I have been playing a lot with cauliflower in kitchen as of late. It is such a versatile and nutritious vegetable and it makes me so happy that so many people are discovering the wonderful ways to incorporate it into your diet that doesn’t involved steaming it!
My all time favorite way to eat cauliflower is to roast it with a healthy dose of olive oil, salt and pepper and cook it until it is lightly golden around the edges. Mmmmmm. In addition to that, I love to add cauliflower puree to my mashed potatoes and also to my cheese béchamel that I mix with noodles for my homemade mac and cheese. Nobody ever knows!
But my latest way to add cauliflower to things is to chop it until it looks like rice and add it to a salad in lieu of couscous, rice or bulgur. You can also sauté it lightly and add to warm dishes like cooked rice would lend itself but with the warmer days (hopefully) approaching, I thought using it raw would be a splendid idea! I hope you enjoy the below recipe as much as I do. It is bright and refreshing with plenty of herbs and lemon to brighten up your day!
