Raw Tabbouleh Recipe


Another week has gone by with no blogging. My computer seems to have some kind of virus so I cant even get on the internet. sigh. So I am borrowing Sean's computer so I can share this recipe with you guys. I have been struggling with my diet for awhile now. I am vegetarian (mostly vegan) but I have a serious caffeine, sugar and junk food addiction. Its actually not an addiction now that I think about it I just get frustrated when I cant figure out what to eat. I have done a few raw detoxes but I want to make it a lifestyle. It is so hard! I hate breakfast, so when I find something I can stand I get obsessed and eat it everyday. Lately it has been cinnamon rolls. Today I had the red juice I shared a few months ago for lunch, and then I made this raw tabbouleh for dinner. I have seen a few recipes floating around the internet but I added a little twist of my own.

Raw Tabbouleh

Ingredients

1 head of cauliflower
1 bunch of parsley
1 container of cherry tomatoes
2 green onions
a handful of mint leaves
juice of 2 lemons
sea salt + pepper



 Instead of using the traditional bulghur wheat, this raw recipe calls for cauliflower! To make the cauliflower "rice" chop up the cauliflower and pulse it in a food processor until fine and grainy. It should be like snow. But be careful not to over process or it will turn to mush.

Finely chop the parsley and mint, slice the onions, and cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Add this into a bowl with the cauliflower rice. Squeeze two lemons over the whole mixture. Add just a pinch or two of salt (or to taste) and a few grinds of the pepper.



 This is a very basic recipe. If you like you can add a chopped cucumber, bell peppers or any other Mediterranean type of veggie that you think will mix well. I bet this would even taste good if you use quinoa!
