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!

Hey!

Mediterranean Cauliflower Couscous

Mediterranean Cauliflower Couscous

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. Cut the cauliflower into chunks, including the cores.

2. Place into a food processor.

3. 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.

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

5. 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.
