Purple Cauliflower Tabbouleh

Cauliflower Tabbouleh With Toasted Hemp Seeds

Cauliflower seems to be the new 'it' vegetables these days.

I like to prepare it as a faux-buttered popcorn. To two cups of broken-up cauliflower florets, I add one teaspoon oil and 1/2 teaspoon turmeric fennel salt. After I toss that together, I add a pinch of lemon zest, raw garlic and a knife-point of cayenne pepper. Taste it like this and add just enough salt and pepper to balance out the flavors.

But my favorite preparation is a gluten-free and vegan take on tabbouleh. Instead of bulgur wheat, I pulverize cauliflower in a food processor to get that rice-like consistency. It's fresh and light, and a dish that everyone can enjoy.
