This recipe is part of Joe Wicks' The Body Coach fitness plan. Protein forms the basis of the meals – and portion sizes are large, which is offset by the high-intensity exercise in the plan. / Recipe photograph by Kris Kirkham

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 spring onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 red chilli, roughly chopped – remove the seeds if you don’t like it hot
  • 6 baby sweetcorn, cut in half lengthways
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 2 tsp piri piri seasoning, or according to taste (it can be very spicy)
  • 100g tinned black-eyed beans, drained and rinsed
  • 150g pre-cooked rice
  • a large handful of baby spinach leaves
  • 1 large clove garlic, chopped
  • about 200g peeled raw king prawns
  • a lemon wedge, to serve

Step by step

Get ahead
The recipe can be made ahead and eaten cold the next day.
  1. Heat half of the coconut oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the spring onions, chilli, sweetcorn and tomato and stir-fry for about 1 minute. Add the piri piri seasoning and stir-fry for 30 seconds, then add the black-eyed beans, along with 2 tablespoons water. Add the rice, crumbling it between your fingers as you drop it in, then stir-fry for about 2 minutes, breaking up any clumps with a wooden spoon. Add the spinach, giving it a couple of turns to help it wilt. Tip the rice and vegetables onto a warmed serving plate and wipe out your wok or frying pan.
  2. Return the wok or frying pan to a high heat and add the rest of the coconut oil. When it is melted and hot, add the garlic and prawns and cook for about 1 minute, stirring every now and then, until the prawns are pink and cooked through.
  3. Spoon the garlicky prawns over the piri piri rice, finish with a squeeze of lemon juice and eat immediately.
Chef quote
The peas are actually black-eyed beans and add an extra protein boost. This is a great dish to double up, so you'll have some for lunch the next day.
