  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½
  • onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 600g lamb, cubed
  • 4 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 turnips, diced
  • 800ml coconut milk

  • For the rice:
  • 1 small head cauliflower

  • Melt the coconut oil in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Add the lamb and sear before adding the tomatoes, turnips and coconut milk to the pan. Simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes.

  • Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and add the garlic. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the cauliflower and cook for 5-7 minutes, or until al dente.

  • Add the courgettes to the pan with the lamb and continue to cook for a further 5 minutes.

  • Season with salt and pepper, top with the coriander and serve over the cauliflower rice.
