Cauliflower Couscous Salad
I hate cauliflower…it’s so bland the only time I liked it is when my cousin made it for Christmas lunch covered in cheese sauce, that was the case until this week.
I had dinner with a group of lovely ladies at a fantastic restaurant in Northcote. We picked the banquet because everything on the menu sounded so amazing we would have sat there all night trying to decide for ourselves. One of the dishes served was cauliflower couscous. I can tell you one thing for sure, I would not have chosen that, yet here we are…
It may not be the authentic restaurant version but either way, I’m a convert. I’m going to eat all of it for my dinner tonight but really it is probably meant to be served as a side for 4-6 people or split between 2 and served with a grilled lamb steak or chicken fillet.
There was a little bit of prep but nothing too onerous, I couldn’t have cooked anything complicated tonight. Between dress fittings for my bridesmaids (6 weeks to go, eeeek!!), a batch of nectarine chutney on the stove (house smells amazing) and the putting green being installed in the back yard (yes you read that right), I’m pretty damn tired.
Anyway, even if you hate cauliflower too I would recommend giving this a try…
