Last night I made Cauliflower Tabouleh and it was a hit! I also got a high 5 for fooling my family, they all came to the table saying mmmm couscous. When dinner was finished I said it wasn’t couscous it was cauliflower whizzed up to look like couscous. My friend’s family love tabouleh, she has started making this version…..apparently they hate cauliflower- she still hasn’t told them it’s actually cauliflower and not bulgar wheat!
Here’s my recipe….
1 head of cauliflower (taking the florets only)
1-2 tbsp of parmesan cheese
salt and olive oil
Whizz cauliflower in a blender until it resembles a rice texture. Pop in a bowl and stir through 1-2 tbsp of olive oil. Spread out on a tray and sprinkle parmesan cheese over top. Then grill until lightly browned. Let cool.
Other Salad Ingredients
While cauliflower is cooling prepare the rest of the salad.
1 teaspoon Lemon zest
1/4 cup Lemon juice
1/4 cup Olive oil
1/4 teaspoon Black pepper (coarsely ground)
1 teaspoon Salt
1 bunch of Parsley (finely chopped)
Few leaves of mint (to taste)
3 Tomatoes (cubed)
Place cooled cauliflower in a serving bowl and stir through the other ingredients.
