Lamb & vegetable curry with cauliflower rice

Today's post is a recipe from Jenny Philips, who specialises in supporting people with cancer through nutrition. She is running an Outsmart Cancer Cookery Masterclass with us in London on Sunday March 13th, you can book your tickets here. 

For those of you eating meat, this is a very easy to digest and totally delicious recipe. The flavours really come through and it has a mild heat from the chilli, but nothing too overpowering. Pulses such as chick peas can be substituted for a vegetarian option.

Cauliflower is the new star of the low carbohydrate world, and here it makes a great alternative to rice.
