with cauliflower rice


Chicken Breast – 300g

Seafood (cooked selection) – 200g

Cauliflower – 1 Medium Sized (chopped finely)

Oil Spray

Stock – 1 Cube in 1 Cup of Water

Onion – 1 Whole Diced

Peas – 1 Cup

Red Pepper – 1 Whole (diced)

Coriander – 2tbs (roughly chopped)

Paprika – 2tbs

Chili Flakes – 1tsp

Garlic – 2 Cloves

Tomato Puree – 1tbs

Lemon – Squeeze to Serve

Salt and Pepper


Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium/high heat with a few sprays of low cal cooking spray. Add the onion to the pan and cook until soft along with the garlic, then toss in the chicken and sizzle until golden brown. Next add the chili and paprika along with the red pepper stirring until the spices are mixed evenly.

After a little while, when the peppers are softening, put the cauliflower rice, tomato puree and a cup of stock into the pan leaving to simmer on low heat for 5 mins. Then add the peas, seafood and a good amount of seasoning (to taste) and leave for another 5 mins. After this time the ‘rice’ should have bite to it but absorbed the stock, if not leave to simmer a little longer. Once the Paella looks fluffy with a thick coating of sauce serve into two big bowls, add a squeeze of lemon if you fancy and enjoy!
