Cauliflower Couscous

The simple cauliflower makes for a tasty, healthy ‘couscous’

It is official: cauliflower is my new favourite vegetable!

Who would have thought that this vegetable is so incredibly versatile.  All my life I only knew it baked with cream, eggs, cheese and ham.

Then last year it blew my mind to discovered mashed cauliflower.   A few months later I found out that raw or blanched cauli makes for a lovely tabouleh-like dish. I was convinced the humble cauli held no more secrets for me. But I was so wrong!  I present: Cauliflower couscous.
