Cauliflower Couscous

Cauliflower couscous mimics the real stuff in this vegetarian, gluten free spin off.

Is she seriously trying to get me to eat cauliflower the day before Labor Day weekend? I’m going to guarantee that’s what 90% of you (of those who are even reading this and not already off at the beach like I plan to be once this work day is over) are thinking right now.

Yep. I am. I don’t even really have a good reason other than it tasted good and my twisted mind has been craving vegetables more than sugar recently. I’m clearly not well.

I saw this on tasteologie yesterday when looking to see if one of my submissions had been accepted (it wasn’t, they’ve decided to hate me and my food lately for some reason. Whatever.) and it went from bookmarked to made for lunch in 1.5 hours. New record.

I also feel like I should tell you that I almost made my stripper debut on the internet in the above picture. See that spoon? See that weird tan background on the right side? That would be called “retouching the eff out of that so you can’t see up my shorts as I stood on chair taking this picture”. Food blogging…so scandalous.

I don’t really like real couscous, it’s just so bland and boring. I feel like cauliflower is kind of the same way. Looks like an albino broccoli but lacks all the flavor. This was a fun way to liven it up a bit with sautéed onion, coriander and cilantro. The bacon fat I sautéed it in might have helped too. So if you’re into completely de-vegetarianizing a perfectly good vegetarian dish, do that.

Happy Labor Day weekend!
