Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup diced onion (65 grams)
  • 2 large carrots, roughly diced (1 cup/144 grams)
  • 1 large bell pepper, roughly diced (1 3/4 cups/150 grams)
  • 2 cups cauliflower rice (200 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons garlic powder, divided
  • 1 teaspoon coriander, divided
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, divided
  • 2 cans Tandoori Safe Catch Tuna
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup full fat coconut milk (solid part from the top of the can)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • optional toppings: yogurt, avocado, fresh cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray/grease an 8x6 baking dish (or similar size) with avocado oil and set aside.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add avocado and let it get hot, about 30 seconds. Once hot, add onion and carrots and sauté for 1-2 mins until softened. Add red pepper, cauliflower rice, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon coriander, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, and salt and pepper. Cook for another 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until veggies are slightly softened, but still have some firmness.
  • Once mixture is done, remove from heat. Add tuna to the pan, including the juices from the can, and mix well.
  • In a medium size bowl whisk the eggs. Add coconut flour and whisk to make sure no clumps remain. Add coconut milk, remaining spices, and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Add tuna mixture to greased baking dish. Add egg mixture and mix until everything is thoroughly combined (I like to use a fork to make sure liquid mixture evenly distributes).
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes until browned and cooked through. Let cool for a few minutes and then top with optional toppings.
  • Enjoy!
