One of my favourite recipes…

To keep you busy until you’re able to visit me in the Teaching Kitchen,
try this gluten-free / dairy-free, Paleo, and/or AIP recipe that is part of my weekly repertoire.

Cauliflower Tabbouleh

This dish reminds me of all of the lovely people
with whom I shared my days in Lebanon.

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower, “riced”
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • several mint leaves
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 1 lemon, both zest and juice
  • 1 pomegranate
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • Rice your cauliflower and set aside.  (You can do this step in advance, and keep “cauliflower rice” in the freezer to save time.)
  • Finely mince your herbs and onion.
  • Wash, grate, and juice your lemon.
  • Open your pomegranate and place the seeds in a bowl.
  • In a large frying pan, sauté your onion in a small amount of olive oil.
  • Add the riced cauliflower and continue to fry until it begins to brown.
  • Remove from the heat and lay out on a cookie sheet; place in the fridge to cool.
  • Once the cauliflower mixture has cooled, add in chopped herbs, pomegranate seeds, lemon juice and zest, and more olive oil (to taste).
  • Season with salt and reserve in the fridge.  Serve cold.
