This broccoli rice is a midweek vegie wonder! It’s incredibly rich in minerals such as iron and magnesium, vitamins and fibre from green vegetables such as broccoli, kale, spinach and coriander, which balance beautifully with the protein, choline, vitamin B12, vitamin D and scrumptious flavour in free-range eggs. If kids are at the table and you’re not yet convinced they’ll go the whole broccoli rice meal then simply swap out half the broccoli for some cooked brown or jasmine rice.

Serves: 4



  • 2 small heads broccoli
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 6 free-range eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
