Cauliflower couscous

I’ve heard a lot about this, as it’s good for dieters due to having very few calories. It definitely didn’t fool me into thinking it was couscous, but it did make quite a nice salad that we are having with a barbecue tomorrow, and that I would make again.

Put he basic idea is to chop cauliflower really small so it looks like couscous, apparently you can keep it raw for couscous, or fry it in a bit of oil for cauliflower rice. I figured the fried version would be loads more flavourful, although obviously a lot more calories, so I fried it in avocado oil, which was delicious. To make the salad I then added seasoning, Cajun spice mix and a tin of sweetcorn. It is pretty tasty, but not the same as a proper carb accompaniment. However, I would definitely include it as a barbecue salad again.

Nb. I chopped my cauliflower with the proper grater setting, and ended up with some big lumps. Better to use the normal chopper blade I reckon.
