Kimchi is all the rage right now and for good reason, it’s so good for your gut health. It’s really important that we look after our guts and keep the healthy bacteria in check. Having a happy gut and super strong gut lining is the key to improved health. If you love it then you have to try this cauliflower rice recipe.

Packed so full of flavour, your tastebuds will be tango’ing that’s for sure!

Optionally, you can swap the eggs for your favourite side of protein. I love it with crispy chicken thighs or a piece of roast salmon. Speedy and tasty, it’s one you’ll make time and time again.

  3. Microwave for 5 minutes (or steam for 8 - 10 minutes until soft). Allow to cool then transfer to a muslin cloth and squeeze out the excess water. This is my top tip to get super fluffy cauliflower rice!

  6. Add the kimchi for another 1 - 2 minutes until sticky. Next, add the cauliflower rice to the kimchi mix and the juice.
  7. Turn off the heat. Stir through the coconut aminos. Add the lime juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat 1 tbsp of ghee or coconut oil in a non stick frying pan.
