Kedgeree : Made The Low Carb Way


Yes, this dish is so tasty, and made a nice change to start our day. Some Sunday's it's just nice to take things slowly ... today is one of them! A leisurely breakfast with tea for me and coffee for Eddie.

We hadn't had Kedgeree for a while, don't know why, but rectified it today. If you haven't tried this low carb recipe idea using cauliflower instead of rice we can recommend it.

It is a great meal, which can be served anytime of day. It is low in carbs, and if you are a diabetic, can help you keep those BG numbers to non diabetic, it is very tasty too.

Ingredients:
(serves 2)
1 small cauliflower, grated
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 table spoons of Patak's (or similar) Madras curry paste
3 boiled eggs (8 minutes in boiling water), quartered
250g smoked haddock, or unsmoked salmon is also good, poached in water for 5 minutes
Lots of finely chopped parsley, or coriander
Some lemon wedges to serve.

Method:
Fry the onion in olive oil or butter until soft. Add the curry paste and fry for 3-4 minutes more. Now add the grated cauliflower and cook until all the ingredients are well coloured, maybe 8-10 minutes.
Add the flaked fish, then the herbs and finally the eggs.
Salt and pepper to taste, then spoon onto warmed plates with the lemon wedges.

Delicious - make a note to myself - we really must have this more often!

All the best Jan

Many, many years ago I spent quite a bit of time on merchant ships going to and from West Africa and kedgeree was pretty standard fare, the traditional version with rice, however, and I loved it. The African cooks used to add some fabulous spices and it was always hot. Haven't had it in years - in fact hadn't even thought of it until this post reminded me. I might be tempted to try the version with cauliflower but if I could get a bowl of the stuff a cook nicknamed Lucky used to serve up I would be a happy man!

I love the idea of subbing cauliflower for rice.
Sleep well.

Margaret-whiteangel said...

Odd word to me.
Cauliflowers are in plenty down here at the moment.

Iris Flavia said...

Slow mornings are the best! And eggs a must :-)
Just the fish... I know it´s healthy but I just don´t like salmon.

"Lovely Jan. Is there a way of turning into vegan meal?"

Hello Bob, yes there is ...
I give links to two versions/recipes that may interest you (and others who enjoy vegan food)

https://www.rhiansrecipes.com/vegan-chickpea-kedgeree-gf/
with this recipe suggestion you could use rice or substitute it for cauliflower

http://theeverydayveggie.com/vegan-kedgeree-kichiri/
again instead of rice you could substitute cauliflower if you wish

Hope these may help

Many thanks to you and all others for their comments.
It's always good to receive, read and share.

Happy Monday

All the best Jan

William Kendall said...

I haven't heard of that dish before either.

Lee said...

I love smoked haddock. And, usually, out of tradition and habit...nor for religious reason...most always have it on Good Friday. A tradition that extends from my childhood years. :)

Denise inVA said...

Delicious Sounding. This is something I haven’t had in a very long time but I aim to rectify that. Thanks again Jan.
