Cauliflower has always been at the bottom of my veggie list as a bland and boring vegetable. Currently I am giving my diet an overhaul and whilst looking for a substitute for rice and pasta I realized that when you grate or blitz your cauliflower, it can be used for lots of different dishes. So far I tried a Caulirisotto, a Cauli-Curry and yesterday I made a Cauliflower-Couscous (for 2). Cauliflower just moved way up my veggie list!
For the Cauliflower-Couscous I blitzed half a cauliflower in my Vitamix (dry mix function) but grating it by hand works just as fine and makes less noise...
Roast a handful of crushed walnuts in a dry pan, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and then pan fry sliced leek (I used 1 midsized leek) and half an onion until tender. Add the grated cauliflower and leave it took for a further 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt, pepper and fresh herbs and the your cauliflower couscous is good to go!
I served it with a chicken breast and mushroom cream sauce.
