Make It Leaner
Stretch this dish into 3  servings by adding an extra ½ cup [1 cup] water in Step 4. The portions will be just as satisfying and nourishing at only 400 calories per serving, and you’ll have lunch ready for the next day.
Coconut milk is made from the white meat of the coconut, finely ground and soaked in water. As it soaks, a layer of coconut cream rises to the top and is then skimmed off, while the remaining liquid is strained. It’s a popular base for Thai-style curries such as this one.
Organic cauliflower “rice” is still a scarce commodity, so you may receive organic whole cauliflower, broccoli crowns, or broccoli “rice” instead. For broccoli “rice,” which is made from the stems, follow the recipe as written. For whole cauliflower or broccoli crowns, cut the vegetable lengthwise into quarters, discarding any leaves or thick stalks. Using a food processor fitted with the grater attachment, or the coarse holes of a box grater, coarsely grate. Alternatively, using a knife, cut the florets into ¼-inch pieces. Then follow the recipe as written.
