For the cauliflower rice

  • 0.5 head of cauliflower (300 g), food processed into small pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil (15 ml)
  • Salt to taste

For the Loco Moco

  • 0.5 lb of ground beef (225 g)
  • 1 Tablespoon of onion powder (7 g)
  • 1 Tablespoon of garlic powder (10 g)
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) coconut oil, plus more if needed
  • 1 onion (110 ml), peeled and sliced
  • 15 white button mushrooms (150 g)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons (16 g) arrowroot powder
  • 1 cup (240 ml) beef broth
  • 1/2 large avocado (100 g), sliced
  • 3 oz pickled beetroot, diced small (80 g) or 1 small beet boiled and peeled
  • 2 Tablespoons (2 g) parsley, to garnish


  1. After blitzing the cauliflower florets, place in a pan with the coconut oil and cook over a moderate heat for 8-12 minutes until cooked through, but not completely soft. Season with sea salt and set aside to keep warm.
  2. Combine the ground beef, onion powder, garlic powder and salt and form into two burger patty shapes. Heat the coconut oil in a pan and cook the patties on both sides until cooked to your liking. Remove and set aside to keep warm.
  3. Use the same pan and add a dash of coconut oil (if needed) and cook the onions over a moderate heat until softened. Add the garlic and mushrooms and increase the heat slightly to caramelize the mixture.
  4. Pour most of the beef broth into the pan. Reserve 1/4 cup of the broth and whisk with the arrowroot powder. When the mixture in the pan has reduced a bit, add in the arrowroot mixture and cook for 1-2 minutes more to reduce to a thick gravy.
  5. In the meantime, peel and slice the avocado and dice the beetroot.
  6. Serve the burger patty over the cauliflower rice (on which you have spooned the gravy) and top with the sliced avocado and diced beetroot.
  7. Garnish with parsley.
