Substitute cauliflower for plain old white rice to up the vegetable count, either as a bed for a curry, or in this twist on fried rice.



1.Process cauliflower in batches in a food processor until very finely chopped.
2.Heat half the oil in a wok over high heat until smoking. Add egg and stir vigorously until completely dry and broken up (1-2 minutes), then transfer to a plate. Add remaining oil to wok with garlic and ginger and stir-fry until fragrant (30 seconds), add beans and stir-fry until starting to become tender (1-2 minutes), then add cauliflower and fish sauce and stir-fry until cauliflower starts to soften (2-3 minutes). Return egg to pan, season to taste with Maggi seasoning and white pepper, and squeeze in lime juice to taste.
3.Top with spring onion, chilli and coriander, and serve with extra lime wedges.

Maggi seasoning is available from Asian grocers and select supermarkets.
