Curried Cauliflower Couscous Salad recipe shared by Nikki.

I never liked cauliflower. It was always bland and boring to me. But then I stumbled upon this recipe online that claimed to turn it into a delicious couscous dish. I was skeptical, but curious. So I decided to give it a try.

The recipe was pretty simple. I just had to chop up the cauliflower and blitz it in a food processor until it looked like tiny grains. Then I cooked it in some vegetable stock with some spices to give it some flavor. I added some raisins, almonds, shallots, bell peppers, and cilantro for some extra crunch and color.

The result was amazing. The cauliflower was fluffy and tender, with a hint of sweetness from the raisins and a kick of spice from the curry powder. It tasted nothing like the cauliflower I knew. It was like a whole new dish. I loved it so much that I ate the whole pot by myself.

That’s how I discovered the magic of cauliflower couscous. It changed my life and my palate. Now I make it all the time, with different variations and toppings. It’s my go-to meal when I want something quick, easy, and satisfying. If you haven’t tried it yet, you should. You won’t regret it.
