This vegetable based couscous is a great gluten-free alternative to actual couscous. It makes the PERFECT dish to make for Fourth of July and all of those other social gatherings/cookouts you may be going to this summer.

  • Ingredients:    

    about 3 cups cauliflower, riced
    1 medium english cucumber
    1 clove of garlic
    1 cup of grape tomatoes (optional & adjust amount if needed)
    2 tablespoons fresh parsley
    ½ cup of red onions, chopped (adjust amount if needed)*
    ¼ cup of kalamata olives (adjust amount if needed)
    3 tablespoons of lemon juice, fresh
    1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
    salt & ground black pepper to taste
  • Instructions:      

    1) Place the cauliflower into a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower reaches a rice-like texture. Be careful because you don’t want to over mix the cauliflower and end up pureeing it. 

    2) Transfer riced cauliflower to a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 8 minutes, or until cooked. 

    3) In a food processor, pulse oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon juice.

    4) Transfer cauliflower to a mixing bowl and the rest of the ingredients. 

    5) Add dressing and toss to combine.

    5) Enjoy!

    *Note: Soak onions in cold water first to reduce their pungency and make them more tolerable.
