A tasty midweek meal with a healthy twist - swap out basmati rice for a light alternative made by blitzing cauliflower florets. Combine with king prawns cooked in garlic, chilli and ginger, and spring onions, pepper, courgette and peas for a veg packed main.

  1. Whizz the caulifower in a food processor until it resembles rice. Heat half the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat and cook half each of the garlic, chilli and ginger for 1 minute. Stir in the prawns and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove and keep warm.
  2. Heat the remaining oil over a medium heat and cook the spring onions, pepper and courgette ribbons for 3 minutes. Add the caulifower rice and remaining garlic, chilli and ginger and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add the peas and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Combine the dressing ingredients, then serve drizzled over the caulifower rice and prawns. Garnish with coriander.
