Last week I made a tabouleh salad using Finnish organic quinoa. The end result was a sticky, gooey porridge. It got eaten, but not with a big smile. This time, I decided to try cauliflower instead and Yes, now we’re talking! This recipe is raw, simple and quick to make, so even better.
Side dish for 4-6 people:
1 middle-sized cauliflower
1 small red onion or 1/2 of a bigger one
2 large, firm tomatoes
1 bunch of fresh flat leaf parsley
1/2 bunch of fresh mint
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp ground cumin
salt & pepper to taste
Wash and chop the cauliflower florets into fine pieces or use a food processor to grind it. Do the same with the peeled red onion, flat leaf parsley and mint. Mix them all in a bowl.
Remove the seeds from the tomatoes. Chop them into small cubes and add to the mix.
Cut the 1/2 cucumber in half lengthwise and scoop out the watery seeds part with a tea spoon. Cut the cucumbers in small cubes & toss them into the salad.
Squeeze in the lemon juice, add the cumin and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.
