This week I ♥ Cooking Clubs welcomes Dorie Greenspan and I serve
Time is out of joint, I am speechless and stunned by what is happening here in Europe. I distract myself with cooking and baking and hardly get to post the recipes in the blog. It would be a real pity if this delicious recipe was not found at Küchenlatein. I served it as a salad for lunch at work with a slice of homemade bread.
Dorie Greenspan’s Cauliflower Tabbouleh is a grain free version of the most popular Mediterranean salads. She uses grated cauliflower instead of bulgur.
- 1 head cauliflower; Ulrike about 550 grams
- 155 grams chickpeas, cooked, drained and patted dry
- 32 grams almonds, finely chopped, unblanched
- 10 grams fresh mint, finely chopped
- 10 grams parsley or cilantro, finely chopped fresh; Ulrike: parsley
- 40 grams raisins, moist and plump °
- 1–2 lemons
- Sea salt
- Pepper, freshly ground
- 1 tablesp. extra-virgin olive oil, or more to taste
- Remove the green leaves from the cauliflower. Cut it in half from top to bottom and then crosswise into quarters. Grate with the largest holes on a box grater. Put the cauliflower into a big bowl.
- Add the chickpeas, almonds, herbs, and raisins. Finely grate the zest of one lemon over the tabbouleh and then squeeze in the juice, tossing the salad lightly with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle over the olive oil and toss to incorporate. Taste the salad and see if you’d like more salt, pepper, lemon zest, juice and/or oil. I usually use the zest and juice of one and a half lemons and two tablespoons olive oil, but lemons vary in size and tartness.
- Serve the salad or, preferably, cover it tightly and refrigerate it for at least an hour.
° Put dried raisins in a bowl of hot tap water and set them aside to soak. When you’re ready for them, drain and pat dry.
