets better the longer you cook it for (also great the next day!).

3          To make the Cauliflower rice:

Remove the leaves and the tough end of the stalk.  Coarsely grate by hand or in the food processor into rice sized pieces.

4          Add to a frying pan with a dash of olive oil/ coconut oil and 2-4 tbsp water, and allow to steam for 3-4 minutes until tender.  Strain. Add salt and pepper to taste.

 

To serve:

Pile up the Cauliflower rice and top with Chilli

 

Optional serving ideas:

Serve with lime or lemon wedges, whichever you have to hand

Sliced Avocado (if you have some that need using up) or a tbsp of guacamole

Sliced Jalapeno’s, for an extra kick

Fresh Coriander leaves

1 tbsp x sour cream

 

Subs or Cheats:

Sub onions for leeks

Sub beef mince for turkey mince

Sub kidney beans for frozen peas, if you don’t have any

Sub beef mince for beef blade and cook low and slow until it falls apart

No cauliflower? Sub it for broccoli rice instead... made in the same way... get those greens in!

Cheat use ready chopped frozen onions
