454 gm Chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
227 gm Broccoli, raw
1 2/3 kg Green/yellow string beans, frozen
1 medium Yellow onion (finely chopped)
9 1/2 tbsp Butter, vegan
766 gm Coconut cream
1 tbsp Red curry paste
1 pepper(s) Red Thai chili pepper (finely chopped or grated)
1 tbsp minced Ginger root (fresh)
1 pinch Salt and pepper (to taste)
758 gm Cauliflower
1/2 tbsp Turmeric, powder (optional)


  1. 1 Melt butter or coconut oil in a pan.
  2. 2 Fry finely chopped onion, ginger and chili pepper until they become fragrant and softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3 Add curry paste and chicken. Fry until chicken is light brown (5–10 minutes). Add more butter or oil if needed.
  4. 4 Chop broccoli and green beans and add to the pan.
  5. 5 Add the coconut cream or milk—only the solid part; discard most of the excess liquid (or save it to make smoothies)—season and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  6. 6 While the chicken is simmering, prepare the low-carb cauliflower rice.
  7. 7 Using a grater or food processor fitted with a metal blade, grate the entire cauliflower head, including the stem.
  8. 8 Melt butter or coconut oil in a skillet. Add the cauliflower rice and cook over medium heat for 5-10 minutes, or until the rice has softened a bit.
  9. 9 Add salt and optional turmeric while frying.
  10. 10 You can also cook the rice in the microwave. Put the rice in a glass bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave it for 5-6 minutes. Mix in the butter or coconut oil and let it melt.
