Cauliflower Tabbouleh

Tabbouleh is a traditional Lebanese dish made with bulgur or couscous; here I’ve substituted cauliflower rice which is a great way to squeeze some extra veggies into your diet. Serve simply on its own or else alongside my Baby Gem, Spinach & Broccoli Salad. It also works great with some sweet potato wedges and my Citrus Chicken.

Serves 4.

 

  • 1 small head cauliflower (around 250g)
  • 200ml vegetable stock
  • 4 tbsp pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp pistachio
  • 1 large bunch each of fresh parsley, mint & coriander
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  1. Remove the outer leaves from the cauliflower and cut into cubes. Blitz the cubes in the food processor until a rice consistency is formed.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat, add the cauliflower, 1 tbsp lemon juice & stock, bring to the boil, cover with a lid & reduce to a simmer until all the liquid is absorbed, stir regularly to ensure the cauliflower cooks evenly & doesn’t get stuck to the pan. Transfer to a large mixing bowl & allow to cool.
  3. Place all the seeds & pistachios in a small frying pan and toast over a medium heat until you hear the seeds pop.
  4. Roughly chop all the fresh herbs & add to the cauliflower with the pomegranate seeds, toasted seeds & lemon juice.Mix well together & serve.
