Cauliflower tabbouleh

I love tabbouleh and wasn’t holding out much hope for one that used cauli instead of bulgur wheat. But I need to offer some lower carb options for those who want them, particularly for our clients who are managing diabetes. Anyway – this was a revelation! You can barely tell it’s a cauliflower base, it’s just delicious food. I air-fried the blitzed cauli a bit so that it soaked up the dressing more easily and took the edge off that raw cauliflower flavour. Low carb person or not, I think you will love this.

You can add feta and chickpeas, or any other protein you like. You can also add bits and bobs like pomegranate seeds and a squeeze of fresh orange.

Ingredients

  • 1 cauliflower, floreted
  • 3 tomatoes
  • ⅓ of a cucumber
  • 3 spring onions,
  • a handful of fresh mint and a some fresh parsley
  • 2- tbsps of extra virgin olive oil
  • the juice of a fresh lemon
  • sea salt to taste

Try adding some feta and chickpeas to serve – v tasty!

Instructions

Using the large grater attachment on your food processor, blitz the cauli into fine bits then give it a blast with the chopper attachment – it shpuld resemble bulgur wheat. Or you can use a box grater on the fine side.

You don’t have to cook it but if you have an air fryer just blast the blitzed cauli for a couple of mins on 190º to soften it a bit.

Now finely chop all the other ingredients before combining the cauli and veg in a large bowl, and adding the olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

That’s it – serve with feta or whatever you like.

Nutrition Info

Cauliflowers are a member of the brassica family, renowned for their sulforaphanes, don’t you know?! A potent phytochemical with various health benefits, Sulforaphane has been associated with potential anti-cancer properties, as it may help to neutralise harmful free radicals and support the body’s natural detoxification processes. Research suggests that sulforaphane may also have anti-inflammatory effects and could contribute to cardiovascular health.
