Some vegetables are most definitely underused in my kitchen. One of them is cauliflower. I admit I don’t really like it. To me, it’s the lamb of vegetables i.e. it needs to be flavoured with something more palatable before I’ll happily eat it. Cooked cauliflower can represent all that is bad about stereotypical British food. Wet, soggy, tasteless and bland with a nasty aftertaste. If that’s what you think too, just give it a chance raw. You might be pleasantly surprised.
This cauliflower tabouli is made with raw cauliflower and raw cauliflower is a completely different vegetable. Yes, it is. Raw cauliflower is crisp, tasty, perfect in salads or just on it’s own for a healthy vegetable snack. That’s right, I like raw cauliflower, I just don’t use it enough.
