  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 400 g tin black beans, drained (240g, or ~ 1 1/4 cups, when drained)
  • 100 g (~ 2/3 cup) tinned sweetcorn
  • 3 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp hot chilli powder
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • 50 g cheddar cheese, grated (~ 1/2 cup when grated)
  • Toppings, to serve: your choice of sliced avocado, fresh coriander (cilantro), spring onions, sour cream, salsa, etc.


  • Remove the leaves from the cauliflower, and cut the cauliflower itself into florets. Place in a food processor, and blitz until it resembles rice.
  • Place the cauliflower rice in the Actifry with a drizzle of oil. Cook for 20 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
  • Scrape down the sides of the Actifry, and add the black beans, sweetcorn, spring onions, spices, and seasoning. Cook for a further 10 minutes, then add the cheese, and cook for 5 more minutes. Scrape down the sides of the Actifry again, and serve with your choice of toppings.
