A protein packed cauliflower rice recipe from snowboarder Helen Schettini


After breaking her legs 3 years in a row, Helen Schettini looked deep into her diet and nutrition for answers. She shared her experience and advice for healthy eating with Still Stoked in a previous interview and was super keen to share her favourite cauliflower rice recipe with us. A legend through and through (both on and off her snowboard), she cooked this up especially to share with us the next day – Thanks Helen!


“Cauliflower rice is a great substitute for rice or any other starch. You get so many good nutrients out of it and there’s egg involved so it could be a whole meal with that complete protein” – Helen Schettini
