Serves 2

1 tbsp of Niulife Cocomino Fysh Sauce
1 tbsp of Cocomino Original 
1 tbsp of fresh ginger
Juice of 1 lime

1 tablespoon of coconut oil
1 cauliflower head (pulsed into rice)
1.5 cups of sliced green beans
1 red chilli (chopped)
1 spring onion
Pink Himalayan Salt

1 bunch of bok choy (thoroughly washed and chopped)
100 g of bean shoots
1 Lebanese cucumber (sliced into rounds)

1 tbsp of black nigella seeds
2 tbsp of fried shallots
2 tbsp coconut flakes
1 sliced Spring onion
1 sliced red Chilli

2 tbsp of sambal oelek
1 tbsp of Niulife Cocomino Fysh Sauce
2 tbsp of Cocomino Original 
3 tbsp of rice wine vinegar
Juice of 1 lime


Pulse a head of a cauliflower until a rice consistency (this can also be purchased as cauliflower rice if you are time poor!) Cut the tempeh in 2cm squares (ensure the tempeh is not too thick). Marinate the tempeh in the Fysh Sauce, juice of one lime and fresh ginger. Set aside in fridge for at least 1 hour. To make the Nasi Goreng cauliflower, heat coconut oil in pan and add in cauliflower rice. Stir fry for 2 minutes and add in beans, spring onion and chilli. Add one tablespoon of the sauce to the cauliflower mixture and set the rest aside. Remove from heat. Toast coconut flake in a heat pan and set aside.

Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a pan on high. Add the tempeh to the hot coconut oil and fry for 3 minutes each side. Drain on paper towel and thread onto metal skewers. Steam the bok choy for 1 minutes and blanch into cold water to preserve colour. To arrange the nasi goreng bowl, add the cauliflower rice, bok choy, bean shoots and sliced cucumber. Sprinkle nigella seeds on the cucumber. Add the tempeh on the top of the nasi cauliflower. Top with toasted coconut, fried shallots and extra chilli and fresh spring onion. Add sauce onto side to dip skewers in.
