Cauliflower Rice Tabbouleh


  • 1 large head of cauliflower or a bag of already riced cauliflower
  • 1 cup chopped cucumber
  • ¾ cup diced cherry or Roma tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion or green onion
  • ½ cup chopped fresh mint
  • ½ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Juice from 1 large lemon, about ¼ cup
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

1. Begin by preparing cauliflower rice, if you don’t already have a bag of it. Take the head of cauliflower and chop into florets. Put in a food processor for about 10-15 seconds until it comes out as the texture of rice. If your bag of cauliflower rice is frozen, heat it in the microwave for 3 minutes.
2. Place rice in a large bowl. Add all chopped vegetables and herbs and mix well.
3. Whisk together lemon juice, garlic, oil, salt and pepper. Pour dressing over vegetable mixture and stir to coat.
4. Add more salt & pepper to taste. Serve immediately or refrigerate to let the flavors meld.
