Cumin Rice in a Papaya Bowl

You Will Need (Serves 2)

This is 3pp/approx.200kcal per portion

(If you use wholegrain rice, this is great for a Filling and Healthy or Simple Start day).

1 papaya (room temperature)

62g Long grain rice

(I used 1 bag Uncle Ben's boil in the bag)

4 florets cauliflower, grated

2 teaspoons cumin seeds

Frylight oil


While the rice is boiling, prepare the papaya. Cut in half and scoop out the dark seeds with a teaspoon. Run a knife all around the edge to loosen the flesh from the skin, but leave in place.

Cut a small slice off the curved side of the papaya so that it sits beautifully on the plate.

Once the rice is cooked, pop into a frying pan with the grated cauliflower and cumin seeds. Fry in a little Frylight oil until toasted and crunchy in places.

Arrange carefully into the papaya 'bowls'.

I served mine with curry and half a WeightWatchers nan bread (4pp) for a delicious, filling and interesting experience.
