  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (optional)
  • 400g can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 400g can brown lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 400g can diced tomatoes
  • 1 red capsicum
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 600g cauliflower
  • 200g baby spinach leaves
  • 1 bunch coriander, chopped
  • 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

Diced the onion finely and chop the capsicum roughly into 1 cm pieces.

Step 2

Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a pan and place on medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5-mins or until lightly browned.

Step 3

Grate the carrot finely and add to the pan with the mince. Fry for 5-mins or until browned. Add the garlic and spices stirring until fragrant.

Step 4

Add the kidney beans and brown lentils, and stir until combined.

Step 5

Pour in the tomatoes, capsicum, Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste. Pour in 1 cup of water.

Step 6

Simmer over low-medium heat for 20 minutes or until thick.

Step 7

Meanwhile, roughly chop the cauliflower into florets and place it in a food processor. Pulse until it becomes a rice-like consistency. Sauté the cauliflower rice in a large pan over medium heat in 1 tbsp oil. Stir consistently for 5 mins or until rice is slightly soft.

Step 8

To serve, divide spinach evenly into bowls or containers. Top with the cauliflower rice and beef chilli. Finish with a squeeze of lime and a generous sprinkle of coriander. Add some chilli flakes for an extra kick!
