#163 The Case of Cauliflower Couscous

You won't believe it until you try it!

1 medium head cauliflower, in florets
4 green onions, chopped
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 teaspoons cumin seed
2 teaspoons raw agave syrup
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 cup pine nuts
1/2 teaspoon chilli pepper flakes
1 cup chopped dates
1 cup currants

Pulse the cauliflower in a blender in batches until it looks like fluffy cooked couscous or rice.

Stir in the rest of the ingredients, including salt and pepper to taste.

Serve immediately to preserve texture.

Serves 4.

  1. Looks good. Interesting flavor combination.

    1. Thanks Susan. I would describe the flavour as lemon-zesty and surprisingly addictive. I think I'll use those exact words in my next Tweet. Speaking of Twitter, do you have an account? I read your short story "The Conversation" on your blog and really enjoyed it. I'm gonna Tweet it out!
