Spiced Cauliflower Rice

Delicious bowl of riced cauliflower with spices, raisins, and almonds


Place the raisins in a bowl and pour warm water over them. Leave the raisins for about 15 minutes, until plump. Drain and discard the water.

Break the cauliflower into florets, making sure to leave behind as much of the stem as possible. Chop the florets into smaller pieces. Transfer the cauliflower into food processor in batches, and pulse until the pieces are finely chopped and resemble couscous or rice. Be careful not to over-process.

In a large sauté pan, heat three tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice to the pan and cook for about 7 minutes, stirring frequently.

Remove the cauliflower from the heat and let it cool. Add the raisins, almonds, cumin, parsley, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Leave the mixture alone for about 15 minutes for the flavors to combine. Serve at room temperature.
