Cauliflower is a great low carb substitute for grains. I love adding this dish on top of salads, often with a scoop of hummus.
What you'll need:
1 head cauliflower - separate the cauliflower from the stem part - you don't want the stem because it doesn't break down into a rice consistency
small bunch of mint, roughly chopped
3 scallions (just the white part), finely chopped
1/2 cucumber, skinned and finely chopped
1/3 cup chickpeas
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon cumin
squeeze of fresh lemon
1/4 teaspoon salt
-Place broken pieces of cauliflower in a blender and pulse until it becomes more of a rice-like consistency. You may need to get in there and stir as there is not liquid in the blender to help move things around.
-Remove cauliflower to a mixing bowl and fold in mint leaves, chopped cucumber, chickpeas
-Mix dressing ingredients and fold into cauliflower.
-Dig in and enjoy!
