  • ½ cauliflower
  • ½ zucchini
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 bell pepper, red
  • 2 tbsp fajita spice mix (or 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp paprika and ¼ tsp salt)
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ red onion (diced)
  • 2 tomato (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • ¼ cup cilantro/coriander, fresh
  • 1 clove garlic (grated)


  • Blitz half a medium cauliflower head in a food processor (remove the leaves first). Add the now cauliflower-rice to a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 3 minutes in a 1000w microwave. Alternatively lay the rice on a baking tray and roast it in an oven for 12 minutes at 200°C/390°F, stirring once halfway-through. Add a dash of salt at the end, if desired.
  • Chop the zucchinicarrot and red bell pepper into thin slices. Fry them in oil on medium heat for about 12 minutes, adding a little fajita spice mix. If you don’t have a spice mix to hand simply add 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp paprika and ¼ tsp salt.
  • Make some guacamole. You can do this by destoning an avocado and mashing it in a bowl. Dice half a red onion and add that, too. Chop and add two small tomatoes. Add a little salt, pepper and 2 tbsp lemon juice. Optionally add a few coriander leaves, grated garlic and/or a chopped red pepper. Give it a good stir.
  • Arrange everything nicely in your bowl, adding some creme fraiche, grated cheese and a few crispy salad leaves. Done!
