let's be friends!

As a certified Naturopath, my approach to wellness is fun, simple, and more of a gradual lifestyle change than a "quick-fix." You don't have to be perfect to see results; you can still have a life!

Mediterranean Cauliflower Couscous

Mediterranean Cauliflower Couscous


3 Cups Cauliflower

⅓ Cups Red Pepper, Finely Diced

⅓ Cups Yellow Pepper, Finely Diced

⅓ Cups Orange Pepper, Finely Diced

½ Cups Basil, Chopped

½ Cups Parsley, Chopped

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

3 Tablespoons Oil-Free Sundried Tomato, Finely Diced

2 Tablespoons Pitted Kalamata Olives, Finely Diced

2 teaspoons Lemon Zest

2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

1 Tablespoon Capers, Minced

½ Teaspoons Salt

⅛ Teaspoons Pepper


Cut the cauliflower into chunks, including the cores.

Place into a food processor.

Pulse until the cauliflower resembles the texture of rice. Work in batches, if necessary, and be careful not to over-process or it’ll get mushy. If you don’t have a food processor, you can grate the cauliflower with a cheese grater.

Place the cauliflower couscous in a large bowl and combine it with all the ingredients. Toss until well mixed.

Chill for at least 1 hour to let the flavors combine. For best results let it marinate overnight

Make It A Meal

Serve it with:

A garden salad: I used olive oil + red wine vinegar + sea salt for the dressing


Oven-baked sweet potato, topped with a drizzle of olive oil, sea salt, grilled hot or mild banana pepper and option to top with freshly sliced green chilli peppers.
