Cauliflower Couscous 

by WorldAccordingtoSamHughes

  

1 cauliflower, green leaves removed and broken into florets (remove most of the stem retaining the flowery head)

Juice from 1.5 lemons

1 lg tsp of Dijon/Wholegrain Mustard

1 onion finely chopped

Lots of fresh green herbs ( flat leaf parsley/coriander/basil/mint) according to your preference 

A little oil 

Salt & Pepper to taste 

(Today was an experiment but in future will add pomegranate seed and possibly some grilled red pepper for extra colour)

  

Place cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until a fine couscous texture 

In a pan heat your oil and soften the onion, add the cauliflower couscous and heat through thoroughly. Mix the mustard lemon juice, salt & pepper. 

When couscous is heated pour over the lemon and mustard mix, stir in until fully dispersed. Finally add your herbs just before serving ( if you put in too early they will discolour and lose some of their zing!)

Perfect accompaniment to tagines, roasted lamb or as a lunchtime snack on its own
