Delicious & Healthy Cauliflower Tabbouleh

0 from 0 ratings

One of my favorite side dishes to make has always been homemade tabbouleh. I was walking around my grocery store the other day, looking for inspiration, when I saw an over-priced container of tabbouleh and instantly knew what I was going to make that night. What I love the most about this recipe is that it has such a strong taste, yet lacks the grains and oil that are typically a part of most tabbouleh recipes.

Cauliflower Tabbouleh- super healthy & delicious.

Though the ingredient list is simple, the flavors are not. Lemon, lime, garlic, cilantro, sea salt, and pepper envelop the grated cauliflower and tomatoes in a dressing that is unbelievably pleasing to the senses. You’ll be wondering why you were eating the traditional quinoa tabbouleh for so long once you realize how much of a delicious nutrient powerhouse this is.

This winning combination of cauliflower and tomatoes is high in fiber, iron, manganese, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamin, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin B5, and vitamin C. Phew! That’s a long list of nutrients. And all for a whopping 52 calories a serving. Try to tell me you won’t be making this every week. Simple, nutritious, and aesthetically pleasing – this will be a hit with anyone who enjoys a bit of Mediterranean cuisine.

Ingredients

    • 1 head cauliflower
    • 4 tomatoes
    • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
    • ¼ cup lemon juice
    • ¼ cup lime juice
    • 2 tsp garlic powder
    • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Grate the entire head of cauliflower (stem and leaves omitted), so that it resembles quinoa or rice. I used a grater and accomplished the task by hand, although a food processor would be a much faster and easier alternative. Place into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Dice tomatoes and finely chop cilantro.
  3. Mix together the tomatoes, cilantro, and grated cauliflower.
  4. Add in the lemon juice, lime juice, sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Mix well.
  5. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Tried this and was not a fan. It probably would of been better if you baked/broiled the grated cauliflower first. Adding the lime juice is completely unnecessary. Way too much liquid even for regular tabbouleh.

  2. I did not cook the cauliflower, put this through the food processor along with the cilantro as I dislike chopping cilantro and this was so good, I will for sure make this again
