Recipe for Cauliflower Couscous submitted by Margaret Hobbs

This serves 4 and is a good way to get use out of your cauliflower other than eating with a cooked dinner. I saw the recipe on Lorraine ITV and have made it loads of times and it’s very tasty. I serve it with a vegetable tagine. Quick and easy to make.

Ingredients for Cauliflower Couscous:

  • 1 small cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • ½ red onion
  • 50g toasted almonds
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method for Cauliflower Couscous:

  1. Grate cauliflower or pulse in food processor until it looks like large breadcrumbs, put in a bowl and drizzle with the oil, scatter on a large baking tray and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Roast in a preheated oven 180 fan for 25 minutes. Keep an eye on it so it does not burn.
  3. Once cooked put back into the bowl, add parsley, lemon juice, onions and almonds, taste again for seasoning.
  4. Serve warm.


This is a great substitute for rice for people who don’t like rice like myself.

    I was fortunate enough to share the cauliflower cous cous which Margaret made and found it delicious—couldn’t believe that it was made from cauliflower. It was very tasty indeed.
