My tabbouleh recipe is grain free as it is made using riced raw cauliflower as a base, making it gluten free, low carb and low calorie!! Using cauliflower as a base is not only easy , it's nutritious. Cauliflower is one of the cruciferous vegetables that is touted to provide antioxidants that help prevent cancer. It is a great vegetable to include in your meuns.
In addition this recipe is a raw recipe which makes it a little crunchy .( if you are not into raw, you can saute your cauliflower for a few minutes and drain well before assembling with the remaining chopped vegetables.
I especially love this recipe not only because it is delicious and nutrient rich, but I also love it because it won't pack on the pounds. It's also perfect for a warmer night because it doesn't need any cooking, And you could bring it to a BBQ and everyone will love it.
Cauliflower is versatile. It lends itself to mimicking other starchier foods but without the calories.If you are looking for more raw recipes or just something a little different, give this cauliflower tabbouleh salad a try! ( Remember you could always saute the riced cauliflower first in a little olive oil spray)
