You will need:
- 1 head cauliflower
- 5oz raw cashews
- 3oz golden raisins
- Juice of 2 lemons

Cut cauliflower into small florets.
Put in a food processor (or Vitamix) in small batches until it is the texture of couscous.
Put in a large skillet on medium heat for 9-10 minutes, stirring often.
Set it aside in a large bowl and let it cool.
Put raisins in water for 15 minutes.
Drain water and add raisins to cauliflower.
Toast cashews by putting them in a large skillet on medium low until they are golden.
I like them a little “over golden” 🙂
Add to cauliflower
Add chopped parsley to cauliflower.
Add in: juice of lemons, lemon zest, za’atar, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper.
Very important: Let it sit 15 minutes for the flavors to blend!!!!
Serve with attitude and see how much they love it!!!
This would be an amazing side dish or you could add chicken. Either way, you don’t feel like you are eating vegetables 🙂
