Cauliflower Couscous

As I promised you a while ago, (almost a year) I’m going to tell you about my latest favorite vegetable dish: cauliflower couscous. This is the easiest and tastiest recipe you can make using this underrated vegetable.  Growing up, I had a love-hate relationship with this unassuming vegetable, maybe because it was always prepared as a cheesy casserole or as a garlicky dip. Nothing spectacular, nothing extraordinary. Nowadays, with low carbohydrates diets getting more and more popular, this vegetable got its recognition at last. It might not look like much, but this superfood is a smart addition to your diet because of its health benefits. Numerous studies suggest that including cauliflower it in your diet, together with kale, and broccoli, may lower risk of developing cancer. So I encourage you to give Cauliflower couscous a try, you’ll repeat this recipe, I guarantee it.

Medium head of cauliflower, broken into florets (about 4-5 cups)

2 tablespoons olive oil

Medium onion finely chopped

1 teaspoon coriander powder

1 teaspoon turmeric powder

chili flakes,  garlic powder, salt, and pepper

1/3 cup chopped almonds (optional)

⅓ cup coarsely chopped cilantro


       In a food processor, add the cauliflower and pulse 4-5 times until the cauliflower is small chopped. Set aside.

 Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion,  and cook over medium heat around 5 minutes, until softened. Add the coriander, chili flakes, and turmeric powder. Mix well and cook another 5 minutes until all the flavors are combined. Add the chopped cauliflower, give the pan a shake to combine, and cover. Cook, shaking pan occasionally, until cauliflower is tender, 5–7 minutes. Toss in the chopped cilantro and the almonds; season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Transfer cauliflower rice to a platter. Top with cilantro leaves. DELISH!
