Cauliflower cous cous

One way to get an extra portion of vegetables in your day is to use cauliflower in devious ways!

Cut a cauliflower in half, remove the main chunk of the stalk, break into florets and blitz it, half at a time, in a food processor till it looks like cous cous.

At the weekend I served it with courgettes, mushrooms, leeks, celery, almonds, all very finely chopped, and some plump dried fruit. It’s great like this and it’s also good with a dressing As the picture shows, I also served it as rice (tossed in oil, spread on a baking sheet and roasted at Gas 6 for 12 minutes) with a Quorn and vegetable curry. This also has the added bonus of keeping carbs sensible.

As the picture also shows, we had a sneaky bag of Lentil Curls from the Co-op…they were my once-a-month crisp alternative. No alcohol at all this weekend and we didn’t miss it.
