Cauliflower Tabbouleh

This raw vegan tabbouleh is the easiest thing to make

Este saludable y rico tabbouleh de coliflor es vegano, no tiene gluten, y es muy fácil de hacer.A few weeks ago a friend wanted me to try the cauliflower tabbouleh she had bought at the supermarket. I fell in love at first bite! It was such a coincidence too, because I had just shared a lentil tabbouleh recipe in my #VeganChallenge just a few days before. I wanted to give the participants a gluten-free way to serve this Middle Eastern staple usually made with bulgur or couscous. So I used lentils with delicious results, but after trying this I thought… “I should’ve used cauliflower!!!”

Full disclosure: I’m a cauliflower freak. When I was a teenager I went through a phase where I almost ate one whole cauliflower every day because I loved the tasty too freakin much! I actually took it so far that for many years I couldn’t even be in the same room as a cauliflower without feeling nauseous! Luckily, I’m all back to normal now 😉

Since I didn’t share this fabulous recipe in my #VeganChallenge, I decided to redeem myself and share it here. I wrote down all the ingredients on the label, and went home to recreate it as best I could. Here you have it!

This healthy and delicious cauliflower tabbouleh is vegan, gluten-free, and super easy to make.

How to serve it:

-On its own, like a salad. (Or you can mix it with quinoa or brown rice or even with cubed cooked potatoes if you want a sturdier dish).

-Fill 2 avocado halves with it (yum!). You could also fill 2 bell pepper halves (not as yum as avocados but still good 😀 )

-Spread some lettuce leaves with hummus and then full with this tabbouleh to make some super fresh and delicious wraps.

-Serve as a sauce over some gluten free pasta or vegetable pasta.
