Delicious salad for anyone planning a BBQ for the weekend

Delicious salad for anyone planning a BBQ for the weekend

I love this recipe from Blacksheep Foods 
It’s extremely easy to make, nutritious and simply delicious. It’s the perfect accompaniment to any barbecued meats or grilled fish this Summer. Also a great one for the kids to try. 
Cauliflower Tabbouleh
Serves 5
  • 1 head of cauliflower roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 red onions diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • Sprig of fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Bunch of parsley, basil and mint roughly chopped
  • 1/2 a cucumber cut into small chunks
  • Cherry tomatoes cut into quarters
  • Handful of toasted flaked almonds
  • Place chopped cauliflower into a food processor and pulse a few times until it resembles the consistency of cous cous.
  • Place large pan over medium heat. Add olive oil and onions. Let cook for 2 minutes making sure the onions don’t burn. Add in garlic, rosemary, salt/pepper and let cook for another minute. 
  • Pour in cauliflower and stir to mix. Add lemon zest and juice and let cook for a further 5 minutes stirring every so often to ensure nothing burns (add in a splash of water if pan is too dry)
  • Pour mixture into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Taste and season accordingly. 
  • Option to add some crumbled feta cheese over the top if you wish.
