I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Cauliflower Rice Tabbouleh

When you go to the market and find a beautiful cauliflower...

12 oz cauliflower, cut in flowerets
1/3 cup finely chopped parsley
1/3 cup finely chopped mint (and/or beebalm leaves)
1 cup chopped English cucumber
3/4 -1 cup tomato, seeds and pulp removed and chopped
1/4 - 1/3 cup finely chopped onion

Use the shredding blade on a food processor or grate the cauliflower on a box grater. Add the rest of the ingredients. If you don't want your tabbouleh too minty you can substitute bee balm leaves for mint, giving it a milder mint flavour.

1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsps olive oil
Salt and lemon pepper to taste (I used approx 1/2 tsp each)

Mix up the dressing and toss with the veggies. Chill all day or even for a few days.

Very healthy dish. I even used it as a hot dog topping with some srirracha mayo. Ok not so healthy there but it was reeeeaallly good!
