Description

The cauliflower “couscous” is a fun way to add a fresh crunch to this warm winter salad. Sweet raisins and zesty curry powder make it a flavorful companion to braised chicken. Garnish with crumbled feta cheese if desired. Add cubed marinated and baked tofu to any leftovers and stuff into a pita for tomorrow’s lunch.

Ingredients

1 pound
cauliflower (florets)
2 tablespoons
olive oil (or butter)
1/2  
onion, yellow (thinly sliced)
2 cloves
garlic (peeled and minced)
2 cups
broccoli (florets)
1/3 cup
raisins
1  
chickpeas (15-ounce can, drained and rinsed)
1 tablespoon
curry powder
1/3 cup
water
1  
lemon juice (juice from 1 lemon)
   
salt (to taste)
   
black pepper (to taste)

Instructions

In a food processor, pulse the cauliflower florets until they resemble coarse grains that look like couscous. Set aside.

Heat the oil or butter over medium-high heat in a large pot. Add the onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and broccoli and sauté another 3 to 5 minutes. Add the raisins, chickpeas, curry powder and water and stir well. Add the cauliflower “couscous” and cook 3 to 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice. Taste for salt and pepper and serve warm.
