Living Cauliflower Couscous

Living Cauliflower Couscous

The main ingredient is cauliflower, processed so that it is the texture of couscous and soaks up the flavors of the other ingredients. The cauliflower is raw but if you prefer, you can roast or steam the riced cauliflower to desired tenderness.

3 tablespoons
