Cauliflower Cous Cous (gluten-free)

cauliflower cous cous

This is a grain-free cous cous, that is actually really good for you. It’s a great way of sneaking cauliflower into our diets, and we all know we should be eating more cruciferous vegetables! It’s simple, it’s easy, and you can dress it up as little, or as much as you want. Here, I dressed it up with tomatoes, olives, parsley, garlic and olive oil, and served it with pan-fried mackerel stuffed with orange and almond meal. It was darn good!



  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into chunks


1. Fill the bowl of your food processor about halfway with cauliflower. Blitz the cauliflower until cous cous sized pieces are formed. Transfer to a large microwave-safe bowl. Continue until all of the cauliflower is used up.

2. Cover the bowl with cling film/plastic wrap, and microwave on full power for about 5 minutes. Check to see if the cauliflower grains are cooked. If they are still hard and slightly bitter, continue to cook until soft, but not mushy.

3. Season with salt and pepper, and use as regular cous cous (dressed up or not). Enjoy!
